A critical mission of EIT is to increase the innovation capacity and capability within Europe. And for EIT Urban Mobility we do this within the area of urban mobility. The EIT Urban Mobility Academy Master School and Doctoral Training Network education has this focus. However this is less pronounced regarding the Competence Hub our lifelong learning professional school. Innovation is a requirement for a successful transformation. This calls for that innovation should be offered on a wider scale to cities and the industry, and maybe especially systemic innovation, given the nature of the challenges. With successful education and training within these areas networks cross areas may be built and new ideas may be implemented driving change at a faster pace.
Do you agree with the statements above? How significant is this need? Why is not innovation happening to the extent required in your organization today?
We should here focus on trying to understand the nature of the problem, so please try to avoid to discussing concrete solutions, even if it is difficult. Potential solutions will be discussed in the next step of the process.
