Bachelor thesis in Curitiba
Paul Schilte, Bachelor student Civil Engineering shares knowledge on Dutch bicycle mobility in an interview on his Bachelor thesis project in Curitiba http://www.eleeze.com.br/transforme/paul-schilte-um-holandes-pedalando-em-curitiba. Paul is in Curitiba from April to June 2016 to do research for his bachelor thesis. He is working on a system to identify the quality of bicycle infrastructure in Curitiba and the most bikeable areas of the cities. In Curitiba there is much interest in the Dutch experience with cycling, as the Netherlands is a world leader in bicycle ownership and use. Paul is the first UT student to travel to Curitiba as part of the memorandum of understanding between Dutch institutions, including the University of Twente, and the city of Curitiba, to increase the potential for cycling in Curitiba (see http://multimidia.curitiba.pr.gov.br/2015/00172182.pdf). His thesis project is supervised by prof. Karst Geurs from the UT Centre from Transport Studies.
