The Working Group Transport Economics & Policy has created a website to present its activities: http://ectri-wgg.inrets.fr/

- define research program on common fields of interest and promote scientific collaborations in these fields
- form consortia to prepare FP7 proposals

Current activities: Definition of research program in following fields:
- economic evaluation (demand and supply estimation, evaluation of projects, valuation of non-market goods, ex ante and ex post evaluation…)
- regulation and financing (pricing and taxation, financing, creation of competitive markets
- transport policies (political design, interest groups, levels of decision, EU equity assessment..)
- preparation of FP7 proposals

The TWG Transport, Economics and Policy also prepared inputs for the FP7 update. These inputs have been gathered in a report entitled "White spots in the European Transport research traced by ECTRI's Thematic Working Groups". This report was released to the EC in June 2009.

In 2011, the TWG has actively contributed to the European Investment Bank public consultation “Towards a Refined Policy for EIB Lending to the Transport Sector”. The ECTRI contribution has been well received and most suggestions have been taken into account by the EIB.
