PLANET addresses the challenges of assessing the impact of emerging global trade corridors on the TEN-T network and ensuring effective integration of the European to the Global Network by focusing in two key R&D pillars.
PLANET will establish self-contained scenarios of possible future world states, derived from macroeconomic, geo-demographic and political intelligence. A hybrid qualitative/quantitative approach will be used to create several medium-term scenarios in the field of global logistics and to assess the impact of logistics industry parameters and emerging industry innovations.
Three Living Labs (including the ports of Valencia, Rotterdam, etc.) will contribute to the strategic analysis of global flows (based on the corridors where they are located), the analysis of corridor infrastructure issues, and the investigation of integration of the respective global corridor with the TEN-T.
