VCÖ Mobility Award 2024

Sujet VCÖ Mobilitätspreis 2024

Exemplary projects on sustainable transport wanted

Sustainable mobility has numerous advantages: it reduces congestion, traffic noise and energy consumption, it improves air quality and quality of life for the local population, it creates more green spaces in public areas. Increasing sustainable mobility reduces car dependency, boosts freedom in the choice of transportation and reduces the costs of mobility both for individuals and for society as a whole. The VCÖ Mobility Award 2024 is looking for innovative projects that contribute to making personal mobility or freight transport more environmentally friendly, healthier and more efficient.

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 transformation 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
  • Traffic calming measures
  • Digitalisation in mobility
  • Mobility management (companies, schools, universities, tourism)
  • Public and publicly accessible transport, multimodality
  • Depaving traffic surfaces, settlement development and housing
  • ‘Design for All’ – Mobility addressed to intergenerational and social needs

At the VCÖ Mobility Award Austria, the best project on the subject of 'depaving traffic surfaces, settlement development and housing' 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 for exemplary projects on sustainable transport.

Exemplary projects are presented in the VCÖ online database

If desired, complete submissions will be presented in the VCÖ online database for exemplary mobility projects at and thus made accessible to a broad audience.
