We promote socio-technical change towards smart and low carbon transport systems by providing knowledge, methods and practical tools for strategic planning and decision making.
Transport system is changing towards a complex technological system, largely depending on IC technology and ICT applications. Population is concentrating in growth centres and ageing. Patterns of work travel and casual travelling are changing. In addition, prevention of the climate change sets requirements to transport system.
We have strong research knowledge and methods to raise to these challenges. For example, emission calculation database Lipasto helps us to find out emissions caused by traffic.
Intelligent solutions for cleaner environment and better traffic flow
The research of transport systems serves regional, national and EU-level public administration and companies. We produce information and knowledge for policy support and related tools and methods in the areas of foresight, policy instruments and impact assessments.
Our research perspective can be, for example, transport as a part of energy and climate strategies, service levels, development of technologies and service innovation processes and renewal, smart mobility or energy consumption and emissions.
Climate change, mobility and stakeholder networks
We contribute to strategies and impact assessments of public administration and private companies. A good example is ILARI-project (Transport sector policy packages for climate change mitigation in Finland up to the year 2050).
We are familiar with stakeholder networks of the transport system technologies and services, for example we’ve made project called eMAP (electromobility – scenario based Market potential, Assessment and Policy options). Movement analyses are also a part of our competence.
