Traffic and Infrastructure
The Institute for Transport and Infrastructure (IVI) develops and tests concepts for the sustainable design of our transport system. The central question is which adjustments are necessary to enable future-oriented ecological, economic and socially compatible mobility. The cornerstones are climate protection, the resilience of the transport infrastructure, demographic change, globalisation and digitalisation.
Five professors from the faculties of architecture and civil engineering as well as information management and media are active in the institute, which has been in existence since 2015. Together with their research team, they bundle numerous competences in transport and infrastructure planning.
Research at the IVI focuses on land-based modes of transport. The following areas are covered:
Close cooperation with municipalities and political decision-makers enables the development and practical application of new approaches. The "real laboratory" research format, in which new concepts are tested using real experiments in public spaces, has proven particularly successful. Citizens thus become part of the research and can actively contribute to the process thanks to various participation formats.
