Call for Sustainable Cities Climate Impact Challenge

By Hannah Abson / Updated: 02 Nov 2022

EIT Climate-KIC and EIT Digital are running a Sustainable Cities Climate Impact Challenge for European cities to identify impactful and innovative projects which seek to decarbonise transport in cities and accelerate the take-up of active, shared, collective and/or electric mobility.  The challenge is sponsored by FedEx.

The Climate Impact Challenge aims to work with two or three cities. Projects will be selected based on the potential for impact, learning, and replicability in other cities.

Cities in EU Member States, Horizon Europe associated countries, the UK and Switzerland (with a population of at least 25,000) are eligible to apply. Each city challenge selected will be granted between USD 50,000 and USD 75,000.

Cities are invited to submit a two-page (A4) project proposal.

Examples of projects that could be considered for support include (but are not limited to), the following:

  • Low traffic neighbourhoods
  • Walking and cycling projects
  • Green infrastructure and parklets
  • Mobility hubs
  • Behaviour change tools
  • Apps and journey planners
  • Data collection, analysis, monitoring and evaluation tools 

The deadline for submission of proposals: 13 November 2022 at 23.00 CET.
