Helsinki Summer School in Transportation has changed name. It is now Aalto University Summer School on Transportation. In the past six years the Summer School has established itself as a premier institution offering innovative and practical approaches to understand and solve complex transport problems. It presents an intensive learning experience to transport professionals and graduate students of varying backgrounds. Following the very successful Summer Schools in the past six years, the 2013 theme will be Land Use and Transportation. The theme continues the Summer School's founding concept that transportation has a much wider scope than movement of persons and goods, but aims to support sustainable economic growth, improve physical surroundings, and provide an attractive living environment for the wellbeing of all citizens. Integration of land use and transport planning coupled with citizen consensus has become an essential approach to move toward these goals. The week-long Summer School will be an experience. Real world issues and analytical approaches for solving them will be presented and hands-on guidance provided by renowned experts.
The Summer School 2013 will take place from August 12 to August 16 on the beautiful campus of Aalto University, in Otaniemi , Espoo, Finland. The five-day course will bring transport professionals and advanced graduate students together to analyze and discuss issues in Land Use and Transportation. The class includes a site visit and group exercises to apply the concepts and approaches in real world transport planning situations.
