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.

Research topic/area: Improving Cost-Benefit Analysis through New Methodologies for Residual Value and Lifecycle Environmental Impacts

Research Summary: Megaprojects often have cost and schedule overruns. Their analyses are criticized so the costs and benefits should be carefully assessed. The objective is to make improvements to CBA by exploring how to represent the true value an investment generates over time. A review of the major critical factor weaknesses is performed. These include traffic forecasts, cost estimates, discount rate, value of non-market goods, regional, local and environmental impacts and residual value. Improvements for the factors can be made with a highlight on two factors (residual value and lifecycle environmental impacts) that can bring innovative , robust improvements to the process.
