How does design drives the development of sustainable mobility systems?

The school of design at the HfG Offenbach University of Art and Design will be hosting the international design conference “re/set mobility design” in Offenbach, Germany, on November 7–8, 2019, featuring international future-oriented and visionary experts from mobility design, infrastructure, and architecture.

Agenda
The conference will start on November 7 in the evening with a welcome by HfG president Bernd Kracke and greetings by State Minister Angela Dorn, as well as an introduction by Peter Eckart (Design Institute for Mobility and Logistics) on mobility design as a new challenge for designers. 

After, Carlo Ratti (MIT Senseable Lab) will deliver a keynote speech on his ideas on mobility design, followed by a discussion between Carlo Ratti and Peter Eckart, moderated by Kai Vöckler.

The second day of the conference will include three panels:

Panel 1: MOBILITY SYSTEMS – designing intermodal moving vehicles 
Panel 2: MOBILITY HUBS – designing the infrastructure
Panel 3: MOBILITY AS A SERVICE (MaaS) – designing digital access

Background
The University of Art and Design (HfG) in Offenbach is working on the future of new sustainable mobility and building up a Center of Mobility Design within the next years. Product designer Peter Eckart holds the teaching area for integrated design at the HfG and has specialized in the field of mobility (including bicycles), among other things. With his office unit-design he is working on projects for information and public design. Together with urbanist Kai Vöckler, expert for transdisciplinary design and author of numerous books on urban development, he initiated the interdisciplinary research cluster "Infrastructure - Design - Society. Design Research in Mobility Systems for Developing Multimodal, Environmentally Friendly Mobility in the Metropolitan Area Rhine-Main" (2018–2021). The Technical University Darmstadt, the Goethe University Frankfurt and the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences are also involved in this research project, which is sponsored by the Hessian Ministry of Science and the Arts.
