The Sustainable long-distance mobility Chair’s goal is to carry out a research project on tomorrow’s land-based mobilities in order to make them carbon-free and connected. It focuses on the study of “mobility as a service” (MaaS) platforms offering their users journeys based on low-carbon means of transport (carpooling, bus and train). The research conducted will be mainly in the field of industrial economics, but will also involve other disciplines (e.g. environmental economics and behavioral economics)
