The new EIT Urban Mobility Doctoral Training Network is a collective of universities, academics, and PhD candidates that seeks to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the field of urban mobility based on the knowledge triangle (education, research, and business). The programme provides urban mobility PhD candidates with a platform for exchange on their individual research, and networking opportunities with practitioners and senior researchers. The programme includes a four-to-six months international research placement and an annual forum event.

The Doctoral Training Network offers PhD candidates the unique opportunity to connect with their international counterparts at universities throughout Europe, and to join the sustainable urban mobility revolution while strengthening technical expertise and fostering entrepreneurial and innovative skills. The customisable programme complements your PhD research and makes you part of a community that creates real solutions for more sustainable urban mobility.
