A EUTOPIA HACKATHON IN SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION

Students work together in teams to solve a problem/theme in sustainable transportation. Through the Hackathon process, the students will develop a business concept that will contribute to a more sustainable mobility and logistics. This process ends with a final pitch event where the students have to convince a jury composed of teachers and external stakeholders (eg. public transportation companies, traffic authorities, logistics providers, etc).

My main research focus is on urban goods transport and I provide academic leadership for the Urban Freight Platform a joint University of Gothenburg and Chalmers initiative supported by the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF).

My production of scientific publications has been focused on the area
of transport and sustainability. My PhD-dissertation in 2007 focused on: intermodal transports, environmental aspects of logistics, the supply and demand of transport services from a marketing perspective. Different aspects were highlighted such as segmentation of transport buyers in the marketing of intermodal transports, environmental aspects, cooperation between actors etc. I am also a reviewer for several logistics and transportation journals, especially focusing on sustainable logistics, intermodal transportation and goods distribution.My pedagogical experience is based on teaching and
