Technical University Berlin

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty V - Insti­tute of Land and Sea Trans­port Sys­tems / Chair of Integ­rated Trans­port Plan­ning

Research assist­ant - 0.5 work­ing time - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

Work­ing field:

Within the frame­work of the research pro­ject Nah­Mob, which is sup­por­ted by the Nationaler Rad­verkehr­splan (NRVP) of the BMVI, a local mobil­ity concept for a highly dense urban quarter (Wran­gelkiez) in Ber­lin Kreuzberg will be developed and imple­men­ted in a par­ti­cip­at­ory man­ner. The spe­cific require­ments of civil soci­ety on the one hand and of local polit­ics and plan­ning on the other hand will be taken into account and sub­sequently a con­crete imple­ment­a­tion concept will be draf­ted, which will clearly focus on the redesign of the urban dis­trict in a way that pro­motes mobil­ity. The ini­tial aim is to identify the gen­eral and tar­get group-spe­cific demands on infra­struc­tures that sup­port walk­ing and cyc­ling. Through close cooper­a­tion with the dis­trict, the require­ments and ideas col­lec­ted can be dir­ectly incor­por­ated into the sub­sequent concept imple­ment­a­tion. As a res­ult, the iden­ti­fied demands of the local stake­hold­ers will be con­tex­tu­al­ised with the pos­sib­il­it­ies of muni­cipal design and form­al­ised in the form of a guideline for the design of neigh­bour­hoods that pro­mote mobil­ity. The chosen study area in Ber­lin Kreuzberg is char­ac­ter­ised by a par­tic­u­larly act­ive civil soci­ety, which has already developed its own con­cepts for the car-free redesign of the urban dis­trict (Auto­frei Wran­gelkiez). Muni­cipal polit­ics is also open to the idea of redesign­ing the urban space in favour of cyc­ling and walk­ing, which is why this pro­ject offers the rare oppor­tun­ity to bring together the cent­ral act­ors for local mobil­ity under sci­entific super­vi­sion.

The work­ing field includes:
  • con­cep­tion and organ­isa­tion of a rep­res­ent­at­ive sur­vey in the Wran­gelkiez
  • actor ana­lysis and imple­ment­a­tion of focus group dis­cus­sions

  • com­mu­nic­a­tion with local stake­hold­ers and pro­ject part­ners
