dub dockSustainable development
The changing economic landscape, and transition from traditional employment sectors, has altered rental and buyer demand in the residential market.  As a consequence of these changes, transport is an ever more important demand influencer, with an increasing emphasis on sustainable transport modes.
 
What is sustainable development?
Sustainable development is usually defined as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs[1]”.  One of the main threats to sustainable development is “transport congestion[which] has been rising rapidly and is approaching gridlock.  This mainly affects urban areas, which are also challenged by problems such as inner city decay, sprawling suburbs, and concentrations of acute poverty and social exclusion.”[2]

In keeping with Transport Insights’ commitment to innovation, we are keen to pursue development of new approaches, tools and techniques to address the transport related economic, social and environmental challenges facing Ireland and Europe.  As a result, we warmly welcome Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation programme from 2014 to 2020.  As an SME, Transport Insights finds it particularly encouraging to see the emphasis given to SMEs by the European Commission in devising and delivering the programme.
