Event Details

The SME Market Expansion Call for Innovation (previously known as the Small Call) is launching in November!

The SME Market Expansion Call for Innovation is a call for SMEs that supports the development of new – or significantly improved – solutions for expansion into a new industry sector or geographic market. It provides SMEs with an opportunity to do complete usage testing with an end client within the project timeline.

The SME Market Expansion Call for Innovation contributes to the EIT Urban Mobility’s societal impact goal of job creation and strengthening the European urban mobility sector. It offers a pathway for SMEs to expand and grow, supporting them to enter business and commercial relations with businesses, transport providers, cities, and city authorities that have heavy procurement and compliance requirements. Often these complex rules base excludes SMEs, de facto, from entering the market and driving faster innovation and better solutions.

Come along to this information session to learn how you can be part of the next cohort of agile innovation pilots taking place across Europe.


SMEs that can offer solutions to key providers within the urban mobility ecosystem such as city authorities, passenger transport operators, logistics and mobility providers, energy companies, police, and security services, etc.


In 2024, it is planned to award 12 projects to be implemented out by 12 different legal entities, each with an EIT funding allocation of 59,500 EUR.


The challenge areas cover three main topics: Energy, Logistics, and Future Digital.  

Within these areas, solutions could address, but are not limited to, the following sub-topics: Artificial Intelligence/Big Data, Autonomous Vehicles, CarOS, V2X, Last Mile Brokerage Services, Physical Safety & Security, Cybersecurity, Mass Transit User Experience, Software Defined Mobility, ITS, MaaS, Mobility Interchanges, Asset Management & Monitoring, Billing/Ticketing, LTE Connectivity.
