InnovaCity – EIT Urban Mobility’s first project, successful!

Publication Date: 15/06/2019

InnovaCity is a project of EIT Urban Mobility, which took place between April and June 2019, offering a challenge-based learning opportunity for professionals from cities, start-ups and corporates.

During EIT Urban Mobility’s InnovaCity programme, 90 employees from municipalities, start-ups and corporates came together in three local hubs in Tel Aviv-Yafo, Munich and Barcelona to learn how to solve urban mobility challenges in a user-centered way while getting to know the main stakeholders in this area.

The InnovaCity trainings were undertaken by three leading engineering schools in Europe in close collaboration with the three cities, namely with the Technion, the Technical University of Munich and the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.

In the local hubs, participants worked in cross-sector teams to tackle prevailing challenges, prototyping viable solutions and finally pitching their results in front of a panel of experts.

In collaboration with EcoMotion, the winning teams from each location were offered a travel stipend to visit the global event in Tel Aviv-Yafo, the EcoMotion Fair, a global start-up fair for Urban Mobility.

There, the three local winning teams had to pitch their ideas to a professional jury. The winner of the competition was the team from Tel-Aviv (see photo). Congratulations!
