Dalarna University Awarded 3.4 Million SEK for Fossil-Free Transport and Regional Implementation Research

The grant has been awarded by the Swedish Energy Agency and will look at the challenges for socioeconomic efficiency.

The project will include studies of the role that decentralised decision-making in Sweden can play on the possibility to implement change in the Swedish transport system that will result in socioeconomic efficiency. More specifically, the project will investigate the incentives and requirements of regional actors in terms of executing a resource-efficient and inclusive change in the transport system, as well as the measures that can develop collaboration between different levels of organisation.

The project will be completed by Dalarna University and the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute as part of the programme "Människa, Energisystem och SAMhälle (MESAM)" within the timeframe October 1, 2019 to December 31, 2022.
