In order to support the vision of creating more liveable urban spaces, EIT Urban Mobility is opening a call for applications for 2 posts to manage the Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) portfolio of EIT Urban Mobility.
EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) is a structured outreach scheme of EIT Urban Mobility. EIT RIS is designed to disseminate knowledge, know-how, good practices and lessons learnt emerging from EIT Urban Mobility’s activities, as well as to widen participation in its activities. EIT RIS is designed as a two-way interaction scheme.
EIT RIS focuses on countries with limited or no participation in the EIT Urban Mobility, where innovation capacity is moderate or modest and which otherwise would not be able to benefit from the experience gained by EIT Urban Mobility.
The RIS team will be responsible for the continuing development of RIS community and portfolio, monitoring programmes, driving excellence and providing quality support and service to our RIS partners.
The RIS Officers will report to the RIS Manager for day-to-day line management and strategic direction. The primary focus will be to ensure the smooth running of the RIS programme and building a strong community in the RIS countries impacting quality of European urban life.
