EIT Urban Mobility Master School

The EIT Urban Mobility Master School is this year opening its doors for the first time, offering a unique master degree experience to students with an enthusiasm for transport studies, an interest in creating livable urban spaces, and a drive to apply entrepreneurial and innovation skills to achieve that. If you know of any students that fit that description, then please forward the information below to them. EIT, the European Institute of Innovation Technology, is an initiative of the European Commission to support knowledge-triangle activities in thematic areas, most recently Urban Mobility.

Briefly, here are a few details. In this first year for Autumn 2020, we are offering two thematic programmes with the following participating universities:

Some other features of both programmes are:

  • Fully 25% of the programme content is focused on innovation and entrepreneurship skills, which we plan to be certified with the EIT Label from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology
  • Mobility between two universities in two different European countries, leading to two master degrees
  • A summer school with a comparative examination of an urban mobility challenge in two nearby cities
  • A one-month embedded internship at a company or organization
  • A generous scholarship package for highly-qualified applicants

We are taking applications in two rounds: first round by 3rd February 2020, and second round by 17th April 2020. Students coming from outside of Europe are strongly encouraged to apply by the first date, otherwise there may be too little time to obtain the required visa. Details on how to apply can be found here.
