Extension of Chair Funding of Professor De Langen
January 9, 2013
The Province of Noord-Brabant has decided to extend the funding for the chair of Professor de Langen (part-time full professor in the OPAC group) by four years. The funding is sufficient to fund the professor, a full time PhD student, and a part-time postdoc. The research of professor De Langen concerns the policy impacts and the impact of policies on cargo transport. In the past years, he has worked with PhD student Frank van den Heuvel and Asst Professor Karel van Donselaar on the positive effects of clustering logistics operations into logistics parks. Especially the positive effects of colocation on the efficiency of goods transportation have been used as a basis for various policy analyses of the Province.
