Last week, Markus Hesse and Tom Becker presented at the biannual Transport Research Days held at Department of Geography at Ghent University and organised by the Benelux Interuniversity Association of Transport Researchers (BIVEC-GIBET).
The BIVEC-GIBET aims to generate discussion on various angles of transport infrastructure, such as transport economics and governance. The Transport Research Days, presents an opportunity for both "young and established scholars from the three Benelux-Countries ... to present their research findings to an informed audience of transport researchers."
In a session entitled, "Accessibility" chaired by Thomas Vanoutrive (University of Antwerp) Becker presented, "Best practice without evidence? Policy-based evidence-making in European sustainable urban mobility transfers".
In a session entitled, "Pricing" and chaired by Bert van Wee (Delft University), Hesse presented a paper that he co-wrotei with Carr, entitled "Free Transit in Luxembourg: A case of post-political urban governance through policy mobility," and focussing on the issue of governance, policy mobility and transport pricing. It generated lively discussion and we look forward to telling you more about it when it is formally published.
