Aligning market needs with integrated sustainable transportation, logistics, and land-use planning: a unified approach
June 19-23, 2023 | 2nd Edition | Naples, Italy
Call for applications: Closed
The VIU Summer School on Advanced Transportation, Logistics and Supply Chain Management is an initiative of VIU in partnership with its member universities Iuav, Stellenbosch, and Tsinghua, in cooperation with the University of Naples Federico II. This edition will take place in Naples, Italy.
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).
