Public Mobility in Urban Transformation

Urban development and mobility of the future in metropolitan regions is sustainable and digitally networked. At the regional level, urban development must be directed towards existing and new public transport infrastructure more than before to ensure accessibility. On the scale of neighbourhoods, short distances should be aimed at, through use-mix, pedestrian and bicycle-friendly design, supplemented by new forms of shared, demand-oriented mobility.

The public lecture series "Public Mobility in Urban Transformation" covers these topics with three expert presentations each semester.
