The EIT Urban Mobility Malta RIS Hub is supported by EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union. It has been set up as part of the EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS), the EIT Community’s outreach scheme, introduced in 2014 to make information and expertise from its unique approach available to others. The EIT Urban Mobility Hub in Malta shares good practice and experiences in order to widen participation of Maltese stakeholders across Europe. The Hub in Malta is led by Project Aegle Foundation, the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) and the Valletta Design Cluster (part of the Valletta Cultural Agency), with the aim to nurture sustainable visions for better urban mobility in the Maltese Islands.
The Malta Mobility Ecosystem Map aims at identifying all actors in Malta’s mobility sector, and outlines their role in a clear and easily understandable manner which is accessible to all. In particular, persons who would not have access to such information without this initiative are set to benefit from a heightened knowledge of mobility in Malta.
Classified in groups, namely, Providers, Enablers, and of course, Users, Malta’s movers and shakers in the mobility sector are all mapped out in a simple infographic which provides essential, at-a-glance information.
While the Mobility Ecosystem Map remains a work in progress due to the ever-changing mobility landscape, the current version was made possible through a mapping workshop, moderated by members of the EIT Urban Mobility Malta RIS Hub, which brought together representatives from Transport Malta, the Debono Group, Malta Public Transport, the University of Malta, MCAST, the Foundation for Transport and GreenRoads Malta. The map was created by I+A design studio.
