Theme 1 - Mobility and Multi- Modality Management 2001-2005 follows on from Theme 2 - Mobility and Multi- Modality Management 2000-2001.
The first programme was focused on 3 main themes - the environmental management of airports, the regional express network (RER) and the optimisation of the SNCB (Belgian Railways) network.
The next and current theme focuses on spatial/territorial development and infrastructure needs in Wallonia, to plan multimodal transport between Walloon cities and propose a methodology to prioritise infrastructure.
The 2001-2002 programme's 3 main research themes are:
- The relative need for greater infrastructure (macro-economic approach)
- Multi-modality and Intermodality (micro-economic approach)
- The link between the mobility of business and zones of economic activities (ZAEs)
All three topics will have been studied individually, but were possible common elements were sought.
For the current programme research projects have been commissioned to 3 main universities.
