12 Oct 2015 - Public transport partial and expensive solution to climate problems
Investments in public transport are a relatively expensive way to make transportation more sustainable. Focusing on electric transport, teleworking or building in the vicinity of train stations is much more effective. Increasing frequencies is a more efficient investment in public transport than constructing more Park and Rides. This becomes apparent from research performed by Ties Brands of Goudappel Coffeng, for the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research. He hopes to obtain his doctoral degree at the University of Twente on 15 October.
8 Oct 2015 - UT introduces MOOC in Supply Chain Innovation
On 11 January 2016 the University of Twente will launch the online course Supply Chain Innovation. As part of this free course, participants from all over the world will learn how they can improve the chain they are working in with relatively easy means, as well as make it more sustainable. Key themes of the course are today’s supply chain practice, the latest academic knowledge and relevant innovations from the field of ICT. Innovating supply chains requires out-of-the-box thinking. The boundaries between disciplines, departments, companies and countries need to be overcome in order to improve the chain. The course therefore focuses on professionals and students who want to look beyond disciplines such as production, distribution, marketing and finance. Participants of the MOOC gain insight into the network of activities from production to customer. This supply chain perspective is where the most opportunities for innovation can be found.
