Main Goal: Speeding up the deployment of urban mobility solutions
To bridge the gap between supply and demand and speed up the deployment of market ready solutions, the JIIP-TEUC consortium runs a support office in the period June 2017-December 2018. The focus is on the deployment of new mobility services and electromobility.
The support office will assess the business case and investment readiness of a project, identify investment opportunities and connect the project team with investors and other enablers.
Hands-on support is provided in two ways:
- Organisation of and participation in collective events focused on matchmaking and brokerage (access to market, technology and funding).
- Tailored support for up to 20 projects looking to deploy (or scale/replicate) urban mobility solutions. These can be companies who are looking to introduce their service in other sectors/countries or pubic authorities looking to implement a solution in their city/region. Condition for tailored support is the presence of a clear project plan.
Over the summer period of 2017 activities were focused on awareness raising by organising and participating in events. Own events were the Clean Bus deployment webinar on 20 September and CapitalFest smart urban mobility break-out session on 27 September. The support office participated in the EIP SCC session at CIVITAS on 28 September, SUM AC meeting on 11 October and EIP-SCC General Assembly on 12 October 2017. Further events will be announced on the EIP SCC website.
