Networks & Initiatives

Mobility research is a cross-sectional task that requires integrated thinking, interdisciplinary networking and interdisciplinary action. Researchers at the Department of Mobility Systems Engineering (MOS) are involved in collaborative infrastructures as well as national and international networks through memberships and project participation.

EIT Urban Mobility is an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Since January 2019 the international network has been working to encourage positive changes in the way people move around cities in order to make them more liveable places. The network consits of +250 partners from Europe’s leading companies, research and education institutions and cities.

hEART is the European Association for Research in Transportation. Its objective is to promote excellence in transportation research in Europe, with a strong emphasis on the promotion of PhD students and young researchers. Member institutions are conducting doctoral education and research.

The main activities of the association are the organization of an annual international conference for the transportation research community, and networking and exchange of information among the members.

The Gesellschaft für Verkehrstelematik BayernITS BAVARIA e. V. - promotes research and development, introduction, use and further development of intelligent traffic systems to increase traffic safety. Furthermore, it is committed to securing mobility and protecting the environment. The association gathers partners and networks from the private sector, science, politics and administration.

its-edunet is a European network for training, education, and outreach in the field of intelligent transportation system (ITS). Its members are academic institutions that teach and research topics surrounding ITS.

The main objective of the association is to improve and promote ITS at the European level, mainly by enhancing the training and education in ITS and by bringing forward pan-European knowledge exchange in order to reach a uniform level.

The Munich Cluster for the Future of Mobility in Metropolitan Regions aims to use the unique geographical concentration of innovation actors in the mobility sector in the Munich region as a "learning region" to develop scalable solutions with model character for metropolitan regions in Germany and worldwide.

In MCube, a unique network of actors from the Munich region and the fields of science, business, the public sector and society is developing sustainable solutions for mobility in metropolitan regions.

At TUM, the profile area "Sustainable Mobility - Intelligent Traffic and Transport Systems" is an important part of the future concept "TUM Agenda 2030", which is being implemented as part of the Excellence Strategy of the German federal and state governments.

More than 40 professorships at TUM are working across disciplines on the mobility of the future. Their strengths are pooled in the TUM.Mobillity research platform.
