What is the Baden-Württemberg Institute for Sustainable Mobility?

The „Baden-Württemberg Institute for Sustainable Mobility“ (BWIM) is an institution for applied research and the transfer of academic and technical knowledge. Combining the competencies of universities from within Baden-Württemberg, including advanced training, applied research, knowledge transfer, and political consulting, the institute has a decentralized and interdisciplinary position in the mobility sector with focus on sustainability.

Establishing a connection between universities in Baden-Württemberg and pooling their unique competencies to support sustainable development is one of our principles. We are a nexus of interdisciplinary knowledge and research, seeking and investigating the most pressing questions in the sustainable mobility domain. Our activities encompass every aspect of sustainable mobility across economy, society, and politics.

We connect different stakeholders from economics, administration, and politics to create positive and diverse examples of sustainable mobility initiatives in urban and rural areas.

BWIM bridges the gap between science, economy, society, and politics with knowledge, public mediation, and research in Baden-Württemberg and beyond.
