Enquiry procedure:

  • You send the TransportNET secretariat a proposal first, of about one page, including objective, research question, approach, and expected type of outcomes. Please also add a CV of yours.  
  • The secretariat will then check whether any supervisor is willing and has the available capacity to guide you on that topic.
  • Most TransportNET institutions require that first, a doctoral program is followed. You will be informed on whether that is required in your case.
