WP 5 Strategic focus and results Focus: Develop advanced simulation tools and visualization of results to support the decision process Planned results: - description of best practice; - improvement of understanding how multimodal transport system works; - understanding how the performance of corridor transport system responds to system changes (e.g. improvements in infrastructure information exchanges, synchronized planning).
WP 5 shall improve academic cooperation and the business development with high quality recommendations for improvement of intermodal transport concepts in the corridor in line with the overall objective of East-West project
