The State Prize for Mobility is oriented in line with targets of the Austrian overall transport plan and has four categories, addressing all involved stakeholders. Submissions ranging from internationally successful products to specialised solutions for niche products, give an insight into the wide range of skills and the readiness of Austrian enterprises and research institutions for networking.
The State Prize for Mobility 2015 was awarded to:

The “Enns Multimodal”-project bundles the international transport flow of the Container Terminal Enns and links them with Europe’s major seaports and economic centers. The expansion and modernisation of the terminal in the Port of Enns creates additional trimodal transshipment options for export business in one of the strongest economic regions in central Austria. New cranes, rail tracks and storage area for containers help to intermesh railway, waterway and road transport and connect the region with the international transport network. Neutral handling, a service-oriented access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and a strong international partner network guarantee sustainable access to global markets.
