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.
SCIENCE FOR TRANSPORT
We focus our activity on creating and promoting knowledge, supporting institutions and companies, conducting both national and international research projects or writing articles with the highest scientific strictness. Nevertheless, as domain experts, we want to step beyond and offer transverse solutions to boost corporate, institutional and professional development by means of technology transfer.
