Virtual Mobility: Teleworking as an alternative to structural congestion

Project Details


Teleworking may well become the dominant work form of the 21st century because for most of the stakeholders involved the socio-economic benefits exceed the costs. The main purpose of this research is to assess whether the high implementation potential of teleworking in Brussels identified in previous analyses, can also be observed in other Belgian cities, such as Antwerp, Ghent, Hasselt, Liège, Namur and Charleroi. The first stage of the project will assess whether the same barriers and drivers observed in Brussels are also valid for other urban centres or whether significant differences exist among cities. Furthermore the influence will be assessed of teleworking implementation on passenger traffic flows in rural areas.
