Join us on making mobility a better thing!

What is The Mobility Hub?

The Mobility Hub is an innovation hub for students who want to make a difference. It is a center for co-creation, enabling people from diverse backgrounds to come together and exchange, develop innovative inclusive mobility solutions and foster stronger links between the industry, academia, and external parties. 

Who are we looking for?

Digital tools are your thing? You are a solution-oriented pioneer who is seeking to disrupt the status-quo by finding innovative solutions? You want to make a positive impact in mobility for society and the environment? We are looking for 30 students with various backgrounds who seek to expand their horizon and tackle mobility and socioeconomic topics. 

Why should you Tackle the Dark Side of Mobility?

Today a multitude of mobility solutions with regards to public transport, cars or scooters, are available to book on-demand, at any time and any place. However, not everyone can partake in such digital services. Socially and economically disadvantaged people as well as the elderly, who are not familiar with online bookings, often cannot benefit from Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS). You can make a change and make mobility more inclusive!

How can you Tackle the Dark Side of Mobility?

It starts with your idea! Along with like-minded participants, you will turn what's in your heads into tangible solutions. Mobility experts and trend setters will provide you with the insights you need to form your decisions. Coaches will give you tools and teach you agile methodologies to brainstorm ideas. At the end, you will pitch in front of mobility experts to challenge and rethink mobility. So what are you waiting for? Apply Now!
