Rapid Applications for Transport Open Call – Don’t miss this opportunity! Choose your challenge by 6 May

EIT Urban Mobility reaffirmed its commitment to city-driven innovation with the announcement of the Rapid Application for Transport (RAPTOR) programme. Recognizing cities as vital catalysts for innovation adoption, RAPTOR aims to accelerate the implementation of cutting-edge solutions in urban mobility.

Learn more about the RAPTOR Project

Under this initiative, cities are empowered to select promising solutions with the support of technical and business advisors. These chosen solutions receive financial backing to be developed and tested within the city within a five-month timeline. By prioritizing proximity to citizens and rapid development, RAPTOR seeks to address mobility challenges efficiently and effectively.

The 2024 edition of RAPTOR will see 13 cities across Europe implementing pilot projects, potentially tackling a total of 44 mobility challenges in 38 cities over three years. This agile approach complements EIT Urban Mobility's traditional large-scale projects, fostering competition and drawing innovative minds into the community.

With the new edition of the RAPTOR programme in 2024, EIT Urban Mobility will select up to 13 projects from across Europe to develop solutions to niche mobility challenges. Existing documentation and lessons learned from RAPTOR’s previous editions will be key in ensuring an acceleration of innovation in cities, closer to citizens and closer to the innovation’s edge.
