Preliminary Program

The one-week Sustainable Transport summer school for PhD students is at its final stage of planning. The program will give the participants insights into sustainable solutions within the whole transport and mobility sector. The summer school aims at analyzing electric, hydrogen and bio-fuel solutions with from a value chain perspective. Through the course, we will look into specific challenges and solutions for freight transport as well as passenger transport.

Urban mobility challenges are different from challenges in more rural areas, in particular ICT and transport modes and solutions will differ with respect to location and community in question. The course will also cover socio-economic aspects and dilemmas.

The transport sector is subject for policy and regulative frameworks all over the world. We will cover some European and Norwegian regulations as well as discussing sustainability issues within the different value chains throughout the course.
