The FAMOUS (Freight Access Management for Optimizing Urban Space) project aims to evaluate legislative and technical measures for freight traffic control in cities using a comprehensive calculation and simulation model. For this purpose, the GÜMORE freight transport model is used in combination with a small-scale model for fine distribution in the urban area and the proven passenger transport model from ITS Vienna Region for access management issues in cities. In addition to traffic metrics, the reduction in greenhouse gases (CO2), energy consumption and pollutant emissions are also calculated and evaluated. In addition to the Verkehrsverbund Ost (VOR), BOKU Vienna, and hh2pro, project partners include the cities of Vienna and Wiener Neustadt.
The research project CO-INNO-LAB investigates regional success factors and models for co-innovation in university-run innovation labs. Studies are conducted with regional com-panies in the region, in particular small and medium-sized industrial companies (KMI), using methods of classic social research and innovative methods of intervention and action research. The role of infrastructures (university innovation labs) should also be examined. For this pur-pose, a innovation lab will be built. Another goal is to research the possibilities of digitizing the co-innovation process via combined real-virtual (cyber-physical) innovation spaces. The knowledge gained should be made available as recommendations for action, best practices and, in the case of technical developments, as conceptual prototypes.
