Accelerate2MOVE is a thematic accelerator focusing on artificial intelligence, blockchain, 5G, vehicle-to-everything (V2X), Internet-of-Things connectivity and Web 3.0 – all advanced technologies that can contribute to sustainable urban mobility. Over three years, the accelerator will provide support to at least 36 early-stage companies with solutions that have been tested in a lab or have a prototype demonstrated in an operational environment. Each year, Accelerate2MOVE consortium will recommend to EIT Urban Mobility at least 4 top performers for investment.

The Accelerator will also strengthen the market position for start-ups and scale-ups related to urban mobility from the EU and Third countries associated to Horizon Europe. The consortium of six partners from Croatia, Latvia and Slovenia will manage the accelerator, equipped with the necessary experience, knowledge and skills to design and implement the programme in all the different technology fields. The partners will leverage their specific expertise and strong existing networks, which include mentors from industry and potential investors.


Insufficient support for new solutions with high potential to impact the behaviour of transport users and contribute to sustainable urban mobility.
