The first specific objective is to attain a more precise representation of the freight flows between European countries and the rest of the world.
The project also aims to facilitate the use and uptake of the model within other countries and regions.
WOLRDNET seeks active participation from INCO target countries and/or international organisations interested in this action. The development of a common, international modelling framework gives policy makers a consistent, quantitative baseline for technology, transport, energy, environment and economic trends. The project will implement a new communications network with regions and countries outside of Europe to improve mutual understanding of and planning for freight flows on a global basis.
