RAPTOR Programme: Solving real urban challenges with mobility startups

The RAPTOR Programme is shaking up the status quo and matching European city administrations with innovative startups to disrupt and solve the toughest urban mobility challenges.

A global perspective

Introducing RAPTOR

So how does it work? European cities define a mobility challenge that they face, such as increasing bus ridership or making pedestrian journeys safer, and European start-ups or SMEs apply to an open call with their proposed solution. The winners of the competition are then awarded with up to 35 000 Euro, mentoring from EIT Urban Mobility, and process to develop and test their innovative solution in-situ over five months.

Agility for success

“Thanks to the RAPTOR programme we managed to find a start-up working on solving our challenge, the feedback is positive, and we are looking forward to delivering this solution.” –
Vaclav Kozeny, Deputy Mayor of Prague 6
