TRANSW 2023 Symposium

TRANSW 2023 Symposium 

Novel research presented at TRANSW symposium by our rCITI team.

Our topics aim to tackle present-day and future societal needs like pre-disaster self evacuation, facilitating household decision making with land use planning, making ethical decision in transport, and many others.
