Research

Green, safe and efficient transport is a prerequisite for an attractive society that takes responsibility for human life and the nature that surrounds us. New knowledge that generates new solutions is a key issue.

Chalmers Transport Area of Advance covers a wide range of transport research with research skills from almost all departments. With the common driving force of enabling green, safe and efficient transportation the sustainable transport system the Area of Advance provides a meeting place and platform for research to meet the challenges of society.

Profile areas

The research is focused mainly on three profile areas – Sustainable Vehicle Technologies, Traffic Safety, and Transport Efficiency and Customer Adapted Logistics – connected by overall, relevant themes that are continously updated.

National and international research collaboration 

Researchers within the Transport Area of Advance are part of numerous academic collaborations with other universities in Sweden and Europe but also with universities outside Europe.
