From Horse to Porsche: innovations in transport and logistics

November 8, 2019 09.15 - 16.00 h

Containerization, from horse to Porsche, from 80 days around the world to just 24 hours: the world of transportation and logistics innovations is fascinating. This course gives an introductory overview of past, current and future transport innovations. Road pricing, public transport chip card, electric vehicles, biofuels, Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA), freight transport innovations, etc., will be used as examples.

This course aims to improve the participants’ knowledge of:

– Past, current, and future technological developments of transport innovations;

– Success and failure conditions of transport innovations;

– Technological and societal conditions for the implementation of transport innovations;

– Innovation theories and methodological approaches in order to give PhD candidates some baggage which they might use in their thesis. Because, let’s face it, most theses aim to contribute to something ‘new’.
