Our vision on the scientific program

Economy on Wheels. Fast changes, slow structures. The central question during the HVTT15 is how to integrate disruptive technological and socio-economic developments that affects road freight transport in existing structures: ageing infrastructure, historical grown cities, established market structures and social order and ingrained habits. The aim is to adapt the road freight transport system to an increasing social and economic complexity, against technological opportunities, and with significant safety and environmental constraints. It is clear that solutions from a single perspective are no longer considered to be sufficient. A multidisciplinary approach is a necessity.

The organizers of the HVTT15 aim for a symposium program that creates the conditions for a fruitful exchange of knowledge and experience, across the boundaries of traditional scientific and policy disciplines. The selection of symposium topics and the composition of the scientific committee reflect this ambition.
