WELCOME TO CENIT

The Center for Innovation in Transport (CENIT) is a research group of the International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE). CENIT was created in 2001 as a public consortium between the Government of Catalonia (Departament de Territori i Sostenibilitat) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-Barcelona Tech (UPC) to centralize expertise in transportation innovation. CENIT became a member of CIMNE in 2017.

CENIT has been consolidated at a local and national level to promote research on transportation and logistics and a think tank on the mobility issues currently influencing our society.

Our mission at CENIT is to build the next generation of solutions in global transport

Since its creation in 2001 CENIT has strived to provide cutting edge research and technology solutions to both the public and private sectors while providing thought leadership through contributions to scientific and academic journals as well as global events.

Our work areas are include Urban Mobility, Port logistics and Maritime Transport, and Transport Infrastructure Management with an emphasis on transport economics, operations research, travel behavior, sustainability, transport policy, demand analysis, and ICT.
