Center for Transportation Research
Welcome to the Center for Transportation Research!
Research and Planning for sustainable Mobility
The continuously increasing negative effects of traffic, as well as the resulting bottlenecks and environmental problems demand the implementation of intermodal transportation, efficient passenger systems, and responsible mobility in the future. Sustainable mobility is therefore one of the biggest challenges that our society faces today.
With the aim of creating integrated solutions to mobility problems through interdisciplinary work, 15 scientists from the Universität Stuttgart teamed up to create FOVUS—the Center for Transportation Research at the Universität Stuttgart.
One of the main activities of FOVUS is the organisation of the international symposium "Networks for Mobility" that takes place every two years in Stuttgart, Germany. It provides the opportunity for representatives from the sciences, industry, and politics meet together to discuss the future of mobility and transportation. After the successful symposia in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010 the 6th international symposium "Networks for Mobility" will be held in Stuttgart on September 27-28, 2012.
