Knowledge sharing

In a field of expertise that is both complex and constantly evolving, there are few permanent or definitive truths. As a result, TRANSITEC gives paramount care to knowledge building and sharing – internally, but also with a wider circle of partners.

In terms of knowledge sharing, we are committed to:

  • preparing or contributing to the writing of methodological or technical guidelines, norms, etc.;
  • training the next generation of experts, internally as well as in the academic world;
  • building the capacities of public administrations and agencies through specialized seminars.

Guidelines and technical standards

Over the decades, TRANSITEC has contributed to a number of guidelines and technical standards, in order to:

  • share knowledge, and
  • improve the design and management of transport systems

For example, we have designed guidelines that:

  • improve the commercial speed for STIF (Ile-de-France) and STIB (Brussels)
  • calculate the size of traffic circles in Switzerland
  • provide for the development and operations of the urban roadway in Morocco
  • direct the development of sustainable urban mobility in Africa (SSATP).

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and training

TRANSITEC is committed to academic teaching and Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

By teaching at several outstanding schools (such as EPFL, INSA, HES-SO, and EAMAU), we contribute to training new generations of engineers in transport and mobility.

TRANSITEC also teaches professional seminars designed for managers and/or government employees, as part of their continuing education programmes. These are designed for a specific audience, usually at their request.

In one example, in 1998 TRANSITC trained Mobility Counsellors in Wallonia and elsewhere in Belgium. More than 1 000 government employees attended the 16-day course.

In a further example, in response to needs observed in emerging and developing countries, TRANSITEC has organised annual two-week seminars for managers within various spheres of government and international agencies, in collaboration with the URBAPLAN engineering design office in Marseille and Lausanne. This initiative continues under the auspices of AFD and SECO (See website)
