"Open Source Lab" sets course for the mobility of the future

  • Open Source Lab for Sustainable Mobility launches dialogue in a round table format
  • Initiative project of the Volkswagen Group Sustainability Council

Yesterday in Berlin, the "Open Source Lab for Sustainable Mobility" has started dialogue as a platform for sustainable mobility. It is funded by the Volkswagen Group Sustainability Council, it is independent in its research agenda and is obliged to publish all research findings and other results.

"Our idea within the Sustainability Council was to create an open platform for dialogue on the future of mobility," said Gesche Joost, a professor at the University of the Arts and a member of the Volkswagen Sustainability Council. As a launch event, national and international experts from research, non-profit organizations, startups and corporations discussed sustainable mobility at a roundtable.

The Open Source Lab is based on a collaborative network-driven approach. The purpose of the lab is to facilitate interdisciplinary research and a broad dialogue on sustainable mobility. It involves the public and various stakeholders. The work is based on a broader understanding of mobility and includes topics such as governance, urban planning or social justice. It is accessible on the Internet at: https://opensourcelab.dfki.de

The Open Source Lab for Sustainable Mobility is realized by the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH) and is located on the EUREF campus in the center of Berlin.
