Profilregion Moblitätssysteme Karlsruhe

Within the „Profilregion Mobilitätssysteme Karlsruhe“, the research expertise and the development competence in the field of mobility systems available and located at Karlsruhe will be combined and linked with the industry. The project is funded by the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. Several institutes at KIT, Fraunhofer, Hochschule Karlsruhe and FZI (Forschungszentrum Informatik) are involved in the project and combine interdisciplinary research expertise. Seven initialization projects are supposed to bring the different partners closer together. Within the project synergy potentials will be exploited and a mutual cross-institutional exchange of knowledge will be initialized. In Phase I IIP was part of the initialization projects „Transportation and Mobility in a changing society“ and „Mobility in an urban environment – needs-oriented infrastructure solutions in future cities“ with a focus on electric mobility topics. Further information about the seven initialization projects are available at:
In Phase II, IIP participates in the sub-project "Urban Mobility in Transition". Analyses focus on topics in the field of alternative drive trains and mobility concepts in the context of urban mobility solutions, related socio-economic implications as well as on analyses of potentials for electrifying Karlsruhe's taxi service.
