ACROSS : Assessing the sociocultural effects on mobility behaviours in CROSS-border areas
ACROSS project aims at assessing the sociocultural effects on mobility behaviours in cross-border areas of Luxembourg. The theoretical framework is based on the assumption that people’s mobility behaviours are guided by their individual position in a three-dimensional space combining the geographic position, the social position and the cognitive position. By analysing the psychosocial and environmental determinants of attitudes leading to such behaviours, this project will help to identify efficient incentives to promote the use of public transportation and soft modes. The project is funded by FNR CORE 2010 (SR/783207) for a duration of 3 years (01.02. 2011 – 30.11.2014). Survey and case studies: European Institutions in Luxembourg, Brussels and Strasbourg. The methodology concerns econometric/statistical analysis, multivariate analysis, attitude theory and cognitive map analysis
