Urban Mobility PhD Colloquium

- Registration is closed, but non-registered Doctoral Candidates may join individual sessions -

Within the School of Engineering and Design with its new Department of Mobility Systems Engineering, to be formalized by October 2021, we want to address urban mobility from an interdisciplinary perspective. That’s why within the Research Platform TUM.Mobility as a strategic program of TUM for sustainable mobility, the PhD Colloquium on Urban Mobility takes a focus on one out of the eight fields of competence. This colloquium is a starting point, of our Chair's new openLAB Urban Mobility. 

Doctoral candidates in the field of competence on urban mobility at TUM are invited to participate. Registeration is closed, but doctoral candiates at TUM are welcome to join individual sessions to learn and participate in the discussion. Email Cat Silva to receive the link, if you are interested in joining! Find the full presentation at the end of this page.

Colloquium’s goal

The Urban Mobility PhD Colloquium is a platform, for doctoral candidates working on mobility and transportation research at TUM, to come together and exchange ideas to collectively advance the doctoral research being done in our community. The four main objectives of the colloquium are:

  1. Provide doctoral candidates an opportunity to present and discuss their research with their mobility and transportation peers, outside of their immediate study area;
  2. Offer an outlet to garner feedback on particular challenges each doctoral candidate is facing in their research;
  3. Promote an interdisciplinary dialog between researchers from any field focused on urban mobility and transportation topics; and
  4. Support an exchange of ideas about the future of urban mobility, the utility of different research methods for mobility research, and role of transportation and mobility research.

Registration and formalities

Members of the TUM Graduate School can obtain a certificate for 1 SWS credit by fulfilling three conditions:

  1. Submit a 300-word abstract about your topic to Cat Silva via email on your dissertation topic by April 22nd
  2. Present your work at the colloquium during one of the sessions
  3. Attend all colloquium sessions
