Sustainable Mobility Lab

Exploiting the benefits of digitization for citizens, companies, research institutions and public authorities

The four-country region of Lake Constance has high mobility requirements. Intensive inner-city and intercity traffic - in often very challenging topography - meet, traffic flows run across national borders, and the many small towns form unattractive mobility markets for providers of existing mobility solutions. In combination with the increased traffic or emission volumes in passenger and freight transport in the region, the complexity increases and thus requires innovative, systematically cross-border and mostly digitally supported solutions.
For this purpose, the lab implements a virtual as well as physical platform that suitably networks all relevant, regional mobility actors of the Quadruple Helix and supports them in the development of innovative mobility solutions as well as their testing and implementation in practical projects around Lake Constance. In this way, the Lake Constance region is to become an experimental laboratory (in the sense of a Living Lab) for innovative, sustainable mobility solutions.
The Lab follows an entrepreneurial, agile and iterative approach that uses alternative ways of thinking and working (Design Thinking/Lean Startup/Prototying) for targeted, collaborative development with established companies and new startups and permanently integrates all actors in a transdisciplinary way - supported by the platform. This leads to intentional networking (N-to-N relationship) and collaboration of mobility actors, targeted practical projects and a dissemination of the findings from the piloting and, based on this, sustainable, innovative mobility services in the four-country region of Lake Constance - driven by new, regional entrepreneurship.
The newly created structures and services should increase the competitiveness and attractiveness of the region; not only for existing companies and new mobility providers through new economic activities, but also for talents, tourism and residents.
