Urban Planning and Transportation

Urban Planning and Transportation concerns decision about the best location and distribution of urban land use, which is strongly connected to the transportation systems. The quality of plans and policies depends on the impact it has on economic, social, environmental, psychological and societal aspects. The focus of the research of the group is on developing models and integrating these into decision support systems for urban planning design and policy decisions.

Research project: TERTS

TERTS stimuleert duurzaam energiegebruik in de tertiaire sector door innovatieve energietechnieken te demonstreren en door KMO/MKB’s te begeleiden. Lokale besturen krijgen een centrale rol in de energietransitie van hun horeca, detailhandelaars en kleine zelfstandigen.



Predicting travel demand is a core activity of transportation planning. The current models are becoming increasingly less relevant due to developments such as shared cars and mobility-as-a-service, enabled by ICT. This project aims at developing a prototype of the next generation of travel demand models that incorporates these new developments.
