Rapid Applications for Transport (RAPTOR), an agile, entrepreneurial challenge-based competition with rapid development timelines, is a powerful tool in the EIT Urban Mobility Innovation agenda.

In 2023, 12 cities from 10 countries across Europe are searching for start-ups/SMEs to help solve critical urban mobility issues. The RAPTOR competition will see each city, supported by technical and business advisors, select the most promising start-ups and SMEs to receive 35 000 euro funding to develop their solution to be tested in the city within five months of award.

A maximum of 12 awardees, one per city challenge, will be selected and supported by EIT Urban Mobility financially, technically, and commercially, from August to December 2023. In addition to funding of up to €35 000, awardees will receive technical and business mentoring, and support to market and promote the project. Applicants are sought from EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated states.
