The Transport and Mobility competence team deals with social science and interdisciplinary aspects of sustainable mobility. We deal with both national and European research in the area of transport behaviour, mobility management, strategic transport planning, promotion of transport modes alternative to car transport, sustainable tourism and recreational mobility and issues of innovative transport services and smart technologies in transport.
We pay particular attention to sustainable urban mobility and strategic transport planning in cities and larger territorial units. Our research topics in this area include, among other things, drawing of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans and Institutional Mobility Plans, ex-ante and ex-post evaluation of measures for promotion of sustainable mobility and transport strategies, impact analysis and modelling of development scenarios in sustainable mobility, transport surveys, roles of stakeholders and public involvement in transport planning processes.
Our activities encompass both primary and applied research and consultation at the European, national and local levels. We also pursue popularization of our research results and teaching, including drawing of education materials for both students and teachers.
Our research projects focus on activities with a significant application potential, primarily for public administration and self-governments. Our main application partners are state institutions (relevant ministries), regions and municipalities and their associations. We also collaborate with public transport organizers. In our research activities on sustainable mobility in large-scale protected areas, we cooperate with the Nature Conservation Agency of the Czech Republic and National Park and Protected Landscape Area administrations.
We collaborate on our research with researchers and research institutions in Czechia and abroad.
Actual partners are specified for each of the projects.
