MUBIL Mobility Awards 2024 edition registration is opened

The fourth edition of the MUBIL Mobility Awards kicks off today, with the period for submitting entries open until 21 June. After the success of its three previous editions, these awards will once again become a benchmark for smart and sustainable mobility, for its contribution to driving new proposals aimed at changing the mobility of the future.
These awards are open to technology-based projects in one of the following categories: electric mobility, connected mobility, autonomous mobility, shared mobility and related infrastructures.

Thirty-six projects took part in the last edition, ten of them international, and the aim this year is to once again have a large number of top-level international projects participating.
One of the objectives of the MUBIL Mobility Awards is attract innovative and interesting initiatives focused on smart and sustainable mobility, offering the winners a space for their technological development at the MUBIL Hub.

The winners will be announced at an event to be held on 24 October. The first and second place winners will share €16,500 in prize money, plus a further €18,500 in funding for the winning projects to be developed in collaboration with agents from the Basque smart and sustainable mobility ecosystem. They will also have the possibility to be part of the MUBIL Hub, a working space for 12 months, as well as obtain exposure and the opportunity to have their own stand at the MUBIL Mobility Expo, a professional meeting point in Southern Europe for the sustainable mobility industry.
MUBIL, which brings together the efforts of public and private agents that promote smart and sustainable mobility initiatives in the Basque Country, was created within the Etorkizuna Eraikiz initiative of the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa and is supported by the Basque Government and the EVE (Basque Energy Agency). Its main lines of action include collaboration between agents, knowledge management, technological infrastructure and entrepreneurship. In addition, MUBIL's definitive headquarters in Donostia-San Sebastián (Gipuzkoa, Spain) will soon be up and running. It will house 10,000m2 of technologically cutting-edge facilities and testing laboratories, in addition to a further 38,000m2 where initiatives by other agents such as CEIT, CIDETEC, TECNALIA, VICOMTECH and the City Science Lab Gipuzkoa project, in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab group, will be set up.

In the third edition, held last year, the first prize went to the Smobery project, which works on smart stations with a global charging and battery exchange solution for light mobility. The second prize went to Hoop Carpool, which proposed a carpooling platform for people who live, work or study nearby.
