One of the founding goals of CENIT was to provide scientific support to the public sector on topics related to transport and mobility. For this reason, our center has created the Public Research Partnership, which aims to develop joint doctorates on strategic themes between CENIT and public entities. To facilitate an effective transfer of knowledge between the two entities, PhD students spend some days working together with the staff of the public entity and other days in the offices of CENIT.
