DACH Mobility Conference

Date: November 15, 2023, 9:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.

Place: Kursaal Bern, Kornhausstrasse 3, 3013 Bern

Networks in Mobility – How does networking work?

Mobility is indispensable. Hardly anything shapes the economy and society, but also our own everyday life as much as mobility. It has become a central element of our daily lives – based on a reliable and safe transport system. But this system is increasingly reaching its limits. Mobility needs are changing and overall mobility is increasing, but increasingly there is a lack of space and financial resources to further expand transport infrastructure and means of transport. At the same time, transportation systems must become more energy efficient and climate neutral. Solutions are needed, and networking is one of the most promising keys to achieving this.

Integrating road, rail, air and water modes of transport enables smooth mobility using the most suitable mode of transport in each case. The networking of systems enables the exchange of data between vehicles, transport infrastructure and road users, thus opening up opportunities for new mobility concepts such as shared mobility and the interplay of public and private means of transport. At the traveler level, it influences user behavior and acceptance of new innovative mobility forms and concepts. New cooperative business models are enabled by innovative platforms that integrate different transport options and promote the development of “ecosystems.”

It all sounds plausible: but what role does networking really play? How important is people’s willingness to change? Which approaches are promising, which technologies are best suited, what role do ecosystems play?

These and other questions will determine the program of the DACH Mobility Conference on November 15, 2023 at the Kursaal in Bern, which will be jointly hosted by asut, its-ch, ASTRA and TCS with the partner associations ITS Austria, ITS Germany and ITS mobility.

As usual, the event offers participants the ideal setting for discussions and contacts with representatives from politics, business, science and administration, as well as to cultivate valuable contacts beyond industry boundaries and to find out about the latest trends in the accompanying exhibition.

The congress-language is German.
