This course is concerned with creating awareness of what is currently happening in the domain of sustainable mobility and transport solutions. Moreover, we will discuss how to evaluate innovative business models, assess their eco-efficiency and sustainability potential, and consider some data-driven modelling approaches that help to achieve sustainability.

The course features several case studies to illustrate the concepts in a hands-on fashion. Content-wise, we look at post-Covid-19 trends, sustainability assessment, green vehicles (electric, shared mobility, autonomous driving), logistics and on-demand air mobility.
