The Center for Mobility is supported by four institutes (IMP-HSG, ICI-HSG, ITEM-HSG, IWÖ-HSG). The Center for Mobility's specialist council is made up of the managing professors of the participating institutes. The Center for Mobility is managed by the Institute for Systemic Management and Public Governance (IMP-HSG) and is run by Prof. Christian Laesser.
Various challenges and associated opportunities and threats characterise the domain, such as digitisation, climate change and future land use and the associated mobility systems.
|Institute for Systemic Management and Public Governance (IMP-HSG)||The IMP-HSG has many years of experience in various research domains related to transportation/mobility and regional economics (e.g. location decisions, choice of transport modes, network models, questions of future mobility and its implications). Through the leadership of the SVWG Schweizerische Verkehrswissenschaftliche Gesellschaft, the SBB Lab-HSG and the advisory board of the SBB Research Fund, as well as the membership in the committee of the STRC Swiss Transport Research Conference (EPFL, ETHZ, UNISG, USI), there is also a good network with actors in the Swiss transport industry. Together with the SVWG, the Institute has been publishing the Jahrbuch der Schweizerischen Verkehrswirtschaft for a long time.|
|Institute for Customer Insight (ICI-HSG)||The ICI-HSG is concerned with the decision-making behaviour of individuals and in particular new forms of mobility. To this end, numerous projects are carried out with the automotive industry but also with the many new technology companies such as Mobileye. In addition, a CAS on "Smart Mobility Management" will be launched in 2020. The ICI has always worked on mobility topics, as can be seen from the close cooperation with Audi and BMW and the resulting labs. Two books have also resulted from this collaboration: Autonomous Driving and The Autonomous Revolution.|
|Institute of Technology Management (ITEM-HSG)||The ITEM-HSG is working intensively in the field of new business models, which are also being researched in the context of Smart City, Autonomous Driving and e-mobility. For years, the ITEM-HSG has been involved in corporate and EU projects on innovation and new business models, for example with BMW, Daimler, Audi and Volkswagen, but also with automotive suppliers such as the Bosch IoT Lab. The 'Business Model Navigator' has been translated into dozens of languages and has become an international bestseller. The new book 'Smart City' will be published in 2019, already available in English and Chinese.|
|Institute for Economy and the Environment (IWÖ-HSG)||Since 2017, the IWÖ-HSG has been part of the SCCER Efficient Technologies and Systems for Mobility competence centre, which is managed by ETH Zurich and initiated by Innosuisse. The focus of its research work, in cooperation with the Swiss Federal Office of Energy, the city of St. Gallen and various energy suppliers, among others, is on climate-friendly and energy-efficient mobility, in particular customer acceptance and business models at the interface between electromobility and renewable energies.|
