In Germany, the transport sector is responsible for nearly 20% of CO2 emissions along with noise and particulate matter pollution. Unfortunately, this trend, also measured at universities, shows no visible reduction. This is where a new BMBF joint project coordinated by the Green Office at Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) comes in. The DiNaMo project is looking for ways to digitally support and promote sustainable mobility at universities. The BMBF is funding DiNaMo with around 1.5 million euros.


As part of the project, measures to promote more sustainable mobility behaviour at the participating institutions are developed, piloted and successes and obstacles are recorded as part of an accompanying research. Many of the examples examined in DiNaMo are already established in practice, but pose different challenges, which often limits their use. The project addresses this interface to investigate the acceptance of various digital sustainable mobility tools and increase their use. 

For example, an app is being developed that can be used to organise carpooling within the university. The project aims at a broad participation of all members of the university in order to follow the overall whole-institution-approach. Staff and Students from all participating organisations can contribute to the project with their own ideas to increase sustainable mobility on and around the campusses. To reach that goal, workshops will be organised to develop visions, plan ideas, and promote the implementation of projects on campus.


The project views the universities in the Hannover Region as real-world laboratories for promoting sustainable mobility through digitalisation. The participating universities are taking on different areas of work. The following overview provides an overview of these:


The goal of the project is to derive ways for a transformation towards sustainable, climate-friendly mobility and to extend this to other university locations as well as the city and region of Hanover. To this end, the following sub-goals are being worked on in a participatory manner in a total of six work packages:

  • sub-goal 1

    ... the collection of data on the mobility behaviour of all status groups at the university and their continuous monitoring,

  • sub-goal 2

    ... the development and testing of selected measures and incentives to promote sustainable forms of mobility through digitalisation with the active participation of all status groups and their research,

  • sub-goal 3

    ... the integration of the topic into university events,

  • sub-goal 4

    ... the identification of institutional and status group-dependent potentials and obstacles in the integration and use of sustainable, digitally supported mobility offers and

  • sub-goal 5

    ... the transfer of concepts and principles to other institutions.
