The EIT Urban Mobility aims to offer a new kind of [master] education to participants. This entails not only complementing with innovation and entrepreneurship skills, but also renewing the technical curriculum by more fully integrating different traditional disciplines, placing greater emphasis on human-centred mobility, and stimulating the learner to actively develop their own competencies. This is an ambitious undertaking that requires creating communities of practice across our partner universities and supporting non-academic partners and adapting the latest pedagogical practices for the subject area of urban mobility. This is made especially challenging as we face a prolonged period with COVID-19 restrictions, where at least some elements of distance learning are unavoidable.
