Transport & Mobility Leuven (TML) performs applied research to support policy decisions. It is our mission to help society by offering scientifically sound analyses. For this, we rely on quantitative research: modelling, statistical analyses, simulations, and prognoses.

Our work fields are traffic, passenger and freight transport and the related economic impact and environmental problems. The integration between passenger and freight transport, economics and environment gives us a unique position within Europe.

Transport & Mobility Leuven has been founded in 2002. Its shareholders are the K.U.Leuven (, a Belgian university, and TNO, a Dutch research institute ( The knowledge of both institutes has been bundled and further applied to support policy decisions. The excellent relation with our shareholders guarantees that TML is always up to date with the most recent state-of-the-art.

Our focus is both scientifically as practical: we are the bridge between the university and society. Our clients are the European Commission (DG TREN, DG ENV), national governments and administrations, local and regional authorities as well as sector associations and non-profit organisations. They base their policy on our analyses and prognoses.

We perform our projects with great concern for independency and openness. Transport & Mobility Leuven does not relate to road construction companies, economic sectors or political parties. We think it is important to communicate self-critical and open on our methods and sources. Not only the end results, but also the intermediate results and methods are always clearly stated. This way, you get insight and trust in our research results, which enables you to defend them.
