Projects and articles of Inge Mayeres
ResearcherInge Mayeres has a PhD in economics (KU Leuven). She worked at VITO and at the Belgian Federal Planning Bureau. Before that she was a postdoctoral researcher of the Fund of Scientific Research Flanders and did research at the Centre for Economic Studies of the KU Leuven. During her career she has made economic evaluations of various aspects of transport policy. For example she analysed innovative transport pricing systems such as road pricing, the reform of car taxation, the impact of low-emission zones and using sustainable fuels in the aviation industry. In addition, she has expertise in European transport policies, the development of long term transport outlooks, and the determinants of the external costs of transport.
Review of recent studies and policies addressing non-combustion particulate matter emissions from break, tyre and road wear
Emissions of non-combustion pollutants from vehicles have increased over the past two decades. This includes emissions from break wear, tyre wear, and road wear.
Impact studies SmartMove
The Brussels Government reached an agreement on 3 December on a smart road pricing scheme. This was substantiated by TML in collaboration with the Université Saint-Louis - Bruxelles. Our impact study (NL and FR) lists the effects on mobility and external costs of transport, budgetary effects and socio-economic effects.
