Sixteen papers, originally presented at the European Research Conference held in Portugal, in April 1995, consider policies related to European transport networks. Papers focus on assessing changes in integrated European transport network operations; synergy in networks; the concept of network synergies in economic theory and policy implications; managing openness in transport and regional development; traffic congestion, etc.

Trans-European transport networks in the European Union have been based on plans submitted by the member states. One of the largest elements is the planned North European High Speed Rail Network (Paris - Brussels - Koeln - Amsterdam - London). This involves five member states, of which one, France, has completed its contribution.
