CELSI's researchers Patrik Gažo and Monika Martišková, together with Thomas S.J. Smith from Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) of Munich published their paper titled "The transformation of the Slovak and Czech automotive industries: stakeholders' perspectives and barriers towards an ecological mobility industry". The article identifies and critically discusses barriers for transforming the automotive industry into an ecological mobility industry in Slovakia and Czechia from the point of view of key stakeholders.
Their exploratory research finds that transforming the Czech and Slovak automotive industries is currently constrained by the path-dependency of public institutions related to private transportation and by foreign ownership of the car companies, making it difficult for local actors to seize the initiative. Moreover, there is a lack of clarity amongst actors about the direction and aim of the mobility industry's transformation. The paper was published in the Journal of Automotive Technology and Management.
