The institute has a broad competence profile and carries out applied research and development in relation to all modes of transportation. Knowledge that the institute develops provides a basis for decisions made by stakeholders in the transport sector. The administration of a national knowledge centre for research and education on cycling was commissioned to VTI by the Swedish government in 2018. In co-operation with other researchers, interest organisations and governmental bodies, VTI works on establishing long-term inter-disciplinary research to make cycling safer and more attractive.
