The association CAPTN e.V. aims to strengthen the various activities of the CAPTN initiative in one organization, to create synergies between the projects and to support the network in the long term. The association serves as a common platform for communication, external representation and scientific exchange for the initiative and association members. At the same time, it is easier to create structures under a common, fixed brand umbrella, to pursue goals and to establish the sustainable mobility chain in society.

The association was founded in December 2022. The founding members include Kiel University, Anschütz GmbH, Addix GmbH, Economic Development Agency for Kiel, Kiel University of Applied Sciences, TKMS, Muthesius Art University and Kiel Science Hub.

Dirk Nowotka (Kiel University) was elected the first chairman; his deputy is Björn Schwarze (Addix). Werner Kässens acts as treasurer.
