Aligning market needs with integrated sustainable transportation, logistics, and land-use planning: a unified approach
June 28 – July 3, 2021
Call for applications: December 5, 2020 – March 7, 2021 via the VIU website
The VIU Summer School on Advanced Transportation, Logistics and Supply Chain Management is an initiative of VIU in partnership with its member universities Iuav, Ca’ Foscari, the University of Padova, KU Leuven, Stellenbosch, and Tsinghua, in cooperation with the University of Naples Federico II.
The program develops an original comprehensive approach, bringing into focus the need for synergic engagement among policy-makers, planners, and private and public actors in transport, logistics and supply chain management.
The participants will explore the latest innovations in technology, business models, and policy-making. Through rigorous and non-conventional empirical and theoretical approaches we will explore emerging trends, strategic scenarios, IT and modelling tools (including demo labs), methods, case studies, and applied projects, and discuss how these can support business and policy-makers, achieve environmental sustainability, and socio-economic efficiency. Disruptive digital trends will be confronted with the physical impacts on the territory (“bits vs bricks” perspective).
