Global Challenges in Transport Programme: Smart Technologies and Changing Behaviours course (12 – 15 March 2019)

We have a few places still available on the Smart Technologies and Changing Behaviours course, to be held Tuesday 12th- Friday 15th March 2019, at Kellogg College, University of Oxford.

The course is part of our Global Challenges in Transport Programme, that provides researchers and practitioners with the necessary knowledge, skills and expertise to address the complexity associated with making transport sustainable. The programme is delivered by the Transport Studies Unit, at the University of Oxford.

The Smart Technologies and Changing Behaviours offers the latest thinking on how the current changes in technology and user behaviour can be understood, and what their interactions mean for the future of transport demand. It explores emerging contemporary mobility cultures in different global regions, the diffusion of smart technologies and new perspectives on their role, changing behaviours and energy reduction, and the sociocultural dynamics of behaviour change.

Our speakers include: Dr Tim Schwanen (TSU), Dr Debbie Hopkins (TSU), Prof John Miles (University of Cambridge), Prof Graham Parkhurst (UWE), Carolin Reiner (Behavioural Insights Team), Prof Benjamin Sovacool (University of Sussex), Prof Lorraine Whitmarsh (Cardiff University). The full programme and further details about all courses in the Global Challenges in Transport programme can be found at www.tsu.ox.ac.uk/course.
