Future Mobility - Digital, shared and electric?


The chair of information management is happy to inform you that the Sustainable Mobility Research Group is prominently featured in the current issue of the science magazine from the Georg-August-University. Besides outlining sustainable mobility in the era of digitalization, the article highlights the accomplishments of the Sustainable Mobility Research Group in its research projects "e-Mobilität vorleben" und "eRadschnellwege - Umstiege erleichtern". One of those achievements was to develop and prototypically implement electrified mobility concepts and underlying business models based on insights and evaluations of potential users. Consequently, the participatory approach helped to ensure a sustainable impact in the region on the acceptance and use of alternative mobility concepts.
