Organisation:

TRT Trasporti e Territorio is an independent consultancy specialized in transport economics, planning and modelling. Established in 1992, the Company has earned a solid international reputation in supporting public and private actors thanks to its professional and R&D activities in the fields of transport projects appraisal and policy assessment.

Description of work:

We look for a junior/intermediate Transport Modeller to join our team in the Milan office. The position will involve working as part of a multidisciplinary team in transport modelling projects, including urban studies and the TRIMODE transport model of the EU (http://www.trt.it/en/PROGETTI/trimode_project/).

The candidate Transport Modeller will work in research projects and consultancy services and will operate in an international environment also in partnership with companies and universities of different EU countries. He or she will develop quantitative analysis, support the drafting and publication of reports, prepare and present scientific articles and contribute to communication and dissemination tasks within the projects.

The impact of TEN-T completion on growth, jobs and the environment

RAPPORTO_completoThe European Commission has now published the study on “The impact of TEN-T completion on growth, jobs and the environment” performed by TRT in partnership with M-Five (DE) and Ricardo E&E (UK). The objective of the study is to quantify the impact of the TEN-T core network implementation until 2030, as well as the impact of each of the nine core network corridors separately, on European Union growth, jobs and the environment.

Transport Market Study:“Quantification of modal shift potential on the Rail Freight Corridor Rhine-Alpine”

  • 12 March 2019
  • News

RFC RALPTRT led an international consortium conducting a study on behalf of the EEIG Rhine-Alpine EWIG to asses the impacts that specific improvements on the infrastructure and service on the Rail Freight Corridor Rhine-Alpine may have in terms of modal shift from road to rail. The study focused on three topics selected together with the Railway Undertakings: 1) heavier trains (with 740m trains), 2) faster trains (with a reduction of stops) and 3) more reliable trains (including the role of ETA).

Sustainable Transport Infrastructure Charging and Internalisation of Transport Externalities

2018-year-multimodality-external-costs-noteTRT is partner of the international consortium appointed by the European Commission DG MOVE to carry out the study “Sustainable Transport Infrastructure Charging and Internalisation of Transport Externalities”. Currently, the study is ongoing and approaching its final phase. The final report will be delivered early next summer with main conclusions and transport policy applications. Preliminary results are available on the webpage and show the overall size of transport external costs, the external costs by cost category and by transport mode for EU28 countries and the extent to which users and polluters pay the total costs (external and infrastructure) that they are responsible for.

Modal shift in European transport: a way forward

On the occasion of the Year of Multimodality, 2018, the study aimed to take stock of progress made towards the objectives set by the 2011 Transport White Paper and of the actions taken at European level to make the modal shift more successful.

The study provides a comprehensive analysis of the progress and potential for modal shift from road to more sustainable modes of transport, both on passenger and freight transport. It highlights the main barriers and factors hindering a more effective modal shift at European level and gives recommendations on measures to be potentially incorporated to achieve more effective policies.

Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators (SUMI) Project for the European Commission, DG MOVE

  • 15 March 2018
  • News

SUMI

The SUMI project, lasting 24 months, provides technical support for the identification and the collection of a set of sustainable urban mobility indicators in 50 European large and small urban areas.

Main project activities are related to:

·      providing rigorous and consistent methodologies for acquisition, harmonisation and analysis of data; this includes the definition of a “mentor” for each indicator, i.e. a reference expert capable to sort out all related technical issues;

·      giving technical support to the urban areas and systematically collect their hands-on experiences; appointed “urban area coaches” have the responsibility to establish direct links between the project consortium and the urban areas and help city administrations to gather the needed data;

·      carrying on consultation, capacity building and dissemination actions addressed to subjects both inside and outside of the project;

·      preparing realistic, harmonised and sound recommendations for further improvement and extension of the indicator system.

TRIP Research Theme Analysis Report – Transport safety

TRIP_report_transport_safety-TRT

The new report from the European Commission funded Transport Research Innovation Portal (TRIP) – a free to access, European Commission funded portal for EU professionals to share and discuss innovations in transport mobility – provides a comprehensive review on Transport Safety. TRT is among the partners of the consortium.  From September 2007, the online platform TRIMIS – European Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring System – incorporates TRIP’s database of over 10,000 EU and national transport research projects.

The report offers a rare snapshot to provide transport professionals with valuable insight into the emerging tools and techniques that are being used to enhance the safety of EU transport systems.

The report covers four interlinked sub themes of transport safety: road transport safety, railway transport safety, air transport safety, maritime transport safety.

TRIP Research Theme Analysis Report – Transport security

TRIP_Report_Transport_Security-TRT

The new report from the European Commission funded Transport Research Innovation Portal (TRIP) provides a comprehensive review on Transport Security. TRT is among the partners of the consortium.

The report offers a rare snapshot to help policy makers and researchers with examples of where research in Europe is helping to improve security and the resilience of passenger and freight transport. It also identifies important areas and research gaps to focus future efforts.

The report covers six interlinked sub themes of transport security: threat detection and prevention, crisis management, cyber security, privacy and ICT issues, staff security training, cargo security, passenger security.

TRIP Research Theme Analysis Report – Urban Mobility

160_TRIP-Report_03

This is the first in the new series of Research Theme Analysis Reports produced under the new Transport Research & Innovation Portal (TRIP)  – a free to access, European Commission funded portal for EU professionals to share and discuss innovations in transport mobility

It covers the research theme Urban Mobility. The purpose of this Research Theme Analysis Report is to provide an overview of research performed (mostly) in the EU collated by TRIP, providing a view across many projects that fall under the theme. It provides an assessment of the reported results from the research projects, giving scientific and policy perspectives.

The theme of Urban Mobility has been divided into seven sub-themes, as follows: accessibility, freight transport, intelligent transport systems (ITS) low carbon transport technologies, sustainable public transport, Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), urban land use.

TRIP Research Theme Analysis Report – Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS)

160_TRIP-Report_02

This Research Theme Analysis Report provides a review of research projects under the new Transport Research & Innovation Portal (TRIP) – continuation project for the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG-MOVE). It covers the Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) research theme.

Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) is a subset of ITS that has been as “‘A subset of the overall ITS that communicates and shares information between ITS stations to give advice or facilitate actions with the objective of improving safety, sustainability, efficiency and comfort beyond the scope of stand-alone systems.’

For the purpose of this review, the theme of C-ITS has been divided into 10 sub-themes and the assessments performed within each sub-theme as well as across the complete C-ITS theme. The 10 sub-themes considered are: communication technologies; data protection and security; freight transport and logistics; human-machine interaction; information systems/platform; motorway applications; public transport; safety, efficiency and emissions; sensors; urban applications.
