Climate-KIC course: Future of Transport – How do we deal with it?

Sustainable transport

Are you a transport professional who is interested in understanding how best to deal with the fast-changing urban transport landscape while ensuring the shift towards zero-carbon urban mobility? Then this is the course for you! With a mix of lectures, workshops, site visits and the chance to exchange with peers this EIT Climate-KIC course will provide you with tools and methods that will give practical support in dealing with long-term planning in complexity.

About the course

This course will be about how to manage the introduction of transport innovations from a public authority perspective. What mechanisms exist to test innovation, how can we evaluate the benefits of something that hasn’t been implemented yet, and what can public authorities do to support private companies in developing their innovations? This focuses very much on issues of governance and policy and understanding the role of the local authority in leading development in the right direction.

This course is led by Trivector, but supported by Climate-KIC.
