Target group

The course welcomes all students, practitioners and policymakers interested in urban logistics. Multi-disciplinary participation is strongly welcomed. Students should be attending at least a Master program, and therefore have obtained a Bachelor's degree already. For practitioners and policymakers, this requirement does not apply.

Study credits (ECTS)

The course values 3 ECTS credits. Those wishing to collect credits, will need to prepare, during the second course week, a presentation by the last day of that week, as well as a scientific paper assignment by two weeks after the course end. The presentation is meant as a structuring of ideas and a first output of the assignment work. The subsequent paper is to thoroughly report on the research findings, with a clear introduction, problem statement, approach, findings and conclusions. The assignment is group work, and groups as well as topics will be fixed during the first course days.

The first course week can also be followed stand-alone. The tariff does not change.

To include the credits in the curriculum at the home institution, participants need an agreement with the responsible person at their university.
