Distinguished Transport Lecture Series


The Distinguished Transport Lecture Series was launched in 2009. Each year, we invite internationally renowned and distinguished experts and scholars to visit Hong Kong to deliver public lectures in the transport field, with the aims of promoting excellence in transport research and development in Hong Kong and stimulating discussion and the exchange of views between international experts and scholars and local researchers and professionals.

The speakers are all full professors who hail from a variety of disciplines, including civil engineering, economics, geography, law, logistics, public policy and urban planning, at top universities and institutions around the world.
