Transport Infrastructures: Investments, Evaluation and Regional Economic Growth

Transport infrastructures, territories and firms can contribute significantly to our economic development. However, the link between infrastructure and economic growth is characterized by feedback channels, network effects, externalities and spillovers of various kinds, making the analysis at once multifaceted and challenging. These considerations clarify the complexity of the theme and the need to investigate various aspects both theoretically and empirically.
Papers on any topic relevant to transport infrastructure and regional economic growth are particularly welcome. Topics of special interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Impacts and evaluation
  • Policy and environment
  • Local public transport
  • Planning mobility and geography
