The Institute for Mobility Research is a research facility of the BMW Group. Its main task is to initiate cross-modal and interdisciplinary research with an international perspective in the domain of mobility and transport.
Since the BMW Group sees itself as a responsible mobility company, it necessarily also sees its aim as active involvement in a major, complex and networked area of conflicting interests and, thus, conducting future-orientated mobility research for the benefit of all.
ifmo’s aim is to make a contribution towards ensuring sustained mobility in the long term, in a diverse and demanding environment.
Our work entails initiating and assisting research work, and promoting specialist discussions on current or future-orientated topics relating to science, politics or the public sphere – for example by organising workshops, conferences and discussions involving panels of experts.
