Our researchers that specialise in Port Economics focus on the translation of academic knowledge into policy advice and business solutions in the field of port economics and management and port related logistics. Through our involvement in PhD projects and academic programmes and by our embeddedness in both national and international academic research networks we are very well equipped to make this translation into highly valuable contract research.
Our internal Erasmus University Rotterdam network increases our potential research capacity and gives us access to high level academic knowledge in the relevant economic and management based disciplines, like contracting, entrepreneurship, strategy making, business economics, micro-economics, institutional economics, quantitative optimization and simulation. Staff at RHV participate in Erasmus Smart Port Rotterdam, an interfaculty centre of excellence on maritime and port-related research and education.
Together with our own in-depth knowledge of ports and logistics and our vast experience in doing contract research and projects this results in research outcomes with sound quality and high level policy advice and innovative business solutions.
The staff of Port Economics is often asked for advice by businesses and policy makers. The expertise of the staff in the fields of port management, -policy, competition and cost benefit analysis make them a valuable partner to anyone involved in port management.
