Transport & Mobility Leuven
Diestsesteenweg 57
3010 Leuven

Transport & Mobility Leuven NV (TML) conducts fundamental and applied research to support policy decisions. It is our mission to help society by offering scientifically sound analyses. To this end, we rely on quantitative research: modelling, statistical analyses, simulations, and prognoses. Our research fields are traffic, passenger and freight transport and the related economic impact and environmental problems. Transport & Mobility Leuven is a private research company founded in 2002 by the KU Leuven. Our focus is both scientific as practical: we are the bridge between the university and society. TML works for governments and businesses and supports their policies by research. In this way, new research needs are discovered and TML can adequately develop new research initiatives.
TML lead the SESAR WP-E project ACCHANGE http://www.tmleuven.be/project/acchange/home.htm The focus of this project was on institutional change for the ATM sector and TML has built a number of economic models to evaluate the current situation in the sector.
TML leads the overall project and the following subtasks:

  • Exploration of alternative market designs
  • Quantitative analysis of various options using economic models
  • Formulate conclusions and provide a vision to implement the proposed approaches

Nommon Solutions and Technologies S.L.
Calle de Diego de León 47
28006 Madrid

Nommon is a research-intensive technology company that provides decision support tools and consulting services for organisational intelligence and policy assessment. For this purpose, Nommon integrates supporting databases with analytical and simulation models that make use of a variety of mathematical tools, from data mining or operations research, to the most recent and innovative methods from complex systems science. Nommon works in sectors whose performance emerges from the complex interaction of interdependent policies, technologies, and socio-economic trends, including transport systems, logistics and supply chain, energy and environment, and urban and regional planning.
Nommon is particularly active in the field of transport research. Nommon’s research agenda encompasses three main threads:

  • big data processing and spatio-temporal data analysis;
  • complex systems modelling and data-driven simulation; and
  • information visualisation and visual analytics.

In February 2015 Nommon launched Kineo (www.kineo-analytics.com), a Nommon subsidiary company providing analytics solutions for the exploitation of geolocation information. Kineo analyses anonymised geolocation data to provide meaningful and actionable information about people’s activity and mobility patterns. The areas of application include transport planning, among others.

Nommon’s main task in COMPAIR is to contribute to the modelling work (WP4) together with HUJI. Nommon first focuses on the definition of an integrated assessment framework for a consistent evaluation of different institutional market designs (WP2). Nommon will then be in charge of developing an agent-based model to simulate and assess the impacts of institutional designs as defined in WP2. The modelling work will draw on Nommon’s expertise in the application of agent-based modelling and network analysis to transport policy assessment, and very especially on the experience in the simulation of auction-based markets acquired in the frame of the SESAR WP-E project ACCESS (www.access-sesar.eu). Nommon will also have a supporting role in the identification of the various options for institutional change (WP2) and will also contribute to the conclusions (WP5) and the dissemination and stakeholder consultation tasks (WP6).

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
The Hebrew University, Mt. Scopus
9190501 Jerusalem

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel’s first university, is a multidisciplinary institution of higher learning and research, where intellectual pioneering, cutting-edge scientific discovery, and a passion for learning flourish. Research and creativity have always been the cornerstone of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem since its inception in 1928. For over 80 years, Hebrew University researchers have not only carried out outstanding basic research, but have also responded to the needs of society. The University is justly proud of its position at the cutting edge of world science. Its researchers publish widely in leading international scientific and scholarly journals, conduct collaborative research projects with noted scholars from other countries and compete successfully for research grants from international and national funding sources (NIH, DFG, EU, Human Frontier, ERC, Howard Hughes, ISF).The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has been ranked among the top universities in the world in two comprehensive surveys conducted by The Times Higher Education Supplement of London and Shanghai University. In The Times listings of the world’s 100 top universities in specific academic fields, the Hebrew University was ranked 43 rd place in the arts and humanities; 44th in social sciences, 52nd in science, and 63rd in biomedicine. Funding of more than $107 million supports 4,500 research projects in progress. Within the framework of these projects, 45% of all the student body (24,000) are graduate students and are working towards advanced degrees, gaining invaluable experience as the project leaders of tomorrow. The University has educated and trained thousands of students - 28% of all doctoral candidates in Israel are enrolled at the Hebrew University- providing the skilled manpower needed for many aspects of Israel's development.

The faculty and students that will work on this project are located at the Jerusalem School of Business Administration. Since its establishment in 1952 at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the School's goal has been to develop the next generation of business leaders and push the envelope of knowledge in the field of business management. The school attaches great importance to the quality of its academics, its teaching, and to the combination of theoretical academic research and real-world applications.

Main tasks & match with partner’s The members of Hebrew University working on this project will be responsible for developing, programming and analyzing a network model of European airspace, based on a game-theoretic approach, to describe the ATM system (WP4). The aim is to quantify the impact of competition on all profile stakeholders thus estimating the value of a reorganization of the system that will enable the removal of the geographic monopolies that exist today. Nicole Adler has applied game theoretic principles to analyze airports, airlines, high speed rail networks and multi-national enterprises and more recently to understand the ATM system in Europe in a WP-E project called ACCHANGE. She has developed network congestion games, competitive Nash multiple player simultaneous games and hybrid cooperative-competitive games in order to quantify the impact of counter-factuals in transportation networks since her Ph D. in 1999.
HUJI project members will also have a contributing role towards the exploration of institutional options (WP2), the development of economic models (WP3) and the formulation of conclusions (WP5).

Main tasks & match with partner’s profile The main tasks of SLOT in the COMPAIR project are related to the dissemination activities and the stakeholder consultation (WP6). This contains, among others the establishment of an expert advisory board and the maintenance of communication with that group during the lifetime of the project. The goal is to get feedback from ATM sector experts on the topic and the proposed institutional designs of the COMPAIR project. This will enable the consortium to better understand real-world impacts on various stakeholders and will contribute to the validity of the project’s approach.
Another element of dissemination and stakeholder consultation tasks is to organise a validation event in form of a stakeholder workshop. The invitations for this workshop will be sent out to a broad group of ATM sector stakeholders. The results of the project will be presented to the stakeholders and experts. These results can be critically discussed which can lead to new insights. Slot Consulting will also have a contributing role in the other work packages of the COMPAIR project.
