ETH Mobility Initiative

Logo ETH SBB Siemens amag

ETH Zurich has launched the ETH Mobility Initiative together with the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) as first partner followed by Siemens joining in 2019 and AMAG Group AG in 2020 to further expand research and education in the area of Mobility. Additional partners are expected to join in the near future. Within this framework, a long-term research program has been established aiming at bringing together competences from academic and industrial research in the field of Future Mobility. The overarching goal is to develop solutions that address grand challenges like the decarbonization, digitalization and development of the infrastructure in the coming decades. The program is structured around annual calls over a period of ten years that supports research projects at the doctoral and post-doctoral level.
