PTV Academic Committee

PTV Group’s mission is to always keep abreast of technology and market needs. We are committed to readying our suite of mobility and transportation modeling software for the challenges of today and tomorrow.

In the PTV Academic Committee, we engage with researchers and professors from around the world to discuss the latest modeling trends, research results, and the potential for turning these into robust software tools for professionals. The Committee comprises several members, each a thought-leading expert in a topic area. To ensure that topics across all of PTV Group’s fields of activity are covered, new members are appointed each year. Fresh thinking is more important than long-time usage of our software: We intentionally cast our net farther than what our products currently cover, so we can identify opportunities for expansion into new application areas.
