    VREF Research Briefs


    2014-09-17 | VREF will start in October/November 2014 to produce VREF Research Briefs as short-form summaries of research findings in topics of relevance to the VREF Future Urban Transport Program.
    The form for VREF Research Briefs is a 2-pager text with some illustrations, representing and summarizing state-of-the-art and/or latest new research findings. VREF Research Briefs will be written in a “popular science” style, with well-informed policy makers, practitioners and researchers as the target audience. We intend to publish 5-10 VREF Research Briefs per year here at www.vref.se, and some of them will also be printed and disseminated at events. Feel free to suggest topics for VREF Research Briefs , by contacting the VREF Director Henrik Nolmark, henrik.nolmark@vref.se
