Strategic Transport Management in the Øresund region, STMØ, is a project conducted in co-operation between Malmö Högskola, Danmarks Tekniske Universitet, Københavns Handelshøjskole, Sjöfartsverket in Sweden, Yrkeshögskolan in Helsingborg, Øresund Logistics, Landskrona kommun, Øresundsuniversitetet, Malmö Stad, Københavns Kommune and Region Skåne.
One aim of the project is to develop a new scientific field, rooted in the Øresund region, which will be able to deal with questions associated to the interaction between traffic related consequences and development of society. At the same time the project seeks to develop an interregional master education, located at Øresundsuniversitetet, which will provide students, business, organisations and authorities competences to make optimised and valid solutions for Transport Management.
A reason for creating a new education is the business desire to save costs and increase competition on production, trade, logistic and transport and thereby optimise the production- and transport chains. Another main focus is to try to define the increasing need for transportation, due to global, regional and local development and describe how this can be combined with a fair development of society. Several areas of importance has been identified and grouped as economic-, legal-, structural-, functional-, environmental- and technical matters. These matters need to be discussed and integrated in order to define and overcome possible barriers for an optimised and valid transport development.
Thus STMØ aims at analysing the specific education needs related to the above mentioned matters, and based on the analysis creating the master education of Strategic Transport Management in such a way that it will be compatible with other educations already located in the Øresund region.
