Dear Tom,

The Transport Studies Unit at the University of Oxford runs a series of short courses as part of the Global Challenges in Transport Programme that might be of interest. We do not specifically concentrate on rail transport, but perhaps our course on Infrastructures, Development and Finance might be relevant especially for what concerns the financing side of rail projects.
More information are available on our website<>, but please feel free to contact me with any question you or your colleague might have. [...]

G'day all

An ex-colleague has asked me if I know any institutions/organizations/universities which offer a short course (1 week duration max) on metro/tram/MRT system or other rail based urban transport systems, particularly on the planning, operation, and if possible, financing sides. It could be anywhere in the world, but preferably Europe/Australia. [...]

The Transportation Research Group at the University of Southampton ( and Siemens Mobility Limited (Poole, UK) are pleased to be able to offer a fully-funded PhD studentship focussing on using Artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches to improve real-time road traffic signal control systems.

As increased levels of real-time data become available within a road transport system (wirelessly connected cars, pedestrian monitoring systems, etc.), AI is increasingly being used to enable more rapid response to changing traffic patterns and road network conditions. In contrast however the use of countdown timers on pedestrian crossings and vehicle speed advisory systems such as GLOSA require [...]
