Network Industries Quarterly is our main tool for communicating worldwide.

6000 persons

We currently distribute to over 6000 persons, most of whom we have come to know personally at some point over the past years.

since 2008

Network Industries Quarterly has been published four times a year since 2008

in 1999

It has started as a paper version in 1999 in French and switched to an English online version as the audience had become increasingly more international. Over the years new partnerships with TU Delft and the Florence School of Regulation at the European University Institute were established.

since 2014

As of 2014, Network Industries Quarterly appears under a new layout, it is included in the EUI research repository Cadmus.

Regulation of the Railway Industry

Across the world, railways are poised to face new challenges, as all transport modes are transformed by technological innovations, liberalisation, competition with other modes of transport and most recently by digitalisation. Consequently, the railway industry is required to increase efficiency while ensuring security and safety, as it has to address multimodality, such as buses, as well as compete with new transport modes, such as car-sharing. Regulation of the railway industry and its various dimensions, not the least competition, is central factor in the process of its transformation and will ultimately decide whether railways will or will not increase their modal […]

The path towards digitalisation in road infrastructure

Editorial Introduction by the Guest Editor This special issue offers an overview on digitalisation in road infrastructure. Digitalisation has a vertical impact across the several layers of the road system. This will bring, in the medium to long term, profound challenges and disruptions to the existing status quo in terms of construction, management, and particularly, operation of road systems. From technical design standards up to Mobility as a Service and digital platforms that allow the appearance of new services and mobility solutions, a new paradigm is emerging, able to extract added value from road investments. The road infrastructure was traditionally […]

New network structures: decentralization, prosumers and the role of online platforms

New network structures: decentralization, prosumers and the role of online platforms This issue of the Network Industries Quarterly looks into the major challenges infrastructure regulation is currently facing as a result of technology, indirect network effects, newly emerging network structures, and new actors. The rapidly evolving Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have significantly challenged the traditionally stable landscape of infrastructure services provision. The new data layer over the traditional infrastructure and service layers is transforming network industries: online platforms create new indirect network effects, they allow new service providers to enter the market , and they challenge the central role […]

Regulation for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Transportation, Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Regulation for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Transportation, Logistics and Supply Chain Management Under the terms of Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and Physical Internet as well as several others, many automatization and digitalization trends are on the move for the transportation, logistics and supply chain sector. Many technology aspects are driving these developments, in line with economic aspects. But increasingly also questions of human perception, motivation and safety are entering the discussion, emerging as a crucial topical area for overall economic impact and success. Regulation for technology developments in artificial intelligence and robotics are commonly seen as one of […]
