The EIT Urban Mobility Competence Hub serves a wide variety of organizations with urban mobility transformation related education and training. The primary two groups of learners are expected in the mobility industry and city staff working with urban mobility. It also wishes to support citizens who are currently out of a job, and that need to reskill/upskill so they can enter/re-enter the urban-mobility market. This can be done either by helping them acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to qualify for new urban-mobility related jobs, or aiding them to create their own urban mobility project/company. The challenge here is to develop programmes that are in sync with present/future market needs and that are adapted to people (or groups of people) with very different professional backgrounds.
State your view regarding the reskill/upskill need decribed above. Is there a significant and general need, not met today and that requires our attention? Why is this not met today?
We should here focus on trying to understand the nature of the need, 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.
