EIT Urban Mobility Scale-ups

Meet the International Road Federation

The EIT Urban Mobility Business Creation programme develops a start-up friendly environment with the ultimate aim of boosting the competitiveness of Europe’s mobility industry.

The present networking event will give the opportunity to participants of the EIT Urban Mobility Scale-up Hub and GoGlobal programmes to pitch to, and interact with a wide network of stakeholders – corporates, cities, potential investors, partners, or customers – that are partners of the International Road Federation (IRF), during and after the event.


After the event, and until Dec 22nd, there will be the possibility for IRF members having attended the meeting (or having viewed the recorded pitches afterwards, which will be made available to interested IRF members on demand) to book bilateral meetings with the start-ups of their interest. CARNET will moderate and generate a comprehensive report of the event, including a portfolio of participant startups, and facilitate matchmaking.
