Description:The issue CTS and the Institute for Transport Studies, Leeds University, has had several previous cooperative agreements. This project is supposed to provide a platform for subsequent cooperation, by connecting Dr. Andrew Smith as an affiliated guest researcher/professor. While the intention is to let the agreement cover three years (2015 - 2017) the present project only concerns the first year of this period. The overall purpose is for the CTS environment to benefit from the expertise in Dr. Smiths modelling skills relating to cost and productivity analysis with particular focus on the analysis of railway costs. The framework of this deal is for CTS to cover 20 percent of his salary plus costs for travel, hotels and per diem from at least three visits to Stockholm per year.
