mobil.LAB Doctoral Research Group
Sustainable Mobility in the Metropolitan Region of Munich
Shaping Mobility Cultures
The mobil.LAB Doctoral Reserch Group is a unique interdisciplinary and international group of doctoral candidates and researchers conducting research on the theme of sustainable mobility in the metropolitan region of Munich. The mobil.LAB is a joint programme of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Nürtingen-Geislingen University (HfWU), and is funded by the Hans-Böckler Foundation (HBS).
The group is focused on high-quality doctoral research in a unique academic environment, where exchange between the members of the group, the associated researchers, and with external academics and professionals is important. Our activities include regular colloquia and seminars, PhD workshops, conferences, public lectures and policy workshops.
The research group was set up in 2011, and began its second phase with a new generation of fellows starting from October 2016.
For more information in terms of the concept for the second phase please look here.
The mobil.LAB is by design an interdisciplinary research group and it was created with the hopes that the interactions between researchers from varied scientific disciplinary backgrounds would help towards finding solutions to the wicked problem of making urban mobility more sustainable. As part of a reflexive exercise on the interdisciplinarity of our group, we have produced an interdisciplinary word cloud of our (un)official logo (yes, it’s a cycling unicorn).
