Defining solutions for reducing the logistic cost in cities
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.
The transport digitalization observatory, impulsed by the Centre for Transportation Studies for the Western Mediterranean (CETMO), has been presented in a session inaugurated by Damià Calvet, councelor of the Territory and Sustainability Department of Catalonia.
Our Project Manager, Eglantina Dani, participates in a round table discussion about Mobility behavior data analysis: current trends and future opporunities.
CENIT will participate in LASH-FIRE, a European project on fire risk prevention in the loading of RO-RO ships together with important European shipping companies and research centers.
