The Economic and Social Impacts of Planning and Transport Research


Theme of the conference


The ultimate goal of applied research is to promote economic development and social welfare. This means that its impact is to be felt in all kinds of organizations, from large and small companies to NGOs and to central and local administrations.

The theme of this year’s CITTA Conference is the economic and social impacts of the research conducted in Portugal and the European Union in centers focusing in Spatial Planning, Environment Policy and/or Transport Planning and Engineering. In line with this theme, the main objective of the conference is to analyze how research activity in these fields is responding to societal needs, as well as how it should be conducted to tackle current and future challenges. Despite the focus is naturally put on Portugal, it is also an objective of the conference to discuss the research problems posed by the Planning and Transport domains in other European Union countries.

Potential contributors to the CITTA Conference should submit an abstract of up to 300 words summarizing the work to present in the template available here. Contributions describing research carried out in the framework of doctoral or post-doctoral projects under contract or in collaboration with industrial organizations or administrative entities are especially welcomed.
