Professor Bert Van Wee, (TU Delft) will give our keynote paper at the conference this year. “Challenges to ‘desirable' transport futures"

Professor Van Wee will discuss several topics related to desirable transport futures, including the role of technologies, the importance of adaptivity and flexibility of policies, long term robustness of the transport system, the trade-off between accessibility and livability, health as an upcoming theme, and the process of implementation. A key lesson is that the pain is in the change: the process from the current to a desirable transport future, not in the outcome. Another lesson is that cycling might be a solution for the tension between accessibility and livability."
