Register for the Innovation Leadership Program

Innovation Leadership Program is a 2-day program, that aims to expand, accelerate and deepen the societal impact of the EIT Urban Mobility community by equipping the researchers and students with strong leadership skills and confidence in applying these skills by giving them first hand exposure to the challenges and issues that cities face. 

While researchers and professors are deep experts in their knowledge domain, they often lack the soft skills that are required for innovation and solving multi-faceted, cross-disciplinary societal challenges. The Innovation Leadership Program aspires to fill this gap by bringing researchers together and train their skills.
