ITRACT: Improving Transport and Accessibility through new Communication Technologies

Project: Research

Description

The accessibility of regions is a clear advantage in terms of their social-economic development. With new technologies, such as satellite and integrated sensor networks, transport and accessibility of remote areas can be improved in innovative ways. We intend to develop and test innovative tools for efficient, user- and environment-friendly transport networks across the NSR. Our aim is to create sustainable and inclusive regional economies and communities throughout the North Sea Region by improving the virtual and physical modes of transport on a large scale.
