Behaviour and mobility

The accessibility of cities, regions and specific business locations is an essential driver of economic development. But cities also compete for quality of life and attractiveness, and companies want to take responsibility for sustainable business operations.

Controlling mobility with policy

Price instruments have a lot of potential to control mobility demand and to stimulate a conscious choice between means of transport. But to use them optimally, a great deal of knowledge is required about mobility behavior. This requires insight into complexity and policy.

Multidisciplinairy and evidence -based solutions

The experts from Erasmus UPT help you to understand these complex mobility issues through scientific research and to find evidence-based solutions and opportunities. They do this through a deep understanding of mobility and behavior from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Relevant projects

  • Payamos: (Promotion of Physical Activity of the Youth through Active Mobility to School) Erasmus+ project led by Technische Universität Berlin, Germany: promoting the physical activity of children of 9-12 years and adolescents of 14-18 years in seven European countries. The main objectives are (1) providing state-of-the-art of the topic of the relationships between the mobility of children/adolescents/parents, their perceptions, Active Mobility to School (ATS), the built environment, the physical activity of the youth, as well as their body weight, fitness, and oxygen uptake; (2) production of uniform and reliable data generated uniformly in the partner countries; (3) to shorten the time that the results of such academic studies reach the hand of policymakers, school authorities, who are supposed to intervene in the way students transport to their schools; and (4) to fill the gap between the empirical academic studies on the above subjects with the end-users.
