The course aimed to provide theoretical guidance and methods to better evaluate and understand changing travel behaviour, in particular cycling, from a multidisciplinary perspective. PhD students can build on the current knowledge and research approaches provided for their own research.

The course consisted of interactive lectures, discussions, practical training, as well as presentations from the students themselves, and field trips to Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
