The Boysen - TU Dresden - Research Training Group for Young Researchers from the Engineering, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, co-financed by the Friedrich and Elisabeth Boysen Foundation and Technische Universität Dresden, offers, subject to resources being available, 16 doctoral scholarships for a period of three years starting on 1st January 2019. The interdisciplinary Research Training Group Mobility in flux - Challenges and solutions for technology, environment and society consists of four Clusters.

Cluster D: Effects of mobility scenarios on noise, landscape, climate and health

Disciplines involved:

Occupational and social medicine; acoustics and haptics; landscape architecture

The transformation of mobility does not only bring about a change in economic structure, technology and user behaviour, but will also have an impact on the perception of the environment and physical well-being. For example, a significant change in noise emissions from roads is to be expected. These effects must be considered within the alternative mobility scenarios, in which the economic and spatial decisions are taken into account. The aim of the cluster is therefore to create corresponding simulation models and to estimate scenario-specific effects. The challenge lies in finding suitable measures for the health effects and preventive factors. The cluster consists of three sub-projects:

SP D1:     The effects of the different mobility scenarios of the future on the nuisance caused by traffic noise

SP D2:     Scenarios of the transformation of the transport system: How do sustainability developments, environmental justice considerations and the transition to non-fossil energy sources have a concrete local impact?

SP D3:     Mobility scenarios & green infrastructure in cities
