Digitisation, automation and decarbonisation not only have an impact on our mobility behaviour, they also change our societal model. AustriaTech supports the active shaping of these transformation processes in the field of mobility. As a consultative agency and as a go-between between politics, industry and research, we show possible courses of action to make transport more sustainable, efficient and safe.
As a non-profit-organisation, AustriaTech has for more than ten years been following the goal of placing people at the centre of new mobility solutions and helping technological developments to be implemented. As a 100% subsidiary of the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology, we accompany innovation processes, advise on the implementation of national and European guidelines and promote exchange and joint learning between the stakeholders involved at national and international levels.
AustriaTech is organised in two business units and another team. Through interdisciplinary collaborations we want to use synergies and create an added value for our project partners and stakeholders as well as our employees. The main emphasis of the Business Unit Technology and Services for Mobility are on implementation-oriented activities in the areas of ITS and development and implementation processes for new mobility services. The transfer of research and pilot projects results into the implementation are in the foreground here. The Business Unit Mobility Innovation supports common activities between science, industry, society and politics to further develop the mobility system. Embedded into international networks AustriaTech operates as a partner to develop and support innovation strategies for the mobility system.
