STREAMS: Strategic Transport Research (1996- 1998)

The project 'Strategic Transport Research for European Member States' (STREAMS) aims at developing a method for the analysis and forecasting of pan-European transport flows. In particular it is to be investigated to what degree external factors such as demographic or economic developments influence long-distance mobility freight movements and in how far the trans-European transport networks (TETN) developed by the European Union will be able to cope with them. For this purpose a 'strategic' transport model for Europe that will generate forecasts of passenger and freight flows in the European Union and its regions. IRPUD contributes to the project by developing present and future pan-European transport networks using a geographic information system, by cooperating in the definition of transport network scenarios and by providing modules for the visualisation of the model results. The study is part of the transport part of the Fourth Framework for Research and Technology Development of the European Commission, DG VII (Transport). The international project consortium is coordinated by Marcial Echenique & Partners of Cambridge, UK, with other partners from Finland, Italy and Spain.
