Call for Innovation for the Business Plan 2023-2025

During 2021, the Climate Crisis and Covid-19 focused our attention on the pressing need for more action and less reflection on how we can create healthy, liveable, and sustainable cities. The Innovation Programme of 2022 is well placed to help us find practical ways to address these challenges. In 2022, our community will develop solutions and products driving the use of second life batteries, alternative energy, grid/micro-grid management, tackling last mile pollution and congestion, autonomous delivery, active mobility, sustainable logitsics, and creating dynamic shared spaces for both vehicles and pedestrians.

This year´s Call for Innovation will focus on the same four City Challenges as last year: Active Mobility, Sustainable City Logistics, Energy and Mobility, and Future Mobility. Retaining the same Challenge Areas was a decision made in consultation with our community, and in considering the exceptional strength of the proposals and the quality of the partnerships received last year.

We look forward to receiving your applications for inclusion in the Business Plan 2023-2025.

Main features of the call

The overall purpose of the Innovation Programme is to resolve challenges facing European cities to improve citizens’ lives, by taking innovative ideas and putting them to the test in real life.

Urban mobility challenges include issues such as equality of access, eco-efficiency, physical and digital safety, harnessing of new technologies, population growth, and air quality. Within our action orientated innovation, we also address the regulatory and behavioural changes needed to improve urban life quality.

The Innovation Programme co-creates ideas that lead to the proposal of projects, the demonstration of new solutions, the development of living labs, and the creation of commercial value.

Over 250 urban mobility challenges were identified by cities across Europe. These challenges were reworked into 9 wider ‘Challenge Areas’.

For the Call for Innovation, four challenge areas will be supported directly by the Innovation Programme: Active Mobility, Sustainable City Logistics, Future Mobility, and Mobility & Energy.

NetZeroCities: EIT Urban Mobility working to support cities to achieve climate neutrality by 2030

NetZeroCities Overview

Europe has pledged to lead on climate action and has set forth ambitious goals and directives to achieve that commitment. Horizon Europe, the European Green Deal and other European Union policies and directives propel European Member States towards a 55% cut in emissions by 2030 and climate neutrality by 2050.  Cities are envisioned to lead in this respect, achieving net zero carbon emissions faster and ensuring our decarbonisation efforts are equitable and contribute to the well-being of European communities. This level of impact is an extraordinary undertaking for each city and will require profound and systemic changes. Government leadership will be critical, and actions by industry, education and research institutions, and civic organisations must align in terms of policies, governance, and how we arrange for the needed capital investments.

Launched in October 2021, NetZeroCities is a four-year project designed to help cities overcome the current structural, institutional, and cultural barriers they face in order to achieve climate neutrality by 2030. The project will enable European cities and citizens to show the way forward towards an inclusive, thriving, climate resilient and sustainable future and this will be achieved by working in:

  • The development of a service-oriented platform supported by world-class practitioners.
  • The co-creation of solutions needed to achieve net zero goals in a socially inclusive way
  • Capacity building on systemic change, citizen engagement and democratic governance, capital and financial structuring, and social innovation
  • The development and promotion of new and existing tools, resources, and expertise into a one-stop shop platform that will be accessible to all cities through an online portal
  • Supporting of up to 30 pilot cities to help drive rapid learning about how to achieve climate neutrality at the city scale

Cities will benefit from an intensive support relationship and dedicated services to achieve their net zero goals. The project supports the EU’s Mission of “100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities by 2030” newly launched as part of the Horizon Europe programme. The Mission seeks to scale the activities of this project across 100 cities, and to tackle the unprecedented capital investments needed to make such a transformation possible.

Role of EIT Urban Mobility

To achieve this, NetZeroCities gathers 33 partners from 13 countries. EIT Urban Mobility as a member of the partnership will bring its knowledge and expertise on sustainable urban mobility and transportation, as well as its strong ties to cities and network organisations in the field. EIT Urban Mobility will contribute to the call for pilots and engage with cities to understand their barriers, drivers and needs to achieve climate neutrality targets. With other NetZeroCities partners, we will direct support to cities in the scaling up of piloted and tested solutions and provide state-of-the-art expertise on mobility solutions to help cities reach climate neutrality.  

By working in the implementation of NetZeroCities, we are supporting our vision of creating more liveable urban spaces, by fostering innovation and transformation to improve quality of life and decarbonisation in European cities.

NetZeroCities is coordinated by EIT Climate-KIC and builds on the expertise of its partners, leveraging a vast array of knowledge and expertise, as well as access to a large network of cities throughout Europe.

Launch of RAPTOR Call for Proposals

DEADLINE EXTENDED 25 FEBRUARY 2022!

ADDENDUM to City RAPTOR Call: Given the recent reworking of EIT UM Partnership categories and the new Leading City status, an addendum must be made to the City RAPTOR Call 2022 , Section 3.1.2 Partner Categories.  As of 17 February 2022, this is now amended to read.

Within EIT Urban Mobility, cities are our driving force and enabler of faster innovation adoption. To harness the wider city innovation capacity and ensure innovation closer to citizens, we developed a Rapid Application for Transport (RAPTOR) Pilot in 2021. This pilot helped four cities/towns identify niche mobility issues in specific locations with defined parameters and clear success criteria. Once these niche city mobility challenges were defined, a competition was launched for local innovators, teams and startups to propose any solution as long as the original issue and outcomes were addressed. This provided space for lateral thinking beyond our own networks.

Each city, supported by technical and business advisors, selected the most promising solution to receive a prize, in-kind and cash, to advance the proposal to a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to be tested in the city within four months of award. For the Innovation programme of EIT Urban Mobility, agile, entrepreneurial innovation based on problem/challenges with rapid development timelines closer to citizens and in a named location has the potential to become a powerful tool in our innovation agenda.

With this RAPTOR call, the EIT Urban Mobility will select three city partnerships from around Europe to replicate the initial pilot programme.

EIT Urban Mobility Core Partner or an Affiliated Entity of a Core Partner are eligible to apply along with 1 to 2 consortia partner(s) with experience leading or past involvement in managing accelerator programmes and/or venture builders.

Details of the RAPTOR Call:

  • Call opening: 13 December 2021
  • Call closing: 25 February 2022
  • Eligibility and admissibility check: End of February 2022
  • Evaluation of proposals by external experts: End of March 2022
  • Panel hearing: End of March 2022

Costs and benefits of the sustainable urban mobility transition in Europe

We are happy to release the fifth report of our Urban Mobility Next series, which explores the costs and benefits of the sustainable mobility transition in European cities. The analysis focuses on 779 EU-27 cities of more than 50,000 inhabitants based on 12 city prototypes. The model used in the report covers small, medium, and large cities in Eastern, Northern, Central/ Western Europe, and Southern Europe.

We have modelled three different transition scenarios to reflect possible pathways for cities to address the European Green Deal objectives for the transport sector of -55% CO2 emissions by 2030 and -90% CO2 emissions by 2050 compared to 1990 levels. These pathways are composed of a set of 29 different policy measures (e.g. car and bike sharing, cycling infrastructure, metro and bus lanes, etc.) grouped into three main scenarios:

  • “Promote and Regulate”: this transition pathway assumes the promotion and regulation of 19 sustainable mobility options;
  • “Plan and Build”: this transition pathway focuses on 14 infrastructure building and technology related actions;
  • “Mixed”: this transition pathway is a mix of the two above-mentioned approaches, with 23 measures related to both technological innovations and behavioural change.

Read our study

For the preparation of this study, we have applied this model to the cities of Barcelona, Copenhagen, Eindhoven, Munich, and Prague based on a combination of publicly available indicators and assumptions.

Simulations:

For a tailored evaluation based on your specific city data, please contact us at factory@eiturbanmobility.eu

TRT Trasporti e Territorio, has carried out this study using the MOMOS (Sustainable MObility Model) tool. MOMOS is a quantitative tool which allows to simulate the impacts of different mobility transition pathways on a range of indicators, including costs and environmental benefits, for different types of cities.

Our training “The Digital Revolution at the Service of Territorial Mobility” designed with Citec is open for registration!

Urban Mobility is in a constant state of evolution, forever changed by the technology of its time. Technological innovations, Big Data, MaaS or social upheavals, the future of mobility will be multi-form and very different from what we know. The challenge of our time is to understand and prepare ourselves to face these changes, integrating the strategies of planning the mobility of the territories in order to make them increasingly interconnected. The main question is how to reconcile the timing of public decision-making processes – such as infrastructure construction – with the speed of changes and new technological mobility solutions.

To help mobility professionals addressing the challenges of tomorrow’s mobility, EIT Urban Mobility Academy developed the training: “The Digital Revolution at the Service of Territorial Mobility” in partnership with Citec.
