Imagine2030 Mobility Accelerator 2021
Imagine the world in 2030 and your startup has played an essential role in achieving the United Nations global goals for social, economic and environmental sustainability.
The Imagine2030 Mobility Accelerator will get you there!
The accelerator aims to support you to execute your idea and enable a system change for sustainable mobility.
The world is becoming increasingly urbanized. In 2030 more than 60% of the world population will live in cities. Cities that account for 70% of global carbon emissions and over 60% of resource use.
A majority of carbon emissions are affected by urban mobility, which also causes noise and congestion in our urban lives.
This calls for a substantial change and the program supports your change-making solution for sustainable mobility.
Develop solutions to drive a system change for sustainable mobility. Create technologies to increase efficiency, transportation infrastructure and traffic management, and renewable fuels.
Drive innovation for alternative technologies or make an impact with one of all the other groundbreaking ideas!
