Technology is not what is missing when it comes to introducing ecologically-sustainable transportation systems. It is old ways of thinking and outdated structures that get in the way. That´s why researchers at VREF´s CoE in Melbourne are actively participating in a debate aimed to bring about change.
Nicholas Low

In January 2011, Dr. Leigh Glover succeeded Prof. Nicholas Low as Director of GAMUT. Low will continue as part time Associate Director for the next three years, assisting Glover in his new role. 

Activities under the auspices of the Australasian Centre for Governance and Management of Urban Transport (GAMUT) were launched in 2006.

The Centre is initially financed by VREF (SEK 25 million), the VREF OMEGA Centre (SEK 1.37 million), Melbourne University (SEK 2.5 million), and through a range of contract research projects (approx. SEK 250 thousand).

After the end of the first five-year-period, in Dec. 2010, the Centre obtained a three-year-project extension. The Centre employs 14 researchers, of which five are doctoral students.
