Ford Fund Mobility Challenge

Ford Fund is Ford’s non-profit corporate foundation that leads and drives community investment and employee volunteer-related activities.

The aim is to make people’s lives better in three key areas: Education, Sustainable Communities, Safe and Smart Mobility

 

Ford Fund Mobility challenge

On the Ford Fund mobility challenge, student teams work together to research, develop and prototype an urban mobility solution concept to solve a mobility challenge of today. The challenge enables students to drive human progress in their communities.

Each application is scored and reviewed by a jury. Three applications will be selected to receive investment of £5,000, to support the initial stages of their product implementation, with the overall winning team receiving a further £7,500.

We want to hear proposals that help to provide sustainable urban solutions for future cities. The challenges cities face are well known: congestion, poor air quality, spatial constraints, and inconsistent access to essential services. We’re looking for solutions that will make cities more attractive and healthier places to live, work and play.

 

STEM

Volunteering is an integral part of our business. We encourage our employees to participate in programs that strengthen the communities in which we operate.

Some examples where Ford Mobility team members have been involved is with our HereEast neighbours, the Stemettes, in supporting the Monster Confidence event. This event supports local young people in gaining experience in applying and interviewing for technology roles.

On top of this, some of the coding team have been providing coding lessons.
