With the participation1 of Europcar Mobility Group, Groupe Renault, MAIF, Nissan, RCI Bank and Services, Shell and the City of Paris
After a successful Season 1, NUMA is proud to announce the launch of CityMakers Season 2. CityMakers is an Open Innovation program reinventing urban mobility.
The initiative enables public-private partnerships to work towards resolving the key challenges of urban mobility with the support of our partners: Europcar Mobility Group, Groupe Renault, MAIF, Nissan, RCI Bank and Services (involving its startups Karhoo, Marcel and Yuso), Shell and the City of Paris.
The partners identified six challenges to be addressed during Season 2:
Call for applications
The teams are looking for startups, researchers and companies to share their expertise and technologies, working together to develop solutions to the challenges. Applications to contribute to the projects can be made until August 27th, 2018 on citymakers.io. The selected candidates will then join the challenge teams.
7 months to understand the users’ needs and design, prototype and test solutions
For each challenge, the teams will first work to understand users’ constraints, obstacles and needs in regards to mobility in Ile-de-France. Based on this research, they will imagine the solutions which best answer the users’ needs while being economically and technically viable. The final results could be applications, products, services, new business models or other outputs. The teams will prototype and test the solutions to improve them.
The results will be presented to all on January 31th, 2019 during the CityMakers DemoDay. This event concludes Season 2.
