TICER

By combining our best experience into one course, TICER aims to educate start-ups and innovators on how to scale in cities. The objective is to develop an education service that provides innovators and start-ups with the right entrepreneurial skills and a clearer picture of the position of their innovation on the market by delivering a better understanding of the functioning, law-making and challenges faced by the participating city.

It also gives innovators the opportunity to further develop their product or service using a citizen-focused user experience to understand the motivations of citizens. This will lead to innovative solutions that are viable, scalable, and both meet the citizens’ needs and city regulations.

The training will consist of separate modules with the following themes:

  • entrepreneurial knowledge and skills;
  • user experience;
  • city regulations;
  • citizen behaviour.

The theoretical section will be primarily available online but will also be extended with face-to-face workshops to acquire practical knowledge. Representatives from the participating cities will contribute to the law-making session. After finishing the development and pilot, we plan to take TICER to other cities in the EU through the EIT Urban Mobility network.

SummerSchoolUM

This project aims to close the knowledge gap and to raise awareness about safe, green, and inclusive mobility solutions for people and goods through summer schools and other training courses for students, young specialists, and academics in the fields of city logistics and urban mobility. More specifically the objectives are:

  • to raise awareness of the EIT Urban Mobility education activities and services;
  • to attract a large number of students to education activities, with a focus on the Master School and raise interest and attract participants from Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) countries to the EIT Urban Mobility´s labelled programmes;
  • to provide education and training with a focus on innovation in cities and urban challenges to assist in the training of specialists capable of the after-war restoration of Ukrainian cities in accordance with the European Union policy and vision.

The general idea is to provide summer schools and training courses presenting innovative urban mobility solutions and EU implementations. Additionally, Polish and Ukrainian case studies will be developed to raise awareness of the conflict among urban mobility stakeholders and arouse interest in finding possible urban mobility solutions. To strengthen the practical approach of the Summer Schools, speakers from businesses and city authorities are invited to present real urban mobility projects  in lectures and workshops. This will enable the analysis of real urban mobility problems and proposed solutions.

TRAILS

TRAILS fosters innovation in electromobility education in Bulgaria and Malta. The objective is to ignite and expand the education and future work capacity in these two countries from the regional innovation scheme. The project began with an assessment of the local needs in electromobility and new vehicle technologies. A specifically developed training for teachers programme will enable the transfer of knowledge from the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) and Cleantech Bulgaria (CTBG) to industry, local schools and higher education institutions, enabling educators to develop new methodologies to teach skills that are needed for the future of mobility. To address the specific needs of industry partners, the project also includes a strong collaboration between local educational institutions and industry partners.

MICLC

While cities in Europe strive to accelerate the shift towards cleaner transport, urban mobility sector operators, simultaneously, face many obstacles when deploying, testing, or scaling their products. Companies frequently lack a clear roadmap for deployment or required resources for product testing. In many European cities, the process from prototype to deployment and testing can take up to 18-22 months. This unnecessarily impedes innovation and decreases the competitive edge of businesses.

The project demonstrates how synchronised urban mobility product and service deployment and testing procedures in the public sector save resources for municipal and private sector stakeholders alike while accelerating innovation and product time to market rates in the urban mobility and smart city context, in general. All the project activities rely on a user-centric perspective obtained from start-ups and other leading private sector urban mobility operators.

MOBINNO-EXPERIENCES 

MOBINNO-EXPERIENCES creates high-quality audiovisual material that showcases real-life experiences from leading start-ups, corporations, industry players, and cities in the field of environmentally sustainable mobility, particularly those based in Malta and the south-east European region.   

Content covering entrepreneurship, innovation and mobility is being produced for potential entrepreneurs, professionals, and citizens interested in mobility challenges in Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) countries. 

The multimedia materials will be uploaded to a massive open online course (MooC) to maximise free and open access.
