ITRACT: Improving Transport and Accessibility through new Communication Technologies

Interreg IVB North Sea Region Programme

Lead-researcher in Work Package 6 'Evaluation and Strategy Development', together with prof. dr. Strijker. Several publications related to this project can be found in the list of publications on this website. 

Project summary:

"A number of areas within the North Sea Region are located at a distance from the main economic agglomerations of their countries and lag behind in terms of socio-economic development. Key elements in development are connectivity and accessibility. In line with the European Commission strategy document “A sustainable Future for Transport – towards an integrated technology-led and user-friendly system”, the ITRACT project aims to improve those capacities through innovative transport and communication concepts. Thereby it is also contributing to the Digital Agenda of Europe 2020. Physical transport and good virtual communications are both regarded as important to reduce the social and economic exclusion of remote areas.

Within the triple helix of business, governmental, and knowledge institutions the project will develop an information architecture and run pilot actions in order to create standardized technical procedures for efficient and user-friendly transport services."
