Description

Lund is the University city of southern Sweden in the dynamic region of Oresund with both Malmö, Copenhagen and Helsingborg close by.

With its 1000 years of existence, Lund is one of Sweden’s oldest cities. Lund is one of Scandinavia's oldest cities that boasts one of the world's top one hundred highest ranked universities. Here, tradition and innovation meet to produce world-class research. Inventions like the artificial kidney, medical ultrasound, pacemaker and Bluetooth are all examples of things developed in Lund, which opened new opportunities for millions of people around the world. 

The venue of the course is at Trivector in Lund, just located by the train station in central Lund. Malmo is easily accessible with 15 min train ride. Copenhagen can also be reached by train (30-45 mins).

Course Objective

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.

About - Long Description

This course is aimed at transport professionals who are interested in improving their capacity regarding how to manage new innovations in the transport sector in a manner that supports long-term sustainability principles.

Transport is a highly fossil-fuel dependent sector and needs to change radically in order to decarbonise. At the same time, there are many new innovations appearing such as new micro-mobility services, new fuel types, shared mobility solutions, autonomous vehicles etc which can radically change the transport sector. Many innovations promise to improve mobility and support sustainability goals- but do they really? And how should we deal with these solutions?

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 these questions.

Background

In the transport field, we always hear of new ideas that are going to revolutionise the transport system: from hyperloops and self-driving cars to Mobility as a Service and electric cargo bike delivery services. Some of these innovations can play a role in supporting the shift to a low-carbon transport system, but how should we address them?

What we offer:

The course offers a mix of lectures, workshops, site visits and the chance to exchange with peers. We focus on practical application of theory to support the following:

  • Understanding of trends and technological innovations in the transport sector
  • Understanding of the importance of transport for climate action
  • Understanding the basics of long-term planning and decision making within complexity and how this can be applied to own challenges
  • Learning about different methods that can help to steer transport innovations to follow societal goals
  • Learning about different tools & methods to understand impacts of future technologies

Coaches & Expert

Dr. Anna Clark

Expert

Anna has worked for over 15 years in the transport field in research and innovation projects on the European level and in Sweden. Her primary interest is in working in sustainability issues in transport, and she leads the area Climate, Energy and Environment at Trivector Traffic. She brings to her work her multi-disciplinary educational background covering philosophy, mathematics, ecology and transport, and experience living in different cultures. She is particularly interested in how innovations in the transport sector can be applied and transferred in practice, and how to support stakeholder engagement to achieve this, often focusing from the public authority perspective.

Marco Valente
