Transatlantic Transport Research
Strategy and Scope
The field of transportation research is in full motion. The need to address sustainability aspects of transportation prompts both intriguing policy questions and fascinating research challenges. On both sides of the Atlantic a great variety of research strategies and projects have been developed to cope with relevant research questions. The STELLA Transatlantic network aims to focus the attention on these issues with a view to the exchange of information, the execution of comparative research and the establishment of relevant network activities in order to design a future research agenda. The paper introduces the nature of these research questions from a transatlantic perspective and presents the contours of a realistic policy research agenda for transportation in a sustainability context.
