Trainee - Graduation research at SmartPort

To write my master thesis, I started as an intern at SmartPort in March. It is a very nice team in which I will be working on my research with great enthusiasm. I completed my bachelor’s degree in Social Geography and Planning at Utrecht University and then started the master’s in Spatial Planning at Radboud University.

In my graduation research, I will look at the potential of the modal shift from road to water for freight transport between the port of Rotterdam and the strategic junction Moerdijk and how policy can guide this. I am looking forward to the coming months and therefore have a good motivation to achieve a good result!
