In the Transport division our research targets transport behaviour and to finding solutions for an effective design and regulation of the transport sector.


We focus on improving mobility in relation to the three main challenges within this sector: 1) climate and environment 2) traffic congestion 3) traffic safety. We put numbers on traffic and the economic societal effects using statistical analysis of transport behaviour. We conduct public sector consultancy for the Ministry of Transport and Housing and collaborate with traffic companies and traffic institutions.

The Transport division is divided into six sections:
