The Research College ACCESS! is dedicated to the development of transformation paths for integrated technology and mobility concepts and sustainable mobility systems. Doctoral students from the fields of technology, social and economic sciences work together on current and socially relevant questions concerning the design of future mobility systems. Future technical and infrastructural possibilities as well as societal demands and global environmental goals are taken into account.
ACCESS! as a NRW Research School is characterized by a highly inter- and transdisciplinary orientation. For this reason, numerous social actors and representatives of practice are involved in the work of the college, e.g. municipal actors such as the city of Aachen and the district of Heinsberg, but also associations, mobility service providers and technology developers. Together with these actors, the doctoral students work in interdisciplinary teams to develop concrete concepts and solutions for the challenges of practice. In addition, the college is also internationally in the EuRegio Meuse-Rhine.

The Chair of Communication Science works on questions of acceptance requirements and innovation management for new technology and mobility concepts and sustainable mobility systems.
