18th August 2022 - 1st Think-Tank-Meeting of UpGrade Mobility

Today, the first think tank meeting of the graduate school UpGrade Mobility was held. The members met in a relaxed atmosphere and discussed various possible research topics.

The main topic of the meeting was data-driven mobility. First, various forms of data-driven mobility were explained and, on this basis, various further ideas from the different domains of mobility were collected. After a subsequent evaluation, individual ideas were further developed, up to the first steps that a possible research project would have to complete. We would like to thank everyone for their active participation and look forward to the next meeting.
