energy-efficient mobility research campus
The research campus of energy-efficient mobility, established in 2012 on the site of the former International University in Bruchsal near Karlsruhe, is a constantly growing R&D cooperation. It is the goal of the research campus to foster a common centre for efficient mobility. Participants are the Hochschule Karlsruhe, represented by the IEEM institute (Institute of Energy Effi -cient Mobility), industry, and research partners. The type and manner of cooperation is individually organised and depends on various factors. This addresses small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as larger suppliers and OEMs.The Hochschule Karlsruhe`s IEEM institute specifically concentrates on the functional development of mobility systems, and energy systems of mobility as a whole. Due to the con-tinually increasing integration of functions and intelligence in vehicles and its connectivity, the necessary skills for energy effi ciency are interdisciplinary and being addressed by the IEEM by three of its professors, especially in the fields of functional and software development, in electronics, e-drives and power-train concepts. In addition, the tight cooperation with the master studies "Sustainable mobility for automotive engineering" at the University of Applied Sciences, Karlsruhe, leads to a suitable concept to integrate students and young professionals at the research campus.
