Recap: euMOVE 2023

TUM students analysed exciting european metropolises and compared their mobility innovations and systems: What does the future of mobility look like in Budapest? What can we learn from Prague? Is Lyon really so much more advanced than Munich?

During the culminating event of the European Mobility Venture (euMOVE), attendees were treated to enlightening presentations, interactive discussions, and valuable networking prospects with mobility industry professionals. This occasion provided an outstanding platform to amass priceless insights, exchange novel concepts, and cultivate partnerships that will steer the trajectory of mobility in the future. Furthermore, participants were granted a deep understanding of the research undertakings and outcomes of the three primary teams, each of which explored distinct mobility themes across various European cities.

Prague – shared mobility

Prague's integrated mobility system provides exciting insights into the trends of inclusion and implementation of shared mobility, as well as the steps towards a mindshift in this regard. As a city consisting of many administrative districts, Prague shows an interesting diversity of pilot projects and innovations.

Budapest – mobility pricing

Budapest, a city with a rich legacy of public transportation, is now focused towards investments and research in the transport sector and infrastructure. The city strives to elevate the competitiveness of its existing services, foster innovation, and improve livability to new heights. By integrating micro-mobility options and conducting in-depth research on mobility pricing strategies, Budapest is actively working towards reducing car dependency and promoting environmentally friendly transportation solutions.

Lyon – Urban Living Labs

Lyon has become a leading hub for mobility test beds, making it an exciting location for conducting research in this field. Moreover, Lyon offers a unique blend of urban and suburban areas, making it an ideal setting to explore mobility solutions and their impact on different types of environments.

Additionally, the students were allowed to present their research results during a Pecha Kucha session on the stage of the Citizens Lab during the IAA Mobility 2023. Three students presented interessting insights of their trip. Additionally, the final report was published during the session.

What is euMOVE?

The euMOVE initiative is geared towards the exploration and analysis of pioneering and sustainable mobility solutions within European metropolises. This collaborative endeavor involves the Chair of Automotive Technology, Chair of Urban Structure and Transport Planning, Professorship of Urban Design, and Chair of Innovations Society and Public Policy at the Technical University of Munich. The main focus of this year's project encompass shared mobility, mobility experiments, and mobility pricing. The objective is to discern exemplary practices, confront obstacles, and seize opportunities within this domain. Addressing the challenges of transportation evolution, including discussions about post-growth scenarios, the discourse on mobility transition, and the imperative of inclusivity and social equity, is paramount in establishing mobility systems that are both sustainable and universally beneficial. The project workforce spans various disciplines, comprising mechanical engineering, urban planning, design, and public policy. Close collaboration with domain experts ensures the research remains firmly rooted in practical knowledge and field experience.
