AET Transport and Mobility Forum: Webinar 07 April 2022

Webinar: Thursday 7 April 2022 11.00 - 12.00 CEST (10.00 - 11.00 BST/WEST)

Transport & Economy:

A glance in the rear-view mirror for shaping the future

At this event, two senior experts of transport economics present their research from the 1980s and 1990s in the context of the time passed and with an outlook to the future. Participants will be invited to join the discussion about how changing trends and new methods have affected the estimation of the impact of changes in car costs on car ownership and use, as well as what expected and unexpected phenomena have influenced the regulation of the railways sector after privatisation.

  • Gerard de Jong: Simulating car cost changes using an indirect utility model of car ownership and annual mileage

  • John Siraut: Regulation of the railways post-privatisation

The FREE webinar is organised as the sixth event of the AET Transport and Mobility Forum (previously AET Covid-19 Conversations) and will be chaired by Dr András Munkácsy (KTI, HU), member of the AET Council, featuring the following speakers:

  • Prof. Gerard de Jong (NL) is a research professor at the Institute for Transport Studies at University of Leeds and a director of the independent Dutch research institute Significance.

  • John Siraut (UK) is an Economist and director of Economics at the international engineering and consulting group Jacobs.

The discussion will be moderated by Dr Elisabete Arsenio, from LNEC (PT).

This is an event in celebration of the 50th European Transport Conference (ETC, previously the PTRC Summer Annual Meeting and the European Transport Forum). Both speakers won the Neil Mansfield Award at a previous conference (Gerard de Jong in 1989, John Siraut in 1997), for the best paper by an author under the age of 35.
