CIT UPC has participated in the fourth General Assembly of EIT Urban Mobility, held in Prague on 2–6 September. During the session, the latest activities of the consortium were presented and Monika Bachofner, who had been acting as interim Chief Operating Officer, handed over the position of Chief Operating Officer to Juan Carlos Espada. The KIC management team thanked Monika Bachofner for the valuable work she had done within the framework of KIC Urban Mobility.

In parallel, various specific workshops were organized, including an ideas session in which 160 project ideas were presented for the next call in 2021. CARNET, an initiative with the CIT UPC’s technical coordination, presented eight ideas.

In addition, a meeting of City Club was held, which is a collaborative space for cities that are members of the consortium to share experiences and solutions to new mobility challenges from the perspective of sustainable technology, user behaviour, organisation and policies to implement.

The Factory working group of EIT Urban Mobility met to give European cities solutions to the mobility challenges of the future. The first tool the Factory launched, the Urban Mobility Auditing System (UMAM), helps cities to analyse the performance of their ecosystem of current mobility, to detect potential improvements.
