September 16, 2022: Hands-on Science & Citizen Dialogue "Mobility of the Future" in Stuttgart-Vaihingen, Germany

How will we get around in the future and what will the mobility of the future look like, taking into account technologies that conserve resources and the environment? Research institutes located in Vaihingen are dealing with these questions as part of their research. In order to bring local research closer to citizens and to strengthen mutual dialog, the event "Hands-on science & citizen dialog: Mobility of the Future" will be held as part of the Stuttgart Mobility Week "Better Connected".

With the Vaihingen University Campus and a large number of non-university research institutions such as FKFS, the Research Institute for Automotive Engineering and Powertrain Systems Stuttgart or ARENA2036, large parts of Germany's research landscape are concentrated here. 

On the first Friday after the summer holidays, the research institutions will be showing, among other things:

  • - Novel electric motors of the Innovation Campus Mobility of the Future (ICM)
  • - Automated CampusShuttle of the University of Stuttgart (MobiLab)
  • - Information on the RABus project of the Research Institute for Automotive Engineering and Powertrain Systems Stuttgart (FKFS)
  • - Customized battery systems for the mobility of the future
  • - Pedal Power Experience by ARENA2036

Around 4:30 p.m., a small moderated panel discussion will take place and even before that, you can visit exhibits and talk to the experts of the participating institutions.
