Delhi has many urban challenges - one of them being transportation

From Delhi-Copenhagen Urban Challenge: A cross-disciplinary and comparative study on ‘Transportation,
Mobility, and Urban Space’ in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Delhi, India

This Summer, Copenhagen Business School will launch the Summer School ‘Delhi-Copenhagen Urban Challenge' (DCUC) in collaboration with The University of Copenhagen, Institute of Management Technology and IBM.

The aim of this Summer School course is to provide a qualitative addition to IBM’s quantitative Smarter Cities Challenge.

By applying ethnographic methods and theories about logistics and mobility to issues regarding forms of transportation and mobility in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Delhi, India, students will acquire hands-on experience with urban planning and policy making in two very different urban settings.

The course objective is to enable students to independently design and conduct a fieldwork driven project in a hands-on multi-sited case study.
