Exemplary projects on sustainable transport wanted
Changing the future for the better. The transport sector is one area where this is both necessary and possible. The transformation to a sustainable transportation system not only benefits the climate and the environment, but also creates multiple additional advantages, such as better air quality, improved health and quality of life. A climate-compatible transport system is more energy-efficient, saves space and is more cost-effective. Our actions today determine the mobility of tomorrow. That is why the motto of the VCÖ Mobility Award 2023 is "Shaping the future now!"
The VCÖ Mobility Award is Austria’s largest competition for sustainable transport and mobility and is carried out in cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) and the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB).
Who can participate?
The submission is open to companies, including transportation companies, municipalities, districts, research institutes, schools and universities as well as to students, special interest groups and societies, campaign groups as well as private citizens. We accept: already implemented projects and projects with guaranteed funding, inspiring pilots and concepts for projects as well as studies and works of research which promote the socio-ecological transformation of the transport system and sustainable forms of mobility.
A transformtion of transportation is achievable in many areas
How can the transportation sector be put back on climate track? How can mobility be socially just, economically efficient and be designed environmentally sound? How can companies organise mobility or goods transport climate friendly? What can municipalities and cities as well as schools and universities do to make transport more sustainable?
We are looking for submissions on the following topics:
- Healthy, active mobility
- Sharing and Mobility as a Service (MaaS)
- Climate-compatible goods traffic, transport and logistics
- Spatial planning, settlement development and housing
- Digitalisation in mobility
- Mobility management (companies, schools, universities, tourism)
- Public and publicly accessible transport, multimodality
- Energy transition, electrification and circular economy in mobility
- ‘Design for All’ – Mobility addressed to intergenerational and social needs
At the VCÖ Mobility Award Austria, Siemens supports the awarding of projects and concepts that contribute to a sustainable transport system with the help of 'digitalisation in mobility'. The best project on the subject of 'spatial planning and settlement development' is awarded with the support of the Austrian Hagelschutzversicherung. The best submission on the subject of '‘Design for All’ – Mobility adressed to intergenerational and social needs' will also receive an award in its own category, funded by the Federal Ministry for Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection.
A professional short film will be made about the winning project and will be available online. Participating projects get the opportunity to be presented in the VCÖ open access online database www.mobilitaetsprojekte.vcoe.at for exemplary projects on sustainable transport.
