Main objectives to take up and update the results of existing studies on accessibility at the European scale using most recent available network and socio-economic data, to extend the range of accessibility indicators by further indicators responding to new policy questions and further developing the quality and validity of the existing indicators, to extend the spatial resolution of accessibility indicators by calculating, besides European accessibility, also global and regional accessibility, to explore the likely impacts of available policies at the European and national scale to improve global, European and regional accessibility in the light of new challenges, such as globalisation, energy scarcity and climate change.
TRACC and CSF Objective 7 key actions Core TEN-T infrastructure covering road, rail and sea transport, as well as multimodal and interoperable modes Core TEN-T railway infrastructure, secondary connectivity, upgrading of dense railway networks, improve interoperability Innovative road pricing Integrated, sustainable and accessible urban mobility concepts TRACC Accessibility indicators TRACC Regional case studies TRACC impacts of policy scenarios

Jobs available within 60 minutes public transport travel time (Czech case study) DRAFT
Accessibility potential to medical doctors (Finland case study) DRAFT
Car travel time to nearest hospital (EURAM case study)
Accessibility scenarios What are the effects of the new proposal of the European Commission for Trans-European Transport Networks on accessibility? Effects on Europe- wide accessibility pattern Effects on regional accessibility pattern Proposed core network
Impact analysis and scenarios Analysis of the relationship between accessibility and economic development and environmental indicators over time. Consistent set of long-term scenarios of European transport. Likely spatial impacts of European transport scenarios up to the year 2030 (regional accessibility, regional economic development, territorial cohesion, polycentricity, environmental impacts).
