Martin Russ is a city planner by profession and an innovation enthusiastic at heart. Working in the field of mobility solutions for more than 25 years, he is excited to see many of the crazy concepts of the past become a reality today – sharing, micro mobility, data led governance, experimental frameworks and mobility labs up to e-mobility and automated vehicles. As director of AustriaTech, he supports cities in incorporating those transformational possibilities.
Martin is also a member of the EU Mission Board on Climate Neutral Cities, where he focuses on tackling this challenge in reality and supporting cities to be the synergetic core of the needed transformation. Besides that he´s dealing with a new supportive legal frame for experiments as well as on new business opportunities through a new and more life-style oriented sector coupling in the mobility eco-system.
