We are happy to announce that the project IMES' kickoff meeting was well received and is going forward in Hann. Münden.


First concepts and ideas were presented to the public by Ilja Nastjuk (University of Göttingen) and Henning Stahlmann (Zweckverband Verkehrsverbund Südniedersachsen) on the 19th January 2016. Other Attendees, mostly citizens of the pertaining areas of the project, confirmed the necessity of more detailed information about local mobility needs. A brief feedback session already revealed a lot of solvable problems of the current situation of public transportation.
Citizens are asked to participate in the following process in order to be able to examine the situation the best way possible. The project will focus first on three exemplary areas: Hann. Münden, Uslar and Osterode. Read more under the following links (German): HNA article and Göttinger Tageblatt.
The IMES project deals with developing innovative mobility concepts for rural areas, focusing on two levels of integration: First, the general knowledge developed thus far through studies and pilot projects will be summarized and mapped in a uniform manner. Second, the knowledge derived will be made applicable for concrete demands in rural areas by providing suitable solutions in terms of user-oriented, integrative, sustainable, and actionable mobility concepts.
