AbstractBasics and concepts of logistics and freight transport; offers, infrastructure and production processes of different transport systems; regulatory framework
ObjectiveIdentification and understanding the interconnections between logistic requirements, market, transport offers, operational processes, transport means and regulation in freight transport of all transport systems (road, rail, intermodal, waterborne and air).
ContentBasics and concepts of logistics, actors in logistics and freight transport, transport demand (1) inventory-management, in-house logistics, storage, transport safety, dangerous goods (2), basics to transport offers, production processes and infrastructure for road, rail, intermodal, waterborne (sea and inland waterways) and air transport, urban logistics (3), transport policy, regulation, spatial planning, location issues and network design with optimization methods (4)
Lecture notesThe course is in english. Lecture slides in English will be provided. Books and reference material will be provided.

AbstractThe goal is to integrate the contents of the lectures of the block “Transportation” through a joint set of exercises which will allow the students to understand how the parts come together in the design of transport systems. The exercise will be based on a Swiss city. The exercises will involve onsite work.
Objective- Diese gemeinsame Übung an Hand einer Schweizer Ortschaft dient der Vertiefung des Verständnisses der Wechselwirkungen zwischen allen Teilen des Verkehrssystems
- Die Studenten haben Gelegenheit durch die Gruppenarbeit ihre Fähigkeiten in der Zusammenarbeit zu üben
- Den entwerferischen Aufgaben wird in allen Teilen besondere Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt (Netzentwurf, Liniennetzentwurf, Knoten und Strassenentwurf, Massnahmen des Nachfragemanagements)
ContentDrei verknüpfte Übungen aus der Verkehrsplanung, Verkehrstechnik, und
dem Öffentlichen Verkehr
- Verkehrserhebungen
- Strassenraumentwurf
- Netzentwurf
- Nachfrageberechnung
- Fahrplanentwurf
- Leistungsfähigkeitsberechnungen für die Strecken und Knoten
- Bewertung

AbstractIn this series of seminars, invited speakers discuss various topics in the area of risk modelling, governance of complex socio-economic systems, managing risks and crises, and building resilience. Students, PhD students, post-docs, faculty and individuals outside ETH are welcome.
ObjectiveParticipants gain insights in a broad range of risk- and resilience-related topics. They expand their knowledge of the field and deepen their understanding of the complexity of our social, economic and engineered systems. For young researchers in particular, the seminars offer an opportunity to learn academic presentation skills and to network with an interdisciplinary scientific audience.
ContentAcademic presentations from ETH faculty as well as external researchers.
Each seminar is followed by a Q&A session and (when permitted) a networking Apéro.
Lecture notesThe sessions are recorded whenever possible and posted on the ETH Risk Center webpage. If available, presentation slides are shared as well.
LiteratureEach speaker will provide a literature review.
Prerequisites / NoticeIn most cases, a quantitative background is required. Depending on the topic, field-specific knowledge may be required.
