German Aerospace Center (DLR) – Institute of Transport Research
Germany – Berlin
Which are the organisation’s thematic competences and experiences relevant for ART-Forum?
The DLR Institute of Transport Research has many years of experience in scientific and applied transport research. They will contribute their expert knowledge on methods of qualitative transport research (e.g. explorative and participatory workshop formats), the conversion of results from such workshops into quantifiable parameters and their expertise in transport modelling to the project.
What is the main role in ART-Forum?
DLR will contribute to the objective of engaging stakeholders in a dialogue on impacts of ART. Aside from the first order effects like travel behaviour, traffic volume/flow, DLR will pay particular attention to building knowledge on second order effects on the build environment like parking space requirements, street design and land use. DLR will contextualise this knowledge for the involved cities and participate in developing roadmaps for long-term transport and urban planning strategies.
