The project´s long-term goal is the development of a user-oriented, residential location based mobility service for urban areas. The aim of the probing project is to support multimodal transport choices already at the place of living. As such, location and resident based mobility services have to be bundled, easy to use and communicated consistently. New models have to be developed in order to interconnect planning, construction and operation of different mobility services with projects on the level of housing and urban districts.
WIFAS – The Assessment of social impacts of funding programmes that support research in the mobility of people and goods
The aim of this study is to develop a conceptually and empirically sound model to capture the social effects and/or impacts caused by subsidy programmes –Thus, by working out appropriated indicators and by conceiving a rating system which is suitable for the analysis of a variety of impact dimensions, with special emphasis on ecological effects.
SynArea – Synergetic area coverage by public transport and low-threshold short trip-private transport
The aim of the project is the coverage of rural and/or suburban regions with multimodal services, which are more attractive for customers and economically more efficient than conventional public transport, accessed by walking, bike&ride or park&ride, and at the same time ecologically and socially more sustainable, than the sole use of motorised individual traffic.
The MobLab Study supports the exploration of emerging urban mobility laboratories in Austria, in order to reduce the gap between the research results of the rigid environment of a laboratory and the implementation practice by offering a targeted accompanying of new Living Labs as user centred innovation settings as well as an evaluation of the gained insights.
Traffic behaviour as much as the choice of transport mode, are already formed in the early childhood by the social environment. Here, the caregivers inherit a significant role model function. Especially every-day routes like those from or to kindergarten, to school and to leisure time activities influence the approach to mobility and the actual traffic behaviour.
In pro:motion, methods from social sciences were applied in order to identify homogeneous groups of shared mobility-related information needs and to extract appropriate group-related arguments, concerning e.g. health, environment, costs, image, adventure, in order to create incentives for active mobility.
The project “Querdenken quer denken” (Creative Thinking on Crazy Ideas) included, besides a scientific support for the projects that received the support in the currently open call for person’s mobility, an analysis of whether and to what extent existing financial instruments considered ideas, concepts, and implementation as well as perspectives that reach beyond the borders of specialized disciplines.
