Even though innovation in urban mobility in Europe has grown in the most recent years, driven by a growing emphasis on sustainability, real challenges persist in this scenario. Thus, European and Portuguese cities offer fertile ground for innovation and entrepreneurship in the urban mobility sector.


In this context, the EIT Urban Mobility Innov4Mobility Winter School is an immersive and dynamic learning experience that empowers students to tackle the pressing challenges of urban mobility through an entrepreneurial lens. With a focus on urban mobility, our Winter School will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the complexities and opportunities within this rapidly evolving field. Through a challenge-based approach, students engage in hands-on learning, applying entrepreneurial principles to identify, analyse, and propose innovative solutions to real-world urban mobility issues faced by European cities today.


This school will be held in person in Aveiro (Portugal), from the 12th to the 16th of February 2024.
Aveiro, an European Rising Innovative city and the third most innovative district in Portugal, offers an entrepreneurial spirit. We aim to leverage this mindset to revolutionise mobility locally, nationally, and across Europe.
