Optimal Transport Networks in Spatial Equilibrium

Project description

Placing social welfare at the heart of transport infrastructure

Transport is an important part of society, the economy and social well-being. Countries around the world invest significantly in the upkeep and improvement of their transport infrastructure and development. These investments impact society, from pollution levels to access to essential goods and services. This brings up the question of how infrastructure investments should be allocated across space to maximise social welfare. This is one of the key questions the EU-funded OPTNETSPACE project aims to answer. To do this, it will develop innovative theoretical and quantitative models to analyse the economic impact of infrastructure projects and will develop tools that researchers and policymakers in the field can use.
