Overview

Background & Policy context

Transport is an essential element for the modern society. It has proven to be very difficult to reduce the environmental impacts of transport, such as CO2-emissions.
Therefore it is necessary to gain more knowledge about the role of transport in the modern society, and the interactions between individual transport patterns, the transport systems and the environmental impacts.

Strategic Objectives

The overall objective of TRIP is to increase the knowledge and understanding of the functioning and impacts of transportation. The projects of TRIP will improve the foundation for all aspects of transportation analysis and analyse the effects of different regulatory instruments to facilitate decision-making in transport and the environment.

Programme organisation

The Centre for Transport Research on environmental and health Impacts and Policy, TRIP, is an open research centre linking researchers from different universities and other research institutions.

Collaboration in TRIP is partly based in existing research networks dealing with environment, health, and transport. The institutions within the network are:
