AbstractParticipants are getting acquainted with methods for the development and assessment of transport scenarios. They may choose appropriate methods for a specific problem. They discuss critically examples of application and existing studies. It shall be conveyed how to establish regional-economic scenarios and assess scenarios based on ecologic, economic and social criteria.
-have an overview of appropriate methods to establish, analyse and evaluate transport systems
- and are be able to select the right method in case of a specific problem.
Content- Methodological fundamentals and application examples for the ecological (e.g. LCA), economic and social valuation of transport / mobility scenarios
- Establish and assess regional and economic transport scenarios with MATSim
- Handling of specific case studies from practice
- Assess existing studies critically
-Methods: e.g. Life cycle assessment, cost-benefit-analysis, agent based modelling
