Smart Mobility Challenge

Do you have the solutions for Future Mobility needs? This is your chance to present your international mobility solution to the biggest global corporations, who are leading the transformation to Mobility. Let's accelerate innovation together!
Owning Partner


The Smart Mobility Challenge is an initiative of the Smart Mobility Institute, in joint collaboration with it's core members Accenture, Astrazeneca, Danone, Microsoft, Nokia and Philips, built with an aim of accelerating supply and demand for true mobility solutions.  

Together, we have identified common requirements of mobility (which can be found in the application form in the resources tab), that provide a complete overview of MaaS solutions that would support corporations in a mobility strategy that is fit for the future.   Of course, not all these solutions will be available today under one roof, but we want to use this opportunity to challenge the mobility suppliers and provide them with an overview of what their customers are looking for.

Therefore we are calling upon the mobility supplier community to participate in the Smart Mobility Challenge!

What are we looking for?

We are looking for companies working on innovative solutions to reshape the mobility offering of corporations in full support of their employees' transportation and commuting needs.  As mentioned, the mobility solution that you would be willing to present does not have to entail all requirements for a full MaaS solution.  If your innovation can contribute to the further development of MaaS, we are more than happy to receive your application!

What can you expect?

Finalists of this challenge will have the opportunity to present their offering in front of a jury of experts, during the Smart Mobility Challenge Pitches and the winner will get the opportunity to detail their offering in individual meetings with the different corporate challenge owners.  This with the objective to explore opportunities for further collaboration, including possible pilot projects.  Please bear in mind that this is not a guaranteed offer to contract.

Besides this, the finalists and winners will be announced via the Smart Mobility channels of Nexus Communication and the winner will also be profiled in a dedicated feature article on  And last but not least, the winner will be inaugurated as the first Smart Mobility Challenge laureate at the Fleet Europe Summit on the 17th and 18th of November!

Who can create a challenge?

  • If you want to publish a challenge on the Open Ecosystem Network and get support from the community to solve your problems, you first need to be registered on the platform. Then you need to contact the Open Ecosystem Network administrator in the Community section. They will create the challenge for you. Search for “admin” in the Community section, and click on “Nokia Admin” to contact and ask for your challenge to be created.


How do I submit an answer/proposal?

  • To contribute to a challenge, first open the challenge page, and then click on the "start proposal" button on the right-hand-side. A new page will appear with different text fields to fill in and attachments to include. You can also link to an existing project you have previously created on the platform. Once you have finished, click on submit.
  • If you save as draft, your submission will not be completed and will not be submitted to the challenge owner.


What happens once I submit?

  • Once you have submitted your proposal, your ‘Challenge Submission Form’ becomes accessible by the creator or the challenge, who can see and edit your proposal. Through the challenge page, only the owner of the challenge can see the different proposals submitted against his/her challenge. It is up to the challenge owner to inform participants about decisions and potential next steps.
  • To note, when you save a submission as draft, it is not submitted to the challenge owner.


Who can see my proposal?

  • The owner of the challenge, the submission review committee, and the Open Ecosystem Network Administrator team are the only ones who can see your proposed ideas and solutions to the challenge.


What happens if my proposal is successful?

  • For each challenge, submission review and selection process is different and the responsibility of the challenge owner. If your project is selected, the owner of the challenge will come back to you with further guidance on the next steps.


What happens if it is unsuccessful?

  • For each challenge, submission review and selection process is different and the responsibility of the challenge owner. If your project is not shortlisted, the owner of the challenge will inform you using the messaging features of Open Ecosystem Network. Your proposed ideas will then be removed/deleted from challenge submissions.
