The initiative aims to develop an internationally leading research hub for mobility in Switzerland and to create solutions to future challenges. “Mobility is going to see substantial changes over the coming years – and it’s a major competitive driver for Switzerland, too. There is a close correlation between the economy and mobility,” says Morten Hannesbo, CEO of AMAG Group AG.
AMAG will offer the initiative important support by bringing in a new perspective: alongside SBB and Siemens Mobility, AMAG represents another partner with a broad understanding of mobility on the roads and beyond. Such partnerships with companies enable ETH Zurich to integrate inspiration from practical experience into its research, and allow ETH to accelerate the transfer of knowledge into practice.
