The daily traffic jams, the debate about air quality, the systematic discussions about environmental conflicts whenever a new infrastructure project is launched: all these symptoms point out that the remodelling of a transport network, together with the reorganisation of a sprawling territory, seems unavoidable and demands an integrated approach. Today, however, the disciplines of transport infrastructure design on the one hand and urbanism on the other hand do not cover much common ground. 

Our research group is the main expert in the relationship between space, mobility and infrastructure, both from a historical perspective as a contemporary perspective. Key research issues of this research group are integrated infrastructure design, accessibility and right to mobility, spatial impact of logistics and transport modes, train station area redevelopment, reintegration of ringroad infrastructure, bicycle oriented design and transit oriented development.
