EUROPEAN MOBILITY CHALLENGE

ARE YOU A LEADER OF TOMORROW?

If you did not hesitate to answer “yes”, this is the challenge for you!

ERTICO is organising the European leg of the Global Challenge, together with ITS America and ITS Asia-Pacific.

This competition offers graduate students from European universities the opportunity to solve real-world mobility problems. 

You could be part of the winning team which will fly to Los Angeles to participate to the ITS World Congress in October 2020, and pitch your idea to industry leaders! 

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

  • Create a team of three to five students;
  • Design a sustainable mobility solution for your home or university town, focused on vulnerable road users’ needs while improving mobility and reducing congestion;
  • Have a look at the deadlines’ section below.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Three teams will be selected and a representative from each will be invited to pitch their idea at the ITS European Congress in Lisbon in May 2020. The team with the best pitch will represent Europe at the Global Challenge in Los Angeles, where they will have to solve a second mobility challenge related to the LA 2028 Summer Olympics.

Sounds exciting, right? Then don’t miss this opportunity to network with industry leaders and explore job prospects in the smart mobility sector!
