The cross-organizational bundling of technical, socio-technical and societal problem solving expertise of the partners in a high performance center helps to further fortify Karlsruhe’s status as visible centre of mobility research. At the same time, Karlsruhe also serves as proving ground for the concepts and technologies developed with the goal to preserve city and region as an attractive living and work environment despite increasing demand for transport.
