Innovation

From research to application

From innovative ideas
to real-life applications

The Innovation Programme aims to resolve urban mobility challenges facing European cities via action orientated innovation. We co-create ideas that lead to the proposal of projects in response to our annual call for proposals, the demonstration of new solutions in real life and the creation of commercial value.

The Programme develops partnerships across and beyond Europe and addresses regulatory and behavioural changes needed to improve urban life quality for all citizens.

Innovation Challenge Areas ​

Over 250+ urban mobility challenges were identified by cities across Europe. These  challenges were reworked into 9 wider “Challenge Areas”. Each year a work programme is developed with a focus on a number of the innovation challenge areas:

  • Active Mobility
  • Intermodality
  • Mobility infrastructure
  • Mobility for all
  • Pollution reduction
  • Sustainable city logistics
  • Creating public realm
  • Future mobility
  • Mobility and energy
