On October 7th 2014, EXPORT’s kick-off meeting took place at Oslo Tech (Oslo Science Park). The scientific partners participated in the meeting, along with Thorkel Askhildsen from the Norwegian Coastal Administration and Erik Høygaard from the Norwegian Environmental agency. The meeting agenda and the powerpoint presentations held at the meeting can be downloaded here shortly.
The first output report from EXPORT was published in January 2015, 'Application of production analysis in port economics: A critical review of modeling strategies and data management'. The report contains a critical review of the international literature using production analysis to ports and discusses modeling strategies and data management. It concludes by providing recommendations for the subsequent work.
