Vision

The research ambition of etrans is to support the organisation and strengthening of the research area at Kolding School of Design and to ensure the initiation of an ambitious cooperation with research groups within design, consumer conduct, transport, and management nationally as well as internationally. Our ambition is to contribute by introducing new approaches to systems design – that is collective systems which require significant coordination of product and business development. In the nature of things, this calls for a design platform which is appealing and flexible to all. This requires an integrated design and places demands on the way in which the design presents itself.

Objective

etrans wishes to raise research standards for all of Kolding School of Design – and thus support the school’s efforts to become accredited as a research institution.

etrans wishes to initiate cooperation with relevant national and international research groups with the aim of ensuring as many publications as possible based on the project’s empirical studies.

Research publications will ensure that the project’s research results are communicated widely both nationally and internationally.

Research issues

A:

The development of the implementation of a desirable infrastructure for electric cars in Denmark assumes that the many private and public players – utility companies, charging station hosts, equipment manufacturers, municipalities, etc. - work on the basis of a commonly designed platform.

This raises a number of relevant questions regarding research:

How can such a design platform be established?

How flexible must such a design platform be?

How can a common platform be generated?

How does it become visible to potential users as well as involved manufacturers and facilitators of the electric car system?

Throughout the three phases of the etrans project, different scenarios for user and stakeholder involvement are set up.

Throughout these processes, the people who have participated – not least the companies and representatives of the public institutions – have achieved the inspiration and experience which will constitute the basis for the actions when designing the infrastructure of the electric car.

What are the organisation cultural (and management) barriers preventing the parties of the electric car project from making innovative initiatives and acting progressively in the development of the infrastructure of the electric car?

What is required from the design and the parties in order to achieve an orchestrated effort?
