Welcome to the NECTAR website

New International Master School on Urban Mobility, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The EIT Urban Mobility Master School is opening its doors for the first time, offering a unique master degree experience to students with an enthusiasm for transport studies, an interest in creating livable urban spaces, and a drive to apply entrepreneurial and innovation skills to achieve that. If you know of any students that fit that description, then please forward the information below to them.

Briefly, here are a few details. In this first year for Autumn 2020, we are offering two thematic programmes with the following participating universities:
Future Mobility Markets and Services: UPC Barcelona, BME Budapest
Sustainable Urban Mobility Transitions: TU Eindhoven, Aalto University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and UPC Barcelona

Some other features of both programmes are:
Fully 25% of the programme content is focused on innovation and entrepreneurship skills, which we plan to be certified with the EIT Label from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology
Mobility between two universities in two different European countries, leading to two master degrees
A summer school with a comparative examination of an urban mobility challenge in two nearby cities
A one-month embedded internship at a company or organization
A generous scholarship package for highly-qualified applicants

We are taking applications in two rounds: first round by 3rd February 2020, and second round by 17th April 2020. Students coming from outside of Europe are strongly encouraged to apply by the first date, otherwise there may be too little time to obtain the required visa. Details on how to apply can be found here.
