The Mobility Goes International  - Action! blog

- Read all about what we do in the project and other interesting findings we make

Mobility Goes International is a European Strategic Cluster Partnerships for Going International (ESCP-4i) due to the fact that it aims to develop and implement joint internationalisation strategies to support SME internationalisation towards third countries.

The project aims to contribute to develop common actions (i.e. business missions, cooperation agreements, gateway services, export consortia, etc.) strengthening European SMEs access to specific third markets and initiating a long-term cooperation agenda with strategic partners in third countries.

You can meet us at the next European Cluster Matchmaking Event in Brussels 20-23 February 2018.

The 1st of January was the official start of our exicution part of Mobility Goes International, the Action part. 

We have now started to make the results of our pre-study to reality by benchmarking events in North America and South East Asia, reconnecting with our partners in the areas and slowly getting the smart mobility companies reintroduced to the project. 

In January the project team (pictured) kicked off the project by putting the plans and next steps on paper.  

Look out for a new homepage and invitations to your local partners kick-off events where we tell you about the coming delegation trips and how you can get involved!

MobiGoIn launches future mobility towards extra-European markets
The first phase of MobiGoIn (Mobility Goes International) project finished with a network of more than a thousand companies. In 2018 the internationalisation services will be activated for the markets of China, Malaysia, Singapore, Canada and USA.
 
On May 24, 2017, the international conference Mobility Goes International took place in Turin, Italy. Participants included European companies and clusters from Italy, France, Germany and Sweden. The event marked the end of the European project MobiGoIn, illustrating the developed internationalisation strategy and providing networking opportunities for European companies and innovation actors. Many smart mobility solutions were presented during the pitch session and B2B meetings were held afterwards. Presentations and videos are available here.
 
The results
MobiGoIn, a project co-funded by the COSME Programme of the European Union, developed an internationalisation strategy aimed at supporting smart mobility SMEs and start-ups in their internationalisation processes beyond Europe. The countries identified as geographical targets are: Canada, China, Malaysia, Singapore and the United States of America; whilst the priority target markets are Automotive – including connected cars, autonomous vehicles, low emission vehicles, on-board solutions – and Smart Cities – info-mobility; intermodal, collaborative and cooperative solutions; traffic control, parking & ticketing, last-mile logistics, etc.
 
The project also identified key actors in the target countries interested in becoming potential partners that support the European SMEs in entering the chosen target markets.
 
The structured services and activities, aimed at supporting the internationalisation of European SMEs and start-ups, foresee companies joining in technological European value chains, which allow to be more competitive when entering new markets; training and mentoring programmes to prepare the companies; and international missions and events aimed at generating technologic and commercial partnerships between European and foreign companies and interested actors.

Networking opportunities
The event also provided the opportunity for companies to start sharing their interests and ideas and assessing potential collaborations with each other. During the pitch session, 12 European companies (SMEs and start-ups) presented their innovative solutions within the smart mobility field: parking apps, travel-sharing, automotive architectures, etc. While afterwards, during the business networking moment, 40 B2B meetings took place, allowing companies, clusters and other innovation actors from MobiGoIn Network to talk for about 30 minutes and get a deeper knowledge of how could they collaborate.

Next step: MobiGoIn-Action!
Mobility Goes International - in Action (MobiGoIn-Action) was presented to the COSME call for proposals aimed at co-fund the test and implementation of the activities and services planed within MobiGoIn Internationalisation Strategy. If the proposal is approved, starting on January 2018, the European SMEs and start-ups interested in approaching the markets of Canada, USA, China, Singapore and Malaysia will have the opportunity of taking part of MobiGoIn acceleration and internationalisation activities.
 
Meanwhile, a seminar about the opportunities of doing business in Malaysia and South-East Asia will take place the 3rd of July in Turin, Italy. It is jointly organised by Torino Wireless and MobiGoIn’s Strategic Partner EUMCCI EU-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce and Industry. SAVE THE DATE!!

150 people move to Austin everyday, so there is no wonder that the city has huge challanges to get the mobility in the city working smoothly. 

By taking part in the us governments Department of Transportation in 2016 Smart City Challenge - they wanted to look in to how to make the public transportation throughout the city better and how to connect the East-parts to the West as the interstate as divided the city. 

Since many years there is a strong bike lobby in the city and pedicabs are a common site downtown. This has led to better bike lanes and also the right for bikes to go in the full (car) lanes where/when necessary. 

In the start-up facilities Capital Factory you can find quite a few companies that works with mobility solutions at the Mobility X – transport tech facility, there you can find interesting companies like Texas Guadaloop that’s making a zero gravity hyper loop 750 mph with air levitation instead of magnetics. NuPark.com that makes a mobile license plate recognition camera, OtterLogic where you can schedule and track your shipping B2B without a middle man and Riskpulse an Predictive analytics for transportation tool to name a few.

Let's hope that we can make Mobility X a partner for our project!

While Media Evolution was visiting SXSW in Austin, Texas - they took the oppertunity to listen to some great talks about smart mobility and transportation. 

At this years SXSW there was a lot of focus on automatisation of cars, how the AI in the cars will work in the future and the very elllaborate maps that will be cruzial for the cars to be able to detect everything that needs to be calculated while driving a car without any human eyes. 

As the automatisation of the car while change the way we live, there is also a different economy that can be emerging. You can be part of a car pool and share your ride whit others. People who do not been mobile before due to illness or just not haveing a drivers license can enjoy an more mobile life. The Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Division Dr. Dieter Zetsche and CEO of HERE Edzard Overbeek had a interesting conversation about how the bigger car manufacurers need to take all this account while working on their future strategies.
