FIS IV - Research Information System IV (Forschungs-Informations-System IV)

The aim of FIS is to support the transfer of knowledge between research and practice. In this sense, FIS provides valuable assistance for advising policymakers, administrators and the business community by providing fact-based documentation of the current state of knowledge. For this purpose, the knowledge base in the information system is always prepared in a timely manner. FIS is easy to access, application-oriented and based on concrete questions.

Description

The Research Information System for Mobility and Transport (FIS) is a research project funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) to develop an Internet-based knowledge platform. The focus is on the continuous support of knowledge transfer between science, politics and practice in the fields of mobility, traffic, regional planning and digital infrastructure.

In addition to our institute, two other TUHH institutes are involved in the project (Institute for Transport Planning and Logistics, Institut of Business Logistics and General Management). We were jointly awarded the contract to maintain the specialist area "Globalised Freight Transport and Logistics". The MLS provides technical and editorial support for the following 11 knowledge maps and their approximately 280 synthesis reports:

  • Dangerous goods logistics in the field of conflicting requirements
  • Developments in container shipping,
  • Empty container logistics,
  • Environmental and climate protection in maritime shipping,
  • Influence of wind turbines on ocean shipping,
  • Long freight trains: Potential benefits and obstacles to implementation
  • Maritime competences in Germany,
  • Maritime shipping,
  • Maritime traffic in the Baltic Sea,
  • Seaports,
  • The rail freight market.
