Invitation to a virtual Research Forum about Informal Public Transport, Wednesday, January 26, 2022.
The VREF invites you to a virtual Research Forum on January 26, 2022, in which the main findings of the bibliometric study on informal transport and mobility will be shared.
In June 2021, The Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF) launched its new programme on Informal Public Transport (IPT). As part of its process of shaping the future work in the programme, VREF commissioned a global bibliometric study on informal transport and shared mobility. The study was carried out under the leadership of Professor Roger Behrens, University of Cape Town, and completed in December 2021.
VREF would like to invite you to a virtual VREF Research Forum on January 26, 2022 in which the main findings of the bibliometric study on informal transport and mobility will be shared. Following that, well known experts in the field will share their feedback on the study and provide their thoughts on key research within the area IPT.
The research forum will also provide opportunities for the audience to raise questions and share their views through interactive polls.
