Area Mobility and Space


The Area "Mobility and Space" at the Center for Technology and Society (CTS) of the Technische Universität Berlin researches on questions of human mobility and commercial transport. In addition to foundational research, our colleagues offer consultation for politics and businesses on local, national and international levels. Furthermore, we offer support for the planning and implementation of innovative mobility proposals in urban and rural areas.

Our mission is to search for a resource-efficient individual and collective mobility. This includes all people, mobility for everyday activities and during recreation time, transport of goods and services traffic, and settlements as well as infrastructure.

The goal of our research is to develop and implement an integrated concept for safeguarding sustainable mobility in rural as well as urban spaces. Also, we aim to give planning advice and guidance for political programs.

We use tools and methods of classic transport science, city and regional planning, social and environmental science, behavioral science, and evaluation and participation research. In doing this, we apply quantitative and qualitative methods (interviews, user and household surveys, traffic censuses, etc.).

On account of the interdisciplinary orientation of our research institution, diverse methods and tools, beyond those of classic mobility research, are available to the Area Mobility and Space: survey and evaluation procedures of consumer research, environmental and technical impact assessment or planning cells as a participation tool. For observation of transport impacts, we also use the approaches of our external partners (e.g. VISUM).

Our areas of examination are peripheral rural regions (e.g. "Pilot Project for Demographic Change for ensuring of basic services") as well as urban spaces in international contexts (e.g. megacity research projects) in equal measure.
