The ASSIST project (Assessing the social and economic impacts of past and future sustainable transport policy in Europe) is funded by the European Commission as part of the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7). The European Union set up this framework programme to target its overall objectives in terms of increased growth and jobs. Under these premises, ASSIST aims to achieve the objectives of the FP7 transport themes by developing more integrated, greener and smarter transport systems, which will benefit society as a whole.
This report describes the potential social, economic and environmental impacts of transport policy measures (TPMs) in a qualitative, and if possible, quantitative manner.
