The EPA recognizes the importance of scientific research to stimulate the development of the parking sector in Europe. On September 22, 2017 the European Parking Association has agreed a Memorandum of Understanding with three Academic Institutions:
Erasmus Centre for Urban, Port and Transport Economics – Erasmus University Rotterdam (Erasmus UPT)
Universita’ degli Studi di ROMA “La Sapienza” – Dipartimento di Ingeneria Civile, Edile e Ambientale (UNIROMA1)
Cracow University of Technology – Institute of Road and Railway Engineering (PK)
The aim is to stimulate and disseminate scientific research on parking related themes. Apart from the initial founding members of this initiative further academic institutions that are interested in collaborating accepting the context of the MOU can be admitted to the EPA Academic network.
