Webinar - Transport infrastructure finance, 3-Sept

Transport infrastructure funding and business models - characteristics and implications for project feasibility and outcomes
3rd September 2015, 12h00 pm

This webinar will present some of the initial results of the BENEFIT project, identifying the basic characteristics of transport infrastructure projects which may contribute to explain the feasibility and performance of the project, with a view to devising the most appropriate funding and financing schemes. It will focus on the following topics:
  • Funding schemes by João Bernardino (TIS.PT)
  • Business models by Athena Roumboutsos (AEGEAN)
  • Implementation context by Koen Verhoest (University Antwerp)

BENEFIT is an EU-project which takes an innovative approach by analysing funding schemes within an inter-related system. Funding schemes are successful (or not) depending on the Business Model that generates them. The performance of the Business Model is affected by the implementation and the transport mode context. It is matched successfully (or not) by a financing scheme. Relations between actors are described by a governance model (contracting arrangements).
João, Athena and Koen will tell you more about this project and the added value for you.

The BENEFIT project is funded from the European Union’s Horizon2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 635973
