- 6th Conference on Applied Infrastructure Research (??INFRADAY??) ??Supply Security and Reliability of European Infrastructure - Efficient Investment, Maintenance, and Operation between Liberalization and Regulation
- Berlin, Germany
- European infrastructure is currently facing a dilemma: on the one hand, liberalization and restructuring are far from being achieved on the way to a single European market; on the other hand, political and public pressure to provide ??reliable?? infrastructure is mounting. Both issues raise the question how to secure a sustainable and reliable European infrastructure provision. This question does not only apply to investment and financing issues, but also pertains to the maintenance and operation of infrastructures. Thus, the reform process of formerly state-owned monopolists in the various infrastructure sectors (transport, energy, telecommunication, water) needs to be continued, being subject to incentive-based regulation addressing quality and price concerns as well as restrictions due to tightened climate change policy. Papers may be theoretical or applied, and may address, amongst others, the following issues:I. Cross-sectional topicsII. Sectoral analyses, and case studies[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
