The Institute of Transport Economics and Transport Policy Studies ITETPS is a research centre at the HSE which was founded in 2011 to provide research, expert analysis and consultancy for government and non-government organisations and other entities.
The Institute has drawn up recommendations for improvements of transport policy in connection with a review of the transport strategy for 2030
We made an assessment of the current state of the Russian transport system, looking at the overall structure and forms of transport. We identified key divergences in the transport policy for the near future. We formulated proposals for transport policy aimed at improving the way all forms of transport function in line with modernisation of the country’s transport system. We presented an evaluation of the consequences of realising various scenarios, of inflation risks and political delays.
