RSA FG researcher presented ASTUS project results in Pongau

After the results of the EU Interreg project ASTUS – Alpine Smart Transport and Urbanism Strategies were presented at the Final Conference in Ljubljana in mid-October, the Austrian project partners Research Studio iSPACE of RSA FG and SIR presented the ASTUS results to regional and local actors at the “KLAR! workshop” (Climate Change Adaptation Model Region Pongau) in Bischofshofen.

In order to enable and attract low-CO2 everyday mobility in the Alpine region, the ASTUS project developed innovative principles, tools and strategies for mobility and settlement planning and derived recommendations for action.

Together with the Pongau Regional Association, the Salzburg Transport Association and the State of Salzburg, the Research Studio iSPACE of the RSA FG developed spatial scenarios and measures to make the commuting to the regional hospital St. Veit im Pongau more attractive. Potential measures are:

  • an improvement of the public transport to the Landesklinik
  • the promotion of mobility interfaces
  • the coordination of mobility offers with shift work and
  • attractive ticketing and other accompanying measures such as awareness raising and company mobility management.

Finally, Thomas Prinz presented the functionalities of the MORECO household computer, which has been further developed in the ASTUS project. “With this tool, individual living and mobility costs as well as, for the first time, CO2 costs of mobility can be calculated dynamically for the entire province of Salzburg depending on the future place of residence. In future, the calculator will be available to all communities as well as citizens”, said Thomas Prinz at the KLAR! workshop in Bischofshofen.

The ASTUS project was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund within the Interreg Alpine Space programme
