Program Challenges


Active Mobility

The challenge is managing active mobility as a regular physical activity used as a means of transportation. This challenge includes walking, cycling, pedal-assisted e-bikes, kick- scooter, skateboards if it is focused on active modes. It does not include walking, cycling for recreational purposes.

  • Create innovative solutions to make infrastructure more appealing to active users.
  • Demonstration of intermodal solutions for active users to public transport.
  • Dynamic wayfinding solutions in order to make the infrastructure understandable and accessible

Future Mobility

The challenge is to focus on developing innovative services and disruptive technologies that will transform how we live, work, and move. Artificial intelligence, blockchain, 5G, and the Internet of Things (IOT) are among the digitalisation technologies that will shape all sectors and fields. These cutting-edge technologies enable the design and implementation of new services such as mobility as a service (MaaS), integrating micro- mobility services and active mobility with public transportation, autonomous driving, and urban air mobility.

  • Contribute to the integration of city services by helping cities implementing their own policies
  • Business model for the new service is tested and implemented.
  • Potential for replication and scaling in other European contexts.
  • Better mobility services for citizens, increased accessibility, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and more efficient use of urban space

Sustainable City Logistics

The challenge is to focus on freight transport, which includes the transportation of goods ranging from parcel delivery to the delivery of building materials to construction sites, as well as domestic and commercial garbage disposal.

  • Improving urban logistics operations through logistical, future vehicle design, urban air logistics, behavioral, and technology improvements.
  • The solution should be low-carbon, easily accessible, safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly.
  • Healthier, safer environments, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and less local air and noise pollution all contribute to an improvement in citizens’ overall quality of life.

Mobility & Energy

This challenge aims to develop technologies for reducing carbon emissions from transportation, improving public charging solutions and infrastructure, decarbonizing public transportation, developing low-emission last-mile delivery solutions, enhancing battery lifecycle management in urban environments, optimising micromobility solutions, and accelerating the deployment of green hydrogen and other alternative low-emission fuels.

  • Increase the use of cleaner-burning cars.
  • Reduction in carbon emissions
  • Improved quality of life in cities
  • Better utilisation of urban spaces
