Cluster Mobilities Research

Mobility and transport form the core thematic cluster of the chair for methodological questions about technology and participation, transformation and knowledge. Exemplified by transport and mobility we explore infrastructures in their social und economic context. Among the key sectors of energy consumption, transport is globally the fastest growing sector. Thus, the energy transformation and – more generally – the sustainable development of the modern world is crucially depending on a “transport transformation”. In this vein, the aim must be a transformation towards a mobility, which is sustainable and independent of growing scarcity of resources. Within the mobility research cluster we explore how similar challenges can be and have been defined and solved differently by conducting internationally comparable case studies about the history and future of mobility and transport. Our theoretical as well as application-oriented projects search for new solutions regarding the satisfaction and the facilitation of growing demands for an increased, safe and just mobility. Therefore, we use public participation methods, scenario processes, “Leitbild” development as well as constellation analysis and historical comparisons.
