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 or PhD program, and therefore have obtained a Bachelor's degree already. For practitioners and policymakers, this requirement does not apply.
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.
