Month: December 2022

Save the Date: DyMoN Summer School

From June 27th to July 6th 2023 the Summer School “GIS and psychology meet for behavioural change in mobility: Innovative digital interventions for sustainable mobility” will be held in Salzburg, Austria.

The key focus of the workshop are interdisciplinary methods that support the design, planning, and evaluation of strategies directed at promoting sustainable mobility. Masters and PhD Students from urban and transport planning studies, behavioural economics, psychology, sociology, geoinformatics, geography and similar fields are welcomed to join us. The school is organized by the University of Salzburg and Salzburg Research together with the DyMoN project consortium.

The program will be split into three sections:

  • Sustainable mobility: mobility paradigms, spatial aspects of mobility, inter-relations between environmental factors and mobility behaviour, planning for and promoting sustainable mobility
  • Basics of GIS: spatial data models and representations, considerations of spatial data collection and ethics, methods of spatial analysis and geovisualisation to assist transport modelling and planning
  • Digitally enabled behaviour change: Models of behaviour change, enabling behaviour change in the digital environment through various approaches (e.g., gamification, nudging, community aspects), behaviour change techniques, designing effective digital interventions for sustainable mobility, holistic approaches to behaviour change.

The full program and application information will follow in January 2023.

Successful first Expert Roundtable on nudging for sustainable mobility

On December 7th, DyMoN project lead Salzburg Research invited 12 experts from five countries, with a diverse background in psychology, mobility and mobile app development, for presenting first results of the DyMoN project in an online expert roundtable. Dr. Claudia Luger-Bazinger gave an overview of the nudging repository that can be used for motivating sustainable mobility choices within a digital environment. Following this input, the experts had the opportunity to discuss in detail strengths, challenges and possible improvements of this digital behaviour change approach in breakout sessions. With this valuable information, the DyMoN consortium can further develop the nudging repository and future results of the project. In addition, we could give an outlook on exciting opportunities to be further involved with the project in 2023, such as the DyMoN Summer School in Salzburg (more information to follow). A special thank you to all our experts for taking the time to discuss and connect!
