Transport Area of Advance

Develops new knowledge to meet transport-related challenges in accordance with the UN's global goals for sustainable development.

Transport Area of Advance helps to stimulate multidisciplinary collaboration between various departments at Chalmers but also external collaboration with academia, industry, and society.

The vision of the Transport Area of Advance (AoA)/SFO Transport is: Sustainable, safe, efficient, and inclusive transport systems. We reach this by research excellence and long-term interdisciplinary collaboration between academia, industry, and society.

Examples of academic partnerships are the Mobility, Logistics and Automotive Research Centre (MOBI) at Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Tongji University, and Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) at University of Michigan.

The Area of Advance's activities include research, education, and utilisation. University of Gothenburg is an integrated part of Area of Advance Transport.

The research is organised in three profiles:

  • Transport technology
  • Traffic and transport safety
  • Logistics and personal mobility

Our research areas, centres, and available infrastructure in Transport.
