The VREF, after ten years of contribution to the development of sustainable transportation, summarize their activities and close collaboration with their initiated CoEs through a book.
The VREF is focusing on one coherent programme: Future Urban Transport - How to deal with complexity (FUT). The programme emerged in a context of increasingly-rapid urbanization and heavy motorization of cities, and the intention was to contribute to the development of sustainable transportation systems that also meet the needs of the entire population of a city - including those with the least resources. Solutions at the system level are needed, because a number of components - including land use, city planning, transport system choices and how decisions are made - need to be addressed simultaneously to develop sustainable transportation systems.
Thus far there are eight Centres of Excellence (CoE) established globally, representing a global infrastructure of more than 100 researchers. All CoEs work in close collaboration with traffic and city planners, transport operators, decision makers and interest groups.
This book is a progress report on that work, highlighting examples of findings from this research effort.

No ongoing call.

The earlier call dated 131221, Financing Urban Access, Research Director, is now closed for application and the review process is ongoing.
