Our Academy is a collaborative arena for lifelong learning, helping to build critical capabilities for innovation and transformation. We are training the next generation of urban mobility practitioners, needed by the urban mobility ecosystem of the future. Within the Academy, there are three main areas: the Master School, the Doctoral Training Network and the Competence Hub.
In addition, the EIT Urban Mobility Academy is involved in a number of education initiatives in cooperation with the other EIT Knowledge Innovation Communities, EIT KICs, such as EIT Food, EIT Health, EIT Climate, etc. EIT Urban Mobility is part of the Strategic Education Cluster, in which EIT Urban Mobility works with other EIT KICs on the development of the EIT Virtual Campus. The EIT Virtual Campus aims at bringing the KICs’ professional education offer closer together to tackle the needs of modern economies and societies together.
One of EIT Urban Mobility’s main contributions to the Strategic Education Cluster will be managing the design, development, and testing of this brand-new EIT Virtual Campus. The long-term aspiration of the EIT Virtual Campus is to integrate all education offers across the eight KICs in one single portal, with a focus on professional education to begin with.

Ensuring that any relevant best-practice from the EIT Virtual Campus and similar cross-KIC Education initiatives are properly leverages by the Academy Competence Hub and vice versa.
- Supporting the production of any kind of digital content (text, video, audio, interactive) and/or the improvement of the quality of our online courses from a UX/UI perspective, by providing technical guidance and ensuring that our quality standards and guidelines are followed during production and postproduction.
