A steady growth of the world population, an increase in urbanization, societal change and the advancement of technology are just a few developments that have far-reaching effects on our future mobility. As a result, the international mobility system and its players are experiencing a major change which concerns technical, organizational and legal aspects.


A change in mobility – mobility in change

Noticing these changing environments it is necessary to establish a framework for a digital, clean, service-oriented and affordable mobility system. It is ensured that mobility remains “in motion” and serves both – uses of the mobility system and economic value.

Living Labs offer an ideal framework for a joint development of future innovations in interaction with all mentioned groups and players – co-creation and user involvement are a key success factor for sustainable products and services and therefore also a key factor in the success of a Living Lab.
