Transport related environmental research in Austria
This paper surveys the transport related environmental research carried out in Austria. To make results comparable at the European level, the following commonly agreed criteria are used for its classification: intrinsic characteristics (problem definition, policy strategies, theoretical assumptions, method, and data) and meta-characteristics (scientific innovation, and contribution to real policy-making). Certain research issues arise from Austria's specific location and topography.
