SUMRICA - Sustainable Mobility Research in Central Asia

Lupe

Initiative: Between Europe and Orient - Central Asia/Caucasus in the focus of science.

The project focuses on interuniversity cooperation between German and Central Asian (CA) universities and one university in the neighbouring country Iran. Main activities connecting the project cooperation partners are gatherings, including summer schools, thematic and administrative workshops, research stays and publications - all targeting three main themes: (1) Land use / transportation, integrated transportation planning, (2) Environmentally friendly mobility, (3) Transport policies and financial issues.

Mobility Forum on 19/09/2019 at 10-12 a.m.

Mobility Forum on 17/10/2019 at 10-12 a.m.

Topic: SUMRICA (Sustainable Urban Mobility in Central Asia) scholars are presenting the current status of their research.

For more information on the specific event please see the Sektion "Mobilityforum" on the Research Unit's website.


The MobilityForum or MoFo is a loose format in which the area "Mobility and Space" discusses mobility issues with external mobility researchers and practitioners. The external guests present new research ideas, open research questions or results of completed projects. In a second part, master's or doctoral students present the status of their work.
The MoFo takes place every 4 weeks on Thursdays at ZTG, Hardenbergstr. 16-18, 10623 Berlin, room HBS 517.

SUMRICA School in Khiva, October/November 2019

SUMRICA School in Bishkek, May 2019

The second SUMRICA School with the topic Accessibility and Sustainable Urban Mobility will take place from  28.10.2019-01.11.2019 in Khiva, Uzbekistan. More information ...

The first SUMRICA School took place in Bishkek between the dates 06-10.05.2019. It was the concluding event of the first research round in which the results of the research stays were presented and discussed. The school focused on the topic: Land Use/Transportation Interactions, Integrated Transportation Planning. During the working groups of the school, participants were discussing ideas sustainable mobility developments together with local stakeholders.

Project Description

The project focuses on interuniversity cooperation between German and Central Asian (CA) universities and one university in the neighboring country Iran. Main activities connecting the project cooperation partners are gatherings, including summer schools, thematic and administrative workshops, research stays and publications - all targeting three main themes: (1) Land use / transportation, integrated transportation planning, (2) Environmentally friendly mobility, (3) Transport policies and financial issues. SUMRICA will tackle the societal challenges of CA concerning urban mobility by capacity building and increasing academic and professional bodies' awareness of sustainable transportation. Target groups are young researchers, instructors and professionals, either studying at or employed by a cooperation partner university, who will directly influence the future mobility and urban planning trends in CA. The project motivates young academics from CA to learn more about interdisciplinary transportation topics. A summer school is organized each year in one of the CA cooperation partner countries (Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan) by researchers from the German and cooperation partner universities. Cooperation between CA researchers and German PhD students is promoted by research stays, supported by three-month scholarships, at Technische Universität Berlin to intensify scientific exchange on common research topics with other German scientists in the field of sustainable transportation. The results of the research stays are presented in summer schools and during the project. Furthermore, they will be developed to be published in peer-reviewed journals and the project's publication series. SUMRICA aims at a long-term perception shift of the discipline in CA by providing next generation researchers, planners, officials and politicians with state of the art knowledge. The consortium includes eight universities from Germany, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Iran.
