The ITD Philosophy

Our topic is the future. Our aim is developing future mobility.


The environmental and social consequences of present-day mobility raise the question of how we can shape future mobility today in view of diminishing fossil fuel supplies. What we need is nothing less than the transition to a “post-fossil culture of mobility.” Our work is based on the belief that sustainable mobility is less a matter of technical feasibility than of the effective interaction between cultural change, society’s capacity for innovation, and acceptance by individual users.

The ITD does not limit itself to playing the role of a think tank but creates designs of great practical significance based on visionary ideas and scientific knowledge. Our goal is to achieve a culture of sustainable mobility.
