The ESPON TRACC project aims at taking up and updating the results of existing studies on accessibility at the European, national and regional scale, to extend the range of accessibility indicators by further indicators responding to new policy questions, to extend the spatial resolution of accessibility indicators and to explore the likely impacts of policies at the European and national scale to improve global, European and regional accessibility in the light of new challenges, such as globalisation, energy scarcity and climate change. Besides European-wide analyses, case studies at municipality and raster levels will be conducted in seven macro-regions, among them the three Baltic States. Mr. Schürmann is responsible for providing European-wide transport networks based upon the RRG GIS Database, and for conducting the accessibility case study for the Baltic States.
