The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) has launched a competition for new Innovation Communities in the area of urban mobility () The winners will join Europe’s largest innovation community to bring solutions to European citizens. The competition is open until July 2018 and the winning partnerships will be announced in December 2018. The proposals should be submitted by partners from business, higher education and research institutions to tackle societal challenges by developing innovative products and services. ‘An EIT Innovation Community is a unique long-term partnership with a potential budget of up to €400 million for the first seven years of its operations. Its set-up must be born from a strong desire to do things differently, with like-minded people and organisations ready to experiment and operate at the boundaries of innovation to create true innovation ecosystems with high interconnectivity,’ said Peter Olesen, Chairman of the EIT Governing Board.
