The Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis (KiM) harnesses the knowledge the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management needs to carry out its tasks in the field of mobility and accessibility. We also makes this knowledge freely available to third parties.
We disseminate our knowledge by publishing our reports in the public domain. We provide knowledge for the policymaking processes within the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (knowledge at the table). And we draw attention within the ministry to topics arising from current developments in policy, science and society.
For all forms of mobility
We do this for all forms of mobility: passenger and freight transport by road, public transport, civil aviation and transport by water. We also investigate subjects related to mobility, such as sustainability, safety and the relationship between the public and private sectors.
From multiple perspectives
We address topics from different angles and from different disciplines. Our researchers have a range of academic backgrounds, including traffic engineering, economics, social geography, regional planning, sociology, mathematics, psychology and public administration. We ensure that the ministry is able to develop policy with a sound knowledge base.
