EU 4th FP project, Strategic Transport: CODE-TEN

    Project Details


    The main objective of CODE-TEN is (1) to define a comprehensive strategic assessment methodology, (2) to describe major policy recommendations in transport corridor and TEN developments, including extensions to the CEEC/CIS in a long-term perspective through case studies, (3) to define and develop decision models (presented in a report and an interactive computer programme) which can be used in relation to assess interactions between policy instruments and corridor/network developments and (4) to prepare a short manual/guide for strategic policy assessment on TEN developments and its extensions to the CEEC/CIS, addressing the policy and decision-makers. The project focuses on the complexity of decision-making in transport policy at the European level. The current trends in the transport geography of Europe can be expressed by two words: integration and expansion of transport corridors. The extension not only includes current expansion of the EU but also possible future expansion and activated (transport) contacts with CEEC/CIS and the Mediterranean. The centrale purpose of CODE-TEN is to help with decision-making in the context of this complexity. It does so in two ways: by providing a comprehensive strategic assessment methodology (including user-friendly decision tools) and by presenting major policy-related issues and the associated scenarios and assumptions in a consistent way. Among other things, CODE-TEN is an integrative study making use of the results from a number of the other RTD projects in the Strategic Transport part of the 4th Framework Programme, for example EUNET (socio-economic evaluation methodology) and TEN-ASSESS (policy assessment). IFP is as work package leader responsible for the development of the baseline methodology. For further information:
