Business Information Systems


NEMo is an acronym (in german) for “Sustainable satisfaction of mobility demands in rural regions”.

As a result of demographical change it is getting more and more difficult for municipalities to offer a basic set of public transport services like bus and train. On the other side the mobility demand in rural regions is increasing because of the agglomeration of health care and shopping infrastructure nearby cities.

Based on this problem statement the research project NEMo is developing sustainable and innovative mobility offers and supporting business models especially for rural regions. Information and communication technology plays an important role as enabler for participation.

NEMo is funded by the VW foundation with 1,53 mio. € and is scheduled for 3 years. Funded are 8 doctoral students and 1 postdoc position. NEMo is an inter- and transdisciplinary project. Besides the scientific participants many partners from industry and public are involved in the project.
