FSR Transport Forums

POLICY EVENTS

FSR Transport works with a global network of academics covering all topics in the context of transport and mobility. The ‘Annual Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures’, brings together all research areas of the Florence School of Regulation to discuss current challenges in the regulation of the infrastructure industries. This event offers an annual opportunity to contribute to regulatory policies in the European network industries to young researchers – advanced PhD students, PostDocs and Assistant Professors – along with practitioners. The core activity of FSR Transport is the organisation of policy events, where representatives of the European Commission, regulatory authorities, transport operators, other stakeholders, as well as academics in the field, meet to discuss and shape regulatory policy in the European transport sector. Since 2010 more than 35 events have taken place. Most recently the following topics were discussed:

• Aviation: EU regulation of airport charges

• Railways: The Role for Railway Undertakings in the Mobility of the Future

• Road Transport & Mobility: Electric Vehicle Charging

• Road Transport - Road Safety

POLICY BRIEFS

The European Transport Regulation Observer is published after each workshop and is part of the Robert Schuman Center Policy Brief Series. It is an open source publication highlighting the main outcomes of the discussions and featuring several comments by academics as well as a suggested reading section.

RESEARCH PROJECTS AND PUBLICATIONS

In cooperation with the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) FSR Transport publishes the ‘Network Industries Quarterly’ (NIQ). The NIQ aims to cover research findings regarding the most compelling challenges deriving from liberalisation that affected network industries in the recent past, to monitor emerging trends, and to analyse the strategic implications of these changes in terms of regulation, risk management, governance and innovation in all, but also across, the different regulated sectors. FSR Transport also collaborates with the Innovative Governance of Large Urban Systems (IGLUS) Program to publish the IGLUS Quarterly. This publication aims to facilitate knowledge and experience sharing among scholars and practitioners who are interested in the improvement of urban systems performance in terms of service efficiency, sustainability and resilience
