Presentación de tesis doctoral al IIT Alessandro Danesin 27/04/2017: Modelling and Assessment of Sustainability in Transport Policies
Transport has always been an essential factor in the socio-economic relationships allowing for moving goods and people. Historically, the introduction of the steam engine rst and the internal combustion engine later radically changed the technological framework in which people and products move. It improved the speed of connection and changed the andscape. Nevertheless, this new system changed the energy needs shifting the demand from animal power to fossil fuels, such as coal for railroad trains and boats, to an increasing penetration of oil products in the entire transport sector. This thesis studies the modelling and assessment of sustainability in transport policies.
