Selected publications

 

 

Mass-media experience and spreading of research information on news papers

Besides the national and international scientific publication, interviews were made on mass media to spread the research results. The effect of handling and transport on animal welfare and environment was commented in the local news paper of Uppsala. The effect of route planing and co-ordination of goods transport distribution was also commented on Uppsala Nya. Detailed comments on the effective logistics system to promote a sustainable transport system were also given in the transport news paper, Transport Idag Tidning. Radio interviews were made four times by Upplands radio regarding goods transport and animal transport. The national radio made long interview on researcher with foreign background. The Swedish National TV programme made interviews twice about animal transport as a whole and particularly on CATRA, the EU-funded project. One of the Swedish largest news papers, Dagens Nyhet, published article about research activities of Gebresenbet and comprehensive interview under the title of ―Professor that loves cowsǁ. Main emphasis was on animal welfare, meat quality and environment.
