“Implementation of sustainable and smart mobility needs magnitude and changes in lifestyles and not technofixed hypes and uncoordinated and far too many pilots!”

Research profile

Hans Jeekel is a Full Professor in the section of Technology, Innovation & Society of the School of Innovation Sciences at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), and holds the Chair for Societal Aspects of Smart Mobility. His key areas of expertise are urban and rural planning, vehicle technology and transport technology, and traffic and transport studies.

Hans’ main focus areas are the social and societal aspects of smart mobility technologies and solutions (at vehicle level and journey level), multimodality in transport, new and advanced urban mobility systems in the developed and the developing world, and equity in transport. Hans believes that designing and developing technological applications should be more strongly linked to the major societal issues relating to mobility. In his opinion, researchers should adopt a different approach to mobility, taking into account the whole range of issues relating to implementation.
