In research we

  • analyse the interactions between mobility behaviour, transport system, society, economy, space and the environment;
  • collect data and create methodological foundations and tools for sustainable transport planning and sustainable mobility solutions;
  • actively contribute to the dissemination of knowledge through cooperation with partners from practice and administration and through community-oriented events;
  • work with utmost diligence and integrity to achieve evidence-based results of highest quality.

The Austrian Transport Model is the key instrument for national transport planning, traffic forecasts and a wide range of academic, political and planning activities related to transport infrastructure. The Austrian Transport Model will be recreated from 2019. VMÖ Lot 2 is about the collection and processing of data in passenger transport. It involves the conduction of an Austria-wide mobility survey using a combined revealed and stated preference survey procedure.

The Austrian Transport Model is essential for national transport planning and forecasts as well as basis for scientific works and political decision making. Starting in 2019, an updated version is planned. Task 4 is dealing with the development of an appropriate data collection methodology (combining revealed and stated preference surveys) to collect and evaluate freight transport data as input for the new transport model.

Increasing Active Mobility, including walking, cycling and use of public transport, results in environmental, economic and social benefits. What’s more, health benefits arise from the boost of physical activity through walking and cycling as a daily routine without any sports ambitions. The Austrian Health Fund (FGOE) has determined “Active Moblity” as a priority to be funded in the project call “Active Mobility – Healthy Travelling 2019-2022” for the settings school, company and municipality. The objectives of this current project are the guidance, support and implementation of this call. The research focus is on the evaluation of measures and projects to promote Active Mobility within the three settings. Which kinds of measures result in a long-term behaviour change (in terms of switching from car use to walking or cycling) and which indicators describe these effects best? Factors of success for an efficient implementation and supportive framework conditions should be figured out to guarantee a sustainable establishment of promising Active Mobility measures. An evaluation concept is worked out to gather learning experiences and share them among the research community as well as among the three settings.
