Co.mobility 2 starts in September 2021

The 1st innovation ecosystem focusing on mobility

Founded by

Operated by

Our mission is to animate a network of companies sharing a common vision about the future of mobility with the willingness to share knowledge and co-create on specific innovative projects.

Co.mobility

The ecosystem co.mobility has started in April 2020 gathering more than 48 organizations from public, private, startups and universities. Despite Covid-19, we reached the mission of the program: deliver 6 business cases (ideation) and start 4 very promising prototypes. In the meantime, we have also created a strong community of +100 actors of the mobility and a very impactful white paper.

Thanks to the success of this first 1-year program, we would like to prepare “co.mobility 2”. Co.mobility 2 will have a special focus on key challenges of the mobility.

If you are interested by joining “co.mobility 2”, please fill the form bellow to receive all the information.

I hope to meet you soon.
