Future Mobility Research Program

ETH Zurich has launched the ETH Mobility Initiative together with the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) as first partner 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 is being 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.
