Smart & sustainable | The technology network for mobility and logistics

In the age of electromobility and IT logistics, we work with our partners and members to find intelligent answers to upcoming social and technological challenges. We help to secure existing competitive advantages and create new ones.

Through broad networking, the procurement of project partners, contacts to international networks and the initiation and promotion of research projects, we sustainably shape the innovative fields of mobility and logistics.

What we do

Critical infrastructures such as mobility and logistics are subject to constant change. Technologies are disappearing and new ones are emerging, and socio-economic contexts are adapting. This increases the pressure and need for action from companies, public institutions and the competitiveness of entire regions.

We are tackling these challenges as a community, creating solutions together and working on innovative projects.

The Cluster Mobility & Logistics, based in the TechBase Regensburg, is managed by R-Tech GmbH, a subsidiary of the City of Regensburg.

Key aspects

A special feature of the cluster is the interdisciplinary positioning of its partners and members from the mobility and logistics sectors. Science and research are an essential part of this.

As a technology cluster, our primary goal is to develop projects that we promote and advance through the networking of our network partners.

The Cluster Mobility & Logistics focuses on the following topics:
