ADES - Airports as Drivers of Economic Success in Peripheral Regions
Transport and accessibility are key factors in terms of economic prosperity and long-term attractiveness. Especially due to globalisation, the importance of accessibility has been highlighted and for some regions the role of airports has become increasingly important.
Peripheral territories often suffer from weak accessibility which potentially may lead to unequal growth and hinder a polycentric development in Europe.
In order to ensure a balanced development, it is therefore important to guarantee a certain level of accessibility to more remote areas.
The project aims at providing a better understanding of the opportunities and perspectives of regional airport investments in peripheral areas from a European and National perspective, as well as its contribution to regional economic development.
The main aim is to provide inputs to policymakers on future options for infrastructure investment in peripheral regions in Europe.
