7th Scientific Forum for Mobility on ”National and International Trends in Mobility“
Since 2008, Prof. Dr. Heike Proff, Chair of General Business Administration & International Automotive Management at the Faculty of Engineering has been organizing the annual Scientific Forum for Mobility (Wissenschaftsforum Mobilität) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE). | The event provides a platform for intensive discussions of research projects. Presentations cover the broad area of research on mobility, bringing together about 200 experts from both academia and industry. | The research in the field of mobility features shows a very dynamic development. | The broad approach of the Scientific Forum for Mobility was reflected in the different topics, divided in five parallel tracks, each containing three sessions.
International Track and Sessions in English
The 7th Scientific Forum for Mobility on ”National and International Trends in Mobility“ took place on June 18, 2015 at the Fraunhofer-inHaus Zentrum in Duisburg. For the first time in the history of the Scientific Forum for Mobility, an international track under the title “International Trends in Mobility” was included in order to open the event for an international audience and to invite English presentations. In addition, some papers on Automotive Engineering were presented in English.
Track 5 on “International Trends in Mobility” was chaired by Prof. Dr. W. Pascha, Chair of East Asian, Studies/Japan and Korea, Prof. Dr. M. Taube, Chair of East Asian Studies, China. Three sessions covered international strategies of cooperation and co-development, new developments in Chinese mobility as well as new service and product business models in international comparison. Participants came for instance from Kyushu University, Amsterdam University and the University of Lyon to present their research at the Scientific Forum for Mobility.
Mira Schüller, Doctoral Researcher at the IN-EAST School of Advanced Studies, gave a presentation on „Alternative Antriebe und Kraftstoffe zur nachhaltigen Sicherung der Mobilität mit besonderem Fokus auf Ostasien“ in Track 2 on Automotive Engineering, chaired by her supervisor Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dieter Schramm, Head of Mechatronics at the Faculty of Engineering, UDE.
Prof. Shuanping Dai and Aleksandra Davydova, both of them are focusing on Innovation and the Chinese Economy in their research at the IN-EAST School of Advanced Studies, presented intermediate results for their joint paper “Collaboration Networks of Chinese Electric Mobility Firms: Structure Pattern and Policy Implications”.
“Presenting at this track was really helpful”, Aleksandra explained. “The audience consisted not only from researches but also from business representatives. Thanks to such a variety we did not only receive questions - which showed the importance of our research from the scientific perspective - but also got some important suggestions on how to continue our research from experts form the practical field.”
Roman Bartnik, Group Leader of the E-Mobility Research Group at the IN-EAST School of Advanced Studies gave a presentation on “Herding cats, mice and dogs: increasing technological breadth and its effects on information processing and coordination in automotive ECU development”.
