Research on the mobility of the future

For the future of mobility


Mobility is undergoing a radical transformation. Markets and business models are changing in response to changes in the needs of individuals and society, revolutionary technological developments such as digitalisation, new mobility providers and new regulations. Turning these changes and innovations into environmentally and economically sustainable mobility solutions will require cooperation between various scientific disciplines and industry partners.

Shaping the future

Our goal

Under the “Mobility Initiative”, ETH is strengthening its expertise and expanding its activities in this area. Future mobility solutions are being developed in cooperation with industry partners.

Important topics of research in the field of public transport include the optimisation of mobility and logistics services or the use of digitalisation to increase the efficiency of transport systems. In the field of individual transport, research will focus, for example, on modern engine technologies or the control and operation of autonomous transport systems. ETH aims to become a leading centre for mobility research, both nationally and internationally.
