TRANSPORT & MOBILITY LEUVEN (TML)
TML conducts applied research to support policy decisions, relying on quantitative research by means of modelling, statistical analyses, simulations, and prognoses. Our research fields are traffic, passenger and freight transport and the related economic impact and environmental problems. Our clients are the European Commission, national governments and administrations, local and regional authorities, as well as sector associations and non-profit organisations. We conduct our projects with great concern for independence and openness. We clearly communicate not only our end results, but also our intermediate results and methods. Our research results thus instil insight and trust and can thus be defended.
