The Transport Studies Unit at the University of Oxford is currently accepting applications for the Infrastructure, Development and Finance course, to be held Tuesday 6 September - Friday 9 September, at Kellogg College, University of Oxford. The course is part of our Global Challenges in Transport programme, which provides researchers and practitioners with the necessary knowledge, skills and expertise, supported by the latest research evidence, to address the complexity associated with making transport sustainable.
This course explores the relationships between transport systems, infrastructure, investment, and economic development within developed and developing countries. It examines and evaluates the economic, social and environmental contribution of a range of different transport investments projects, including those associated with 'mega-projects', megacities, poverty and equity, labour market access and agglomeration economies.
Key speakers include Professor Naomi Brookes (University of Leeds); Professor Jon Shaw (University of Plymouth); Satyaki Raghunath (Dubai Airports); Christian Wolmar (Independent Transport Commentator). The full programme is available at http://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/programmes/execed/gct/infrastructure-development-finance .
The course fees cover all materials, 21 contact hours accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, 3 nights’ en-suite accommodation at Kellogg College, and all meals and refreshments during the course (including a formal networking dinner on the first evening). Fees are as follows:
• Private Sector: £3,500
• Public Sector / Academic: £1,500
• PhD: £500
We are able to offer partial scholarships to a limited number of participants, as well as discounts to those attending several Global Challenges in Transport courses.
