The Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) invited research project consortia of the latest call on June 21st. Representatives of all research projects, funded in the 9th call of the program “Mobility of the Future” gathered in Vienna for an inspiring networking event.
The goal of this workshop was to present recently kicked-off research projects and connect the relevant players. Sven Leitinger from Salzburg Research as well as Bernhard Zagel and Martin Loidl from Z_GIS presented the project Bicycle Observatory and initiated further collaborations. Here, research projects that acquire and analyze mobility data are especially relevant for our work. We are looking forward to considering additional data in our holistic picture of cycling mobility. And of course, we are happy to share our data and insights as much as possible.

In general, the popularity of research on active mobility within the program’s focus on people’s mobility became obvious in the course of the event. If your research interests and professional work revolve around cycling, traffic data and mobility behavior, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We would be glad to discuss opportunities for joining forces and try to establish a sustainable cycling culture in our communities.
