Indicative research areas include:

  • Assessment of the environmental impacts of transport.
  • Air transport systems and services.
  • Maritime transport systems and services.
  • Pipeline transport.
  • Transport energy issues (energy efficiency, renewable and sustainable energy).
  • Economic impacts of transport.
  • Air and maritime transport policy issues.
  • Air and maritime transport infrastructure management.


Laboratory C1: Maritime Transport Systems and Services

Responsible: M. Boile

The Laboratory specializes in the design, planning, management and operations of ports and maritime transport systems.  More specifically, it emphasizes on liner and tramp shipping, short and coastal shipping as well as on port and marine terminal related issues.

 Some indicative research fields that fall under the responsibility of this Laboratory can be summarized to the following:

  • International shipping including liner and tramp shipping
  • Coastal and short sea shipping,
  • Cruise shipping and related maritime services
  • Port and marine terminal planning, management and operations
  • Shiping and port logistics systems
  • Port environmental management systems
  • Safety and security in ports and maritime transport
  • Maritime and port economics
  • Information and Communication Technologies and their impacts on ports and maritime transport
  • Energy efficiency and alternative fuels in ports and maritime transport


Laboratory C2: Air Transport Systems and Services

Responsible: E. Sdoukopoulos

This Laboratory focuses on the study of the air transport system covering aspects of design, planning, operation and management of airports and passenger and freight air transport services. The air transport system is studied in its full spectrum including all operations in the transport chain, from the airport of origin to the airport of destination considering both passengers and goods.

Some indicative research fields that fall under the responsibility of this Laboratory can be summarized to the following:

  • Infrastructure design and capacity planning of airports
  • Ground handling operations, land and air side access
  • Air traffic control systems
  • Operational design of airport infrastructure / capacity design / security issues
  • Demand forecasting, traffic management and optimization of operations
  • Economic and financial issues, airport investment
  • Application of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and analysis of their impact on the air transport system
  • Environmental impacts of airport operations and air transport services


Laboratory C3: Environmental and Energy Impacts of Transport Systems

Responsible: A. Tromaras

The Laboratory specializes in research targeting the impact of traffic and transport systems on health and the environment. It examines the energy consumption of and the use of alternative fuels in transport systems. It also deals with the issues of transport infrastructure asset management and the infrastructure condition monitoring.

Some indicative research fields that fall under the responsibility of this Laboratory can be summarized to the following:

  • Data collection and classification on the environmental impacts of transport systems
  • Assessment of the environmental impacts of transport
  • Health impacts of transport
  • Environmental impact assessment of urban transport systems
  • Energy management and exploitation of sustainable energy sources
  • Sustainable transport infrastructure asset management and operations
  • Infrastructure condition monitoring, non-destructive testing
  • Energy consumption in transport
  • Pipeline transport planning and operations
  • Asset management techniques and methods


Laboratory 
C4: Economic and Social Impacts of Transport Systems

Responsible: A. Anagnostopoulou

This Laboratory deals with the analysis and evaluation of the economic and social impacts from the operation of transport systems and services. It examines traveller's behaviour in relation with policy formulation and implementation in various transport areas. In the context of the above, the Laboratory examines the problems within the transport economics environment and develops the appropriate tools and techniques to address these problems.

Some indicative research fields that fall under the responsibility of this Laboratory can be summarized to the following:

  • Socio-economic analysis of transport
  • Models and techniques for economic evaluation of transport systems and services
  • Assessment of transport investments, transport economic appraisal
  • Internalization of transport externalities
  • Analysis of traveler behavior
  • Assessment of the role and the impact of transport systems on the economy and development of the country and its regions
  • Examination of the relationships and interactions between economic development and transport
  • Use of economic analysis tools and socio-economic impact assessment techniques in the field of transport
  • Pricing of transport services, subsidies, forms of financing.
