Your duties will include guiding the project team and monitoring and reporting on progress. In addition, you will work closely with clients and the other project managers to ensure that our advisory reports and studies have maximum impact.

You will join the Sustainable Mobility team in the Sustainable Transport and Logistics department. There, you will work with a committed group of scientists, researchers, and project leaders with a passion for learning. We share one mission: to make tomorrow's mobility cleaner and more sustainable. To this end, we conduct both fundamental and applied research, often in collaboration with international partners and public-sector clients such as the European Commission. Our team is diverse, with a mix of young talent and experienced staff working together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and enthusiasm for sustainability.
