EIT Urban Mobility

This online course is supported by the EIT Urban Mobility’s Competence Hub. EIT Urban Mobility is an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) that has been working since January 2019 to encourage positive changes in the way people move around cities in order to make them more sustainable and liveable places.

Within EIT Urban Mobility’s Academy, the Competence Hub provides training programmes and content for professionals working in the field of urban mobility. We leverage the expertise of EIT Urban Mobility’s unique network of 85+ European companies, research institutions, universities and cities, to identify trends and new technologies, highlight key issues and controversies, as well as to create innovative and useful training programmes. By helping urban mobility professionals around Europe acquiring the right knowledge and developing the relevant skills, we will close the urban mobility knowledge gap and make our cities more resilient and viable.
