Micro-simulation for the prospective of sustainable cities in Europe


The goal of this project is to address the modeling and computational issues of integrating modern mobility simulations with the latest micro-simulation land use models. The project will advance the state-of-the-art in the field of the microsimulation of prospective integrated models of Land-Use and Transport (LUTI). On the modelling side, the main challenges are to integrate a demographic evolution module, to add an environmental module, to improve the overall consistency and, last but not least, to deal with the multi-scale aspects of the problem: several time horizons and spatial resolutions are involved.
