Introduction to the Fruit Basket, project Output Library

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) Programme 2007-2013 financed in total 90 transnational cooperation projects covering a wide scope of themes. In order to share the work done with you, the Programme has created this online basket of projects – a Fruit Basket if you will (formally called the Output Library).

The Fruit Basket may be used for diverse purposes. For example, when you have a specific challenge in your area with regard to transport, you may want to find out what has been done previously in that area and you will most likely find useful documents that would increase your knowledge in the specific topic. Take your pick!

Title:
Evaluation tool for wider economic effects of railway investments
Date:
Feb 2014
URL:
Description:
Computable General Equilibrium models (CGE) are powerful tools in the assessment of economic impacts of infrastructure investments, but the use of these models is expensive and requires specific skills, software and knowledge. This developed tool (for Sweden & Finland) is an accessible tool that is simple to use but gives results that are based on comprehensive CGE-modelling. The wider economic impacts calculated by this tool are supplementary to the results of a standard project assessment (CBA). http://www.pirkanmaa.fi/files/files/BGLC/BGLC_WP_53_report_Final_12022014.pdf
