    • evaluating and demonstrating job creation in mobility sector, with specific reference to the electrification sector;
    • encouraging young people to choose the education paths which will enable them to apply for these positions
  • electrification sessions at different road transport conferences and symposia in the EU, targeting an audience of professionals, researchers and industry experts of the transport sector
  • the implementation of a web portal designed to raise awareness on e-mobility and on the best education opportunities
  • an interactive ‘Road Show’ visiting regional high schools
  • ‘e-gomotion Challenge’, a competition where student teams propose solutions for a more sustainable mobility
  • ‘e-gomotion Academy’, a web school which provides tutorials for understanding the technology of electric vehicles.

The partner universities are supported by an Advisory Board of ten industry actors and the regional networks of the universities.
