EIT Urban Mobility: Boost I&E 2.0

Project aim and scope

The project aims to design and develop a new model for an I&E challenge-driven academic activity for the EIT Urban Mobility Master Program with a twofold objective:

  • Training our graduates with the most suitable skills to be entrepreneurs and to improve the innovation in the institutions and companies of the mobility sector.
  • Becoming a source of disruptive solutions to challenges stated by these institutions, cities and companies through I&E projects developed in Master courses.

The scope of this project is to experience and recommend this new model for an I&E challenge-driven academic activity for the Master School. Collaboration and sharing best practices among institutions aims to develop student’s skills with an international perspective and knowledge-triangle exposure.
