Apply now to the Sustainable Cities Climate Impact Challenge!

Organised by EIT Climate-KIC and EIT Digital and sponsored by FedEx, European cities are invited to apply for the Sustainable Cities Climate Impact Challenge. Do not miss this unique opportunity to support your city's uptake of sustainable urban mobility!

EIT Climate-KIC and EIT Digital are running a sustainable urban mobility call for interested European cities. Sponsored by FedEx, cities are urged to apply to the Sustainable Cities Climate Impact Challenge to identify impactful and innovative projects which seek to decarbonise transport in cities and accelerate the take-up of active, shared, collective and/or electric mobility.

The Climate Impact Challenge aims to work with two or three cities. Projects will be selected based on the potential for impact, learning, and replicability in other cities.

Cities in the EU Member States, Horizon Europe Associated Countries, the UK and Switzerland (with a population of at least 25,000) are eligible to apply. Each city challenge selected will be granted between USD 50,000 and USD 75,000.

Examples of projects that could be considered for support include but are not limited to:

  • Low-traffic neighbourhoods;
  • Walking and cycling projects;
  • Green infrastructure and parklets;
  • Mobility hubs;
  • Behaviour change tools;
  • Apps and journey planners;
  • Data collection, analysis, monitoring and evaluation tools.

How to apply

To apply, cities are invited to submit a two-page (A4, pdf, maximum 1,000 words) project proposal describing the sustainable mobility challenge that they would like to tackle

The deadline for submission of proposals is Sunday, 13 November 2022 at 23.00 CET.
