'Lack of ambition in much-needed modernisation of Dutch railways'
According to Rob Goverde, professor of Railway Traffic Operations & Management, Dutch railways should switch much faster to the modern European ERTMS communication standard for rail traffic control and safety. This is a key message in his inaugural address to be held at TU Delft on Friday, 9 November.

ERC Starting Grant for new models of Mobility as a Service
Oded Cats is one of the seven TU Delft researchers awarded with an ERC Starting Grant. The European Research Council has awarded the grants (1,5 million euros for a five-year programme) which are intended to support scientists who are in the early stages of their career and have already produced excellent supervised work.
Can free public transport really reduce pollution?
The German government proposes making public transport free in its 5 most polluted cities, including Berlin. Dr. Oded Cats shared in interviews to German media his views based on research he conducted for the case of Tallinn, Estonia, which introduced free-fare public transport in 2013. Research results do not provide evidence that the measure proposed by the German government will achieve its objective.
