Aalto University Summer School on Transportation has established itself as a premier institution offering innovative and practical approaches to understand and solve timely transport problems both in developed and developing countries. It presents an intensive learning experience to transport professionals and graduate students of varying backgrounds.

The 2015 theme will be Transportation in the Digital Age. The theme is a recognition that the concept of mobility as service, with or without autonomous vehicles, is likely to transform virtually all aspects of the transport sector functioning. The theme, in which Finland is a pathbreaker, continues the Summer School's founding concept that transportation has a wider scope than movement of persons and goods. It aims to support mobility and access, sustainable economic growth, and to provide an attractive living environment for the wellbeing of all citizens.

The week-long Summer School will be an experience. Timely issues and approaches for solving them will be presented by renowned experts. The lectures and workshops are designed to encourage participation.

The Summer School 2015 will take place in August 10–14 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 about Transportation in the Digital Age. A site visit and workshops allow for participation and exchange of experiences.
