Mobility

FIA Smart Cities Global Start-Up Contest

The dimension of technological know-how of the FIA Smart Cities initiative is featured through the FIA Smart Cities Global Startup Contest where a selection of visionary entrepreneurs present their ideas on scaling innovations to make cities more liveable and drive the urban mobility revolution.

For its third season, the contest is powered by Mass Challenge Switzerland. One day before each of the FIA Smart Cities Forum, a jury of mobility experts will select the most promising start-ups that will then have the opportunity to pitch their ideas during the Forum, and engage and interact with the FIA’s network of mobility experts, partners and representatives of leading companies in the transport area.

Innovative ideas and business topics supported by the contest focus on four key areas of mobility; ‘Embedded Autonomous Technology’, ‘New Autonomous Mobility Services’, ‘Mobility as a Service’ and ‘Government-technology’.
