Research topic/area: The Regional Impacts of High-Speed Rail
Research Summary: It focuses on exploring the impacts induced by high-speed rail (HSR) quantitatively and analyses the relationship between HSR and regional development holistically. It then proposes a simulation model, which is able to combine the different aspects of regional development, such as production, employment, private investment, population and land-use etc., and jointly evaluate the overall impacts of HSR at regional level. The model will be calibrated and validated using the data from Portugal.
