The design and management of transportation is of central significance for the evolvement of modern societies. Current projects such as developing Germany as a lead market for e-mobility or the discussions about private investment in traffic infrastructure and facilities underline the importance of scientifically founded arguments for the process of finding socially acceptable and sustainable solutions. This requires direct and fast access to research-related information, tools and information as well as support services. Considering the articulated and researched demand among the community of transport scientists, the overall goal of the project is to develop and establish the Scientific Information Service for Mobility and Transport Research (German: FID move). This service is directed at all full-time professionals in mobility research, who explore the behaviour and motivation of traffic participants, as well as more technology and impact-orientated transport research. Closely linked in their interactions, both expert fields supply direct input for strategic and operative issues concerning the definition and design of traffic.
The additional benefit of the designed FID move for the specialists community derives from access to relevant information and open research tools as well as to information services and the associated support of the entire research circle as defined by specialist requirements. SLUB and TIB mean to perpetuate FID move beyond the project period, regularly evaluating and enhancing/refining it in cooperation with the specialist community.
