SCRIPTS is a SURF (Smart Urban Regions of the Future) project, which is part of VerDuS (Verbinden van Duurzame Steden - Connecting Sustainable Cities). Within this knowledge initiative, scientific researchers work together with professionals to develop knowledge that helps address issues relating, for example, to urbanisation, the environment, mobility and transport.
VerDuS is an initiative of NWO (the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research), Nicis Institute (now Platform 31 – a fusion of KEI, Nicis Institute, Nirov and SEV) and various Dutch ministries.
In contributing to the development of smart cities, this research program will execute a series of integrated PhD and postdoc projects that will deliver (I) a new model system to predict the demand for hybrid public transport systems involving new demand responsive transport services that are flexible in route and schedule and organised through smart city mobile ICT platforms, (II) a set of models for the optimal design of such hybrid systems and the simulation of their performance, (III) an evaluation framework addressing institutional aspects of such innovations.
