About the Event

On September 14th, 2020, we gathered online for a virtual Final Conference of the mobil.LAB Doctoral Research Group. Our thirteen mobil.LAB doctoral fellows shared the results from their research projects and enjoyed the day’s fruitful discussion on how we might approach Changing Unsustainable Mobility Cultures.

All of the presentations given our doctoral fellows are available for viewing and download. You will also find recordings of the input given by the Speakers of the mobil.LAB, Prof. Dr.-Ing Gebhard Wulfhorst and Prof. Dr. Sven Kesselring, the keynote talk from Prof. Dr. Henrike Rau and the input given by our Conference Observers, Dr. Justin Spinney and Dr. Jessica Le Bris.

Our fellows also have more to say than about mobility than what you heard in their presentations. Keep scrolling to learn more about the new mobil.LAB podcast series and listen to the first episode.

The free virtual event was co-financed by the Hans Böckler Foundation and is co-hosted by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Nürtingen-Geislingen University (HfWU). A special thank you goes to our four guest moderators and alumni of the mobil.LAB, Dr.-Ing. Benjamin Büttner, Dr.-Ing. Montserrat Miramontes, Dr.-Ing. Matthew Bediako Okrah and Prof. Dr. Dominic Villeneuve.
