2012 Winter Sustainable Transportation Seminar Series


The Sustainable Transportation Seminar series is designed to foster a community of faculty, researchers and students around the theme of sustainable transportation policy, systems and solutions. One of the main goals of the seminar is to prepare and inspire students for their thesis.

The presenter has 20 minutes to present a seminar in a chosen topic. We welcome work in progress or in formulation stages. Presentation is followed by 40 minutes of open discussion among attendants.

The seminar was initiated by Dr Lee Schipper, senior researcher at PEEC and prominent figure in the world of sustainable transportation. He passed away on August 16th 2011 and is dearly missed!
