ifeu is currently conducting the research project "MOBITAT 2050 Living and Working 2050 - Sustainable Mobility for Commuters of the Future". The project is being worked on jointly with DLR, RWTH Aachen University, ConPolicy GmbH and ivm GmbH and is funded by the "MobilityFutureLab2050" of the BMBF framework programme "Research for Sustainable Development" (FONA).

The aim of the project is to develop a sustainable concept for regions of the future by taking an integrated view of housing, work and transport. The focus of ifeu’s work is the development and testing of a methodology for sustainability assessment. Ecological, social and economic aspects of commuting mobility and the resulting choice of living and working locations are included in order to provide a methodology that can also be transferred to other regions in the sense of a holistic concept of sustainability. The sustainability assessment should be applicable both to the status quo of commuting mobility in the region and to scenarios with various measures. This is being developed using the example of the Frankfurt-Rhine-Main metropolitan region. An important building block for the sustainability assessment in the target image “Just Society” is the accessibility of destinations for daily needs.
In order to support ifeu in the sustainability assessment, accessibility analyses for bicycle traffic as well as public transport were carried out with GOAT for the 520 municipalities in the Frankfurt-Rhine-Main Metropolitan Region.
