BENEFIT – Business models for enhancing funding and enabling financing for infrastructure in transport
BENEFIT takes an innovative approach by analysing funding schemes within an inter-related system and depending on their Business Model (described by a governance model).
These are key elements in Transport Infrastructure Provision, Operation and Maintenance and funding and financing schemes are analysed in this respect. This allows for the transferability of findings with respect to “lessons learned”, “limitations” and “the impact of the financial and economic crisis”.
The BENEFIT project takes stock of over twenty years of EC funded national and international research and receives direct input from the OMEGA Centre and COST Action TU1001.
BENEFIT undertakes an ex-ante (forward) analysis and assessment of transport investments and related funding schemes, including innovative procurement still in a pilot phase.
