The Department for Urban and Transport Planning (ISB) works both in fundamental theoretical research and in applied research and additionally offers consultations in politics, management, and businesses. Research covers all aspects of influencing and controlling urban, regional and transportation planning – from the international to the federal and regional levels as well as down to individual citizens and companies.

The ISB focuses on mobility research and management, urban planning, transport modelling and controlling in urban and regional environments, and urban and regional planning (specializing in adaptation strategies for demographic change and climate change).

We’re available for scientific presentations. If you’re interested, please don’t hesitate to contact our office for further information.
