Transportation has always been a vital aspect of human life. The current quest to create new, more efficient modes of transport also means continuing to improve existing means to reduce costs and increase their safety for people and the environment. Transport is also a fundamental pillar of the European economy. The European commercial road transport sector employs around 11 million people directly, i.e. 5% of all jobs in the EU. The Mobility Startup Europe Awards aim to encourage governments and companies to engage with current issues affecting mobility and transport for the benefit of the economy, society and the environment.
To reward startups that develop innovative solutions to reduce costs, achieve a zero-emission transport transition and the digitization of transport and help redefine mobility legislation to unify the European framework.
