Urban Mobility PhD Colloquium

Within the School of Engineering and Design with its new Department of Mobility Systems Engineering, we want to address urban mobility from an interdisciplinary perspective. That’s why within the Interdisciplinary Research Platform TUM.Mobility as a strategic program of TUM for sustainable mobility, the PhD Colloquium on Urban Mobility takes a focus on one out of the eight fields of competence. This colloquium is part of our Chair's openLAB Urban Mobility, which also focuses on interdisciplinary networking within TUM. 

Doctoral candidates in the field of competence on urban mobility at TUM are invited to participate.

Colloquium’s goal

The Urban Mobility PhD Colloquium is a platform, for doctoral candidates working on mobility and transportation research at TUM, to come together and exchange ideas to collectively advance the doctoral research being done in our community. The four main objectives of the colloquium are:

  1. Provide doctoral candidates an opportunity to present and discuss their research with their mobility and transportation peers, outside of their immediate study area;
  2. Offer an outlet to garner feedback on particular challenges each doctoral candidate is facing in their research;
  3. Promote an interdisciplinary dialog between researchers from any field focused on urban mobility and transportation topics; and
  4. Support an exchange of ideas about the future of urban mobility, the utility of different research methods for mobility research, and role of transportation and mobility research.
