The urban mobility area is seeing and is expected to continue to see a significant transformation. EIT Urban Mobility’s mission is to facilitate and accelerate this transition towards more sustainable models and a better use of public space. This demands a significant shift in competences and how the area is addressed.
The Competence Hub, our professional lifelong learning school, offers a wide variety of courses to professional. The ambition regarding volumes and revenues is high and the Competence Hub should become financially sustainable within a few years. This demands a working business model as well as a product market fit, being able to meet markets needs and becoming profitable. In addition the Competence Hub offers should mainly meet needs that are not met on the market today.
A critical issue to solve is how to leverage on the assets of existing and new partners, building a financially sustainable operation. There is a need to decrease development, running and marketing costs, as well as increase the profit potential.
Do you agree with the statements above? Is this a significant need that requires our attention? What is the area/s the Competence Hub should focus on to live up to the ambitions stated?
We should here focus on trying to understand the nature of the problem, so please try to avoid discussing concrete solutions, even if it is difficult. Potential solutions will be discussed in the next step of the process.
