Welcome to KTH Transport Platform

KTH Transport Platform

KTH possesses both broad and in-depth competence within key areas of transport research, areas such as vehicle and railway engineering, flight technology, civil engineering, alternative fuels, traffic technology and intelligent transport systems, transport politics and economics, sustainable transport and city systems plus human technology systems within aeronautics and other types of transport.

Transport Research at KTH = 885 researchers, 41 research groups and 18 research centers

The Transport field also brings in other prioritised areas at KTH such as ICT, materials and energy. The aim of this platform is to further strengthen the KTH research profile within this field through improved synergies and expanded crossborder research programmes, both at KTH and with other academic and industrial partners in Sweden and abroad.
