The researchers within Transport Area of Advance is involved in teaching activities outside Chalmers as well, for example tigether with University of Gothenburg but also with other national and international universities.

In order to connect education with research and innovation, the Transport Area of Advance also encourages students to participate in differnt student competitions and projects. 

SAFER Insight is the first comprehensive portal in advanced traffic safety education on an international level. The purpose of SAFER Insight is to provide the student or professional, with courses and seminars in vehicle and traffic safety.

The courses provided are arranged by SAFER Insight training providers, who are selected from leading providers in the field of traffic safety research and education. The importance of the subject is illustrated by a simple fact: Death caused by road accidents is the only item on the WHO’s list of the ten primary causes of death worldwide that is not classed as a disease

The Chalmers Formula Student (CFS) is the largest student engineering competition in the world. CFS and FSUK are excellent platforms for marketing Chalmers, not only within Sweden, but also worldwide, helping to increase the University’s profile in Europe and Asia. Their success was achieved through a number of factors. The education provided at CFS is student centered, whereby the students direct the learning and teachers are the providers of guidelines and frame work to ensure the successful completion of the project. CFS also works in close collaboration with the Automotive industry in Sweden and abroad, which means that CFS gains access to state of the art facilities and knowledge. CFS Graduates are highly respected and sought after within industry therefore our industrial partners’ gain access to highly motivated Graduates with relevant skills. At CFS, creating a race car is simply the carrot use to draw in the students, our main aim is to Deliver the Engineers of Tomorrow.

The Chalmers Eco Marathon is a contest which was launched by Shell to increase interest in science and technology in young people. The contest is to design and build a small vehicle (in the context better than "car") to carry a human being of least 50 kg as far as possible on one liter of gasoline. The students who have been involved in the design and construction of the vehicles come from a number of Master's Programmes at Chalmers.

Challenge Lab is based on a challenge-driven approach, where stakeholders from academia, government and industry collaborate around complex issues in striving for a sustainable society. In Challenge Lab, with its set of perspectives and methodologies, students will be placed in the driving seat, being the change agents, to develop and demonstrate potential transformative solutions in collaboration with stakeholders and with other Master students with knowledge and backgrounds form a variety of subject areas. All with the purposes to achieve stronger collaborations in taking on the challenges for a sustainable society.

Resenärskampen is a recurring competition with the purpose to find new solutions and innovations so that more people use public transports. Anyone /any person may participate in the competition by presenting their best ideas for sustainable transport solutions. Chalmers researchers and teachers will be involved as experts and the organisations involved are Västra Götalandsregionen (kollektivtrafikssekretariatet), Västtrafik, Center for Environment and Sustainability and IMCG.
