Short description
Mobility is a basic need of human beings. But how mobile are we really in our everyday life, in our job and in our leisure time? What is driving us? The BMW forum gave a thought-provoking impulse on occasion of the Kiku. International Mountain Summit to think on how mobility as a means to an end is connected to mobility as end in itself. In this context a bow was drawn from the beginnings of mobility, the movements up to the modern and trend-setting types of mobility, such as e-mobility.

Short description
How does the future of mobility look like? Social, economic and technological developments set increasingly complex requirements for the transport system and its efficiency. New technologies can provide an essential contribution for shaping mobility in the future. But technologies alone will not be able to cope with challenges like climate change, lack of resources and demographic changes. Dr. Peter Phleps from ifmo and Prof. Dr. Hermann Knoflacher from Technical University of Vienna joined the podium at a science talk in the Aula der Wissenschaften in Vienna. Moderator of the event was Gabriele Gerhardter, head of innovation and mobility at OEAMTC.
