Abstract:
The department of Transport and Regional Economics (TPR) of the University of Antwerp was founded in 1979 and performs research on the interface between general and business economics. The department focuses on freight transport, ports and the maritime sector, air transport, urban distribution, innovation in transport and logistics, the appraisal of infrastructure projects, strategic analyses and policy recommendations, the interaction between transport and regional dimension, urban economics, and the interaction between mobility and the economy. During its existence the department has expanded its field of interest to the study of issues related to air transport and pipelines. In the future, the above mentioned topics will be further examined, taking into account future developments (regarding market and policy) and innovative topics. This department traditionally responds maximally to emerging challenges (related to society, industry as well as policy) and to translate these into research questions which are tackled using existing or newly developed techniques, often in an international partnership. Big challenges that arise (and have a large impact on transport) include climate change, varying energy costs and sources, labour, geographical market shifts and internationalisation.

The group studies the following maritime and port-related themes:
- Competition and cooperation in the maritime and port sector;
- Ports as junctions in the logistics chain;
- Productivity of terminals;
- Costs of maritime traffic;
- Ports policy;
- Strategic planning in ports;
- Traffic forecasting;
- Innovation in maritime transport and ports.

TPR is involved in various scientific networks such as TransportNET, the World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS) and houses the Flemish Policy Research Centre of Commodity and Passenger Transport (MOBILO). Furthermore, researchers of this department hold leading positions in academic associations such as the WCTRS and the European COST-action for Public-Private Partnerships in Transport (TU1001). They are also members of several journal editorial boards including for example the journal of ‘Maritime Policy and Management’. Regarding education and research on maritime issues and port development, the group closely cooperates with the Delft University of Technology, Technical University of Lisbon, University of Genova, University of the Aegean, University of South California, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, National University of Singapore, Singapore Nanyang University of Technology and Vietnam Maritime University.
