Access Your Next Client City: Empowering Urban Mobility Innovators with TICER
The world of urban mobility is on the cusp of a transformative revolution. Innovators in this sector hold immense potential to shape the way we navigate our cities and embrace sustainable transportation options. However, to fulfil their market potential, these innovators face numerous challenges, including aligning innovations with city regulations and meeting the needs of citizens. That's where TICER comes in – an innovative educational program designed to empower startups and bridge the gap between entrepreneurial vision and real-world success.
Unlock Your Business Potential with TICER
TICER is not your typical educational program. We are dedicated to revolutionizing the fulfillment of startups' market potential in urban mobility.

Understanding the Ultimate Clients: Citizens
In the realm of urban mobility, the ultimate clients are the citizens themselves. We recognize the critical role cities play in shaping the needs and aspirations of their inhabitants. However, aligning innovative mobility solutions with both city regulations and citizen requirements is no easy feat. TICER steps in as the bridge that connects innovators with the needs and expectations of cities and citizens alike.
Three Key Challenges
Challenge 1 - Sustainable Mobility as an Alternative
How can we foster a culture of sustainable mobility in Szombathely so people become more inclined to embrace eco-friendly transportation options such as buses, bikes, scooters, or walking instead of using a car?
Challenge 2 - Demand-Driven Mobility Design
How can we channel the needs of citizens and urban stakeholders into the mobility-related decision-making process of the city?
Challenge 3 - Data-driven synergies for mobility
As a municipality, how can we use existing and yet-unknown data to - directly and indirectly - encourage the public and economic sectors to improve traffic flow?
