Cooperation with India
How can we build sustainable solutions to the problem of urban mobility?
The project addresses different aspects of transportation with a focal point on urban mobility and health effects. The multidisciplinary character will offer an important arena for cooperation and exchange between the universities within research as well as education. The vision is to offer shared curricula between the three universities for students within selected master programs.
A big global challenge
MASTER THESIS EXCHANGE Gothenburg -Delhi
We are now taking the next step in the collaboration between University of Gothenburg, Chalmers University of Technology and Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi and offer the chance to exchange Master students between the universities for their Master thesis work. Would you like to be one of them?
Since a few years back University of Gothenburg and Chalmers have a co-operation with Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi (IITD). The idea of a collaboration started as the Indian professor Geetam Tiwari visited Gothenburg as a guest professor for sustainable urban transport. After her time here a memorandum of understanding was establish between the universities and researchers from the different universities have met during workshops and discussed different research questions related to the area of Transport, such as safety, urban planning, environment and health issues etc. Now the aim is to extend this collaboration by exchanging Master thesis students between the countries.
The goal is to send about ten students from Chalmers and Gothenburg University to Delhi during spring 2013 and to be able to receive as many students from India. Some ideas of possible topics will be available, but you as a student may also come up with your own idea. All subjects should relate to the area of transport in some way, but as the examples above shows it is a very broad field.
Some ideas that we received from professor Geetam Tiwari is to work on topics related to ongoing projects at IITD or that they plan to work on in the near future, such as:
· Monitoring of vehicle driving cycle and air pollution
· Detailed analysis of traffic crash data
· Biomechanics/crash modeling involving pedestrian and two wheelers
· Urban freight
· Travel patterns in low income households
Some assistance can be given regarding funding, to cover parts of your travel costs.

Please watch a video with Professor Geetam Tiwari as she speaks about challenges facing the urban mobility sector in India and the need of interdisciplinary thinking to solve the problems.
Workshops in Urban mobility and Health Effects - Improving urban sustainable access
Workshops on the theme urban mobility and health effects have been held and more will be held in the future. On this page, you will find summaries and other material from these workshops.
