Citython 2022 is an international event focused on urban challenges which the participating teams work on, implementing their ideas from inception to presentable project or prototype in 54 hours. This year the focus is on urban mobility, where a group of experts and students in the fields of urban issues, business, UX, marketing and big data work together to create innovative solutions for our cities. During the weekend, the teams will be accompanied by experienced mentors and speakers. The event ends with 5-minute presentations from the teams, Q&A and evaluation by a panel of judges who will select the three winning teams


The aim of the Citython is to analyse mobility challenges that face our cities and create possible solutions. Multidisciplinary teams consisting of students and professionals from different fields and specialisations compete to offer the city and its inhabitants innovative solutions to the identified challenges and needs.

The Citython’s ambition is to create a reference event in Europe, which will succeed in attracting the best talents, including students of the EIT Urban Mobility academic programmes, and create the most innovative solutions along with suppliers and/or commercial partners.


We are a consortia formed by KAJO, CERTH, PowerHUB, tech. universities in Žilina (SK), Košice (SK), Vitoria-Gasteiz, CARNET (Future Mobility Research Hub),  working together in partnership with EIT Urban Mobility over the organization and execution of the event with our expertise as on previous hackathons.

EIT Urban Mobility  brings together cities, universities, research centres, commercial partners and companies to work on urban mobility innovations and make our cities much more liveable and comfortable for their citizens, for us, our children and for our friends in accordance to maintain our planet healthy.


Young professionals search for innovative and creative solutions that can be applied in the participating cities as new software, a prototype, a tool, a physical solution, or a concept.
