The MUBIL Mobility Awards will select two technological projects that can change the mobility of the future. MUBIL, the commitment to make Gipuzkoa and the Basque Country an international benchmark for new mobility, rewards these two initiatives with a total of 35,000 euros and a one-year stay in an ideal technological ecosystem to develop them.

The MUBIL Mobility Awards are open to proposals in different areas, such as electric mobility, connected mobility, autonomous mobility, shared mobility and related infrastructures. The two winning projects get access to the MUBIL ecosystem.

Companies of international standing and great recognition in the field of mobility and energy collaborate with the MUBIL Mobility Awards, including CAF, Irizar e-mobility, Petronor and Iberdrola. The Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa is the main promoter of this center for smart and sustainable mobility, which is also supported by BIC Gipuzkoa, the Basque Energy Agency, the Chamber of Commerce of Gipuzkoa, Indar, IBIL, the EITs Innoenergy and Urban Mobility, the Basque Country Energy Cluster and the Basque Mobility and logistics cluster.

The deadline for registering projects is 29th of July 2021. The winners will be announced in the grand finale on September 20th after defending their proposals before a panel of experts.
