  • promote the professional development of our staff;
  • make decisions in a transparent and participatory way.


Winter seminar for the transport research institutes

Members of the Institute for Transport once again took part in the winter seminar of German-speaking transport research institutes, this time in Bad Gastein. The focus was on the exchange of expertise between doctoral students and professors and on the improvement of discipline-specific English repectively German language skills for non-native speakers. We also tested our applied transport skills during active winter mobility on skis, snowboards, snowshoes and while hiking.

The mobility of the future has long since begun

In the ULTIMOB project, some innovative mobility solutions were realized in four years on the topics of integrated mobility, on-demand transport, multimodal nodes, ride sharing and luggage services in tourism. In summary, the results can be viewed in the video.
