We would like to inform all COST Action Grant Holders that the 'Participate' section of the COST website will be reorganised as of Tuesday 14 May at 12:00. These changes will also have an impact on the former 'Guidelines' page and the documents available herewith.
Transport and Urban Development (TUD)
TUD fosters research coordination in the fields of transport and the built environment, which play a strategic role in the modern society and economy.
The Domain is by definition cross-sectoral and multidisciplinary, encompassing a wide range of scientific expertises within the transport and land use planning, design, and management activities with a special emphasis on the strong interrelationships among the relevant policy fields as well on all aspects related to sustainable development.
The domain activities should be innovative and complementary to other European programmes in the relevant fields. The aim is to cover both basic and applied research activities including technical and technological developments and their changeovers that are relevant to policy and decision making processes.
A significant concern is devoted to activities exploring new research needs and developments.
