Holistic Transport System

Vision: to contribute to the development of a reliable and resilient transport system that is sustainable in the environmental, economic and societal dimensions.

Multiscale, -actor and -issue approach

Implementing a Holistic Transport System in research requires the definition of interfaces between subsystems like rail and road. Through a multiscale, -actor and -issue approach, progress on one aspect is evaluated in the larger picture. Integrated and participatory simulation approaches are key tools.

Presentation of a Holistic Transport System

In the film below (around 8 min.), the research theme is presented (from KTH Transport Days 2016 ).

Research groups

Several research groups at KTH's departments/divisions in KTH's school organisation conduct research that fits in the Holistic Transport Systems.

Competence centres

EIT-KICs and SRAs

Also, research connected to Holistic Transport Systems is carried out at KTH through Strategic Research Areas (SRA)  and within collaboration in EIT-KICs related to transport .
