ASSIST

ASsessing the Social and economic Impacts of past and future Sustainable Transport policy in Europe

Overview on the project

Dr. Wolfgang Schade / Dr. Michael Krail


Assist objectives of the project

Main objective:

Provide the EU with sound policy advice on possible social and economic impacts of future sustainable transport policies that could potentially contribute to the strategic objectives of the EU

5 goals to be achieved by ASSIST:

Providing policy advice in terms of socioeconomic impact assessment of Transport Policy Measures (TPM) applied in the EU

Considering future challenges for the transport system and assessing the impacts with respect to social and economic impacts of traditional TPMs

Developing and handing over ASTRA-EC: a powerful tool for assessing social and economic impacts of transport policy

Communicating with stakeholders about project findings on TPM and the use of ASTRA-EC

Disseminating results on impact of TPMs via the Handbook of Social and Economic Impacts of Sustainable Transport Policy to policy-makers and experts

Transport policy measures tpm in assist
Transport PolicyMeasures (TPM) in ASSIST

  • Broad definition of the meaning of transport policy in ASSIST

  • Covers three topics:

    • traditional transport policies:

      e.g. pricing instruments, fuel taxation, regulation/liberalisation of markets

    • transport infrastructure implementation:

      e.g. length of networks, connection between modes

    • transport-technology related measures:

      e.g. setting standards, R&D support, incentives for consumers

      TPM in ASSIST


Assist research concept
ASSIST: researchconcept

  • Two connected lines of work:

    • Desk research on social and economic impacts of TPMs and

    • Developing the Integrated Assessment Model ASTRA-EC (based on System Dynamics ) and making it accessible to EC

  • Clustering of TPMs and attributing social, economic and environmental impacts of individual measures

  • Analysis (quantitative) of TPM under consideration of past impacts and empirical findings in context of future challenges

  • Analysing single TPMs in context of other measures to point out complementaries/contradictions

  • Adopting common consensus of the definition of sustainable transport

  • Continuous internal (via partners and quality board) and external (via stakeholder and experts) quality control

  • Policy Radar: screening of ongoing policy development (e.g. White Paper)

Expected results of assist
Expectedresultsof ASSIST

  • Provide a better understanding of medium- to long-term development of transport in EU

    • in the context of implications of future challenges on TPM impacts

    • and by developing and delivering a powerful integrated assessment model ASTRA-EC

  • Develop a comprehensive and easily accessible analytical framework to assess/identify options for policy actions to make transport sustainable

    • Handbook of Social and Economic Impacts of STP

    • ASTRA-EC for individually designed policy measures
