Reflecting on the Journey: A Conclusion to the DyMoN Webinar Series


With the wrap up of the DyMoN webinar series on interdisciplinary views on sustainable mobility, we can take the time to reflect on the insightful journey we have embarked upon together. Over the course of four sessions, our community of experts, participants, and contributors has delved deep into the complexities and opportunities of promoting sustainable urban mobility.

From the initial exploration of sustainable mobility perspectives to the innovative use of digital nudges and the impactful discussions on policy recommendations, each session has built upon the last to create a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and solutions in the field. Our exploration spanned across technical feasibility studies in Salzburg, to the creative expanses of the Uppsala hackathon, culminating in actionable insights and policy directions.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all participants who joined us from various corners of the globe, bringing with them enthusiasm and a willingness to engage in meaningful dialogue. Your active participation and insightful questions have been pivotal in enriching our discussions and outcomes.

A special thank you goes to our speakers and contributors, including Dr. Claudia Luger-Bazinger, David Leistner, Harris Stamatopoulos, Dr. Martin Loidl, and Sebastian Gatscha from trafficon, whose expertise and dedication have been instrumental in steering our conversations towards productive and innovative directions. We also thank Judith Stiekema and Saara Valtasaari frorm OASC for providing the technical framework to make the webinar session possible.

As we conclude this series, we are reminded of the power of collaboration and interdisciplinary approaches in addressing the complexities of sustainable mobility. The learnings and recommendations shared throughout our sessions provide a roadmap for future initiatives, underscoring the importance of integrating digital behavior change tools with traditional interventions, leveraging existing technologies, and involving stakeholders from the outset.

Though our webinar series has come to an end, the journey towards sustainable urban mobility continues. We are inspired by the motivation, creativity, and commitment demonstrated by our community and look forward to seeing how these insights are applied to make lasting impacts in cities around the world.

Thank you once again to everyone who contributed to the success of the DyMoN webinar series. Your engagement and contributions have not only made this series a success but have also paved the way for continued progress in sustainable urban mobility.

Successful fourth Session – The Webinar has come to an end


On 1st of February 2024 the fouth session of the DyMoN webinar series on an interdisciplinary view on sustainable mobility took place.

During this session 23 participants dove deeper into our two field tests and all the learnings we gathered in the project. David Leistner first presented the field test in Salzburg, Austria, which focused on proving the technical feasability of the DyMoN framework, as well as on provinding preliminary insights into the beavioural effectiveness of the nudges. Harris Stamatopoulos proceeded to present the DyMoN hackathon in Uppsala, Sweden which aimed to prove the flexibility of the DyMoN framework by applying it to different problems. Dr. Claudia Luger-Bazinger, as project manager finally presented 10 learnings and recommendations that came from the project. The first recommendations included:

  • to see Digital Behaviour Change tools as addition to “hard interventions”;
  • to leverage already existing apps and online communities if possible;
  • and to involve citizens, representatives and other stakeholders ideally already from the beginning of the campaign design process.

The Handbook Digital Nudging for sustainable mobility, that was the backbone of this webinar series, can be downloaded for free fom: salzburgresearch.at.


We thank our fantastic speakers for contibuting their unique expertise to these webinars. Additionally, we thank our motivated and interested participants for the attention and for helping to turn this series to a interesting and fruitful experience for all.

Productive workshops at OASC Conference 2024

On 16th-17th of January 2024 Open & Agile Smart Cities invited to the “Become Better Connected” conference in Rotterdam, to offer an opportunity to network with the international network of OASC. Focus of this conference was to introduce a more immersive, interconnected world connecting physical and digital spaces into one ecosystem.


At this years Open & Agile Smart Cities Conference, Dr. Claudia Luger-Bazinger and David Leistner had the honor of presenting the project DyMoN and our handbook to an interested audience. In two sessions of 45 min our participant got an insight into digital nudging for sustainable mobility. After getting an overview of how to design a digital nudging campaign with the help of our handbook, the participants had the opportunity to work through the process of developing effective behavioural interventions with their own examples under guidence of our experts.

Successful third DyMoN webinar


On 11th of January 2024 the third session of the DyMoN webinar series on an interdisciplinary view on sustainable mobility took place.

In the recent webinar, 37 participants explored the potent synergy of digital behavioral interventions and contextual insights in reshaping mobility decisions with our experts Dr. Martin Loidl and Sebastian Gatscha from trafficon. We highlighted the significance of situational variables, showcasing their integration into a Geographical Information System (GIS) for powerful “situation-aware nudges.”

The session demonstrated how this approach enhances intervention effectiveness by tailoring strategies to real-time contexts. Additionally, we unveiled the versatility of collected data, showcasing its integration into a user-friendly data dashboard displaying key indicators for sustainable mobility.

Additionally, we gave insight into the modular architecture of the IT-infrastructure behind the project, that made delivering the situation aware nudges technically posibble.

In essence, our webinar showcased the transformative impact of situational awareness on mobility behavior, emphasizing the practical applications of GIS integration and data utilization for sustainable solutions.

The third Webinar, Using data to support sustainable mobility behaviour, takes place on 11th of January 2024 from 14.00 to 15.00 (UTC+1) via Zoom.

In other fields, such as health, it is quite common to not only design digital behavioural interventions and nudges (e.g. motivational strategies), but to also combine them with information about the relevant context of a person to increase effectiveness. The basic idea behind this is that a person’s decisions and behaviour are also very dependent on the current context. By considering situational variables, we get a more realistic picture of a person’s current context, and in turn, the behavioural interventions and nudges have a greater chance of being effective. Within this webinar, we show how situational aspects relevant for mobility behaviour can be digitally represented and integrated in a Geographical Information System (GIS) to be further used for “situation-aware nudges”. Moreover, we will show how the collected data can also be used to feed it into multiple products, such as a data dashboard that displays multiple indicators for sustainable mobility in a visual, focused format.

DyMoN Webinar Series: Session two coming up!


DyMoN webinars for an interdisciplinary view on motivating sustainable urban mobility

Within the project “Dynamic Mobility Nudge” (DyMoN), we bring together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines to support people in making sustainable choices when it comes to urban mobility. Join us during upcoming (remote) webinars for an interdisciplinary view on motivating sustainable urban mobility. This free webinar series will be accompanied by the handbook “Digital nudging for sustainable mobility” (available for free download at salzburgresearch.at).

For more Information about the Webinar Series please see DyMoN Webinar Series

The second Webinar, Digitally-enabled behaviour change for sustainable mobility, takes place on 7th of December 2023 from 14.00 to 15.00 (UTC+1) via Zoom.

When it comes to promoting sustainable mobility, local decision-makers (e.g. city representatives, transport planners and providers) have the choice between two options: “Hard measures”, like introducing new policies, infrastructure and bans, on their own are not always effective and cannot be implemented in every situation. Therefore, “soft measures”, behavioural interventions or “nudges” that operate without restrictions or bans, have risen to prominence as a viable complement to policy measures and to support mobility infrastructure usage. In this webinar, we are talking about soft measures in the form of digital tools that can help in changing mobility behaviour, like smartphone apps. You surely have encountered this concept before – are you wearing a smartwatch right now or do you have a smartphone app that helps you with physical activity? Then you have a first understanding of digitally enabled behaviour change! We can transfer this idea to mobility. For this, we are talking about models of behaviour change that help us in a deeper understanding of human behaviour and how behavioural interventions and nudges can be built on them. Further, we show how digital tools can help in shaping mobility behaviour and discuss best practice examples.

Successful first Webinar

First session “An interdisciplinary view on sustainable urban mobility behaviour


On 16th of November the first session of the DyMoN webinar series on an interdisciplinary view on sustainable mobility was successful. 38 participants engaged actively with our two speakers, Dr. Claudia Luger-Bazinger (psychologist) and Dr. Martin Loidl (geographer) who gave two uniquely different perspectives on sustainable mobility from their respective fields. Our participants learned of the so called COM-B model of behaviour (Michie, van Stralen, & West, 2011) and how it can be adapted for mobility behaviour, as well as how to develop effective behavioural interventions. From the geographical perspective they learned of the origins of and different aspects of sustainable mobility to keep in mind when thinking about how to improve the conditions for the use if sustainable modes of transport.

The Handbook Digital Nudging for sustainable mobility was presented as accompanying literature for the serminar series. If interested, the handbook can be downloaded for free from salzburgresearch.at
