QUALITY OF INSTITUTIONS AND TOTAL FACTOR PRODUCTIVITY IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

The key challenge for mid- and long-term policy in the European Union countries is to use the potentials of knowledge-based economy (KBE), which is a condition for maintaining high total factor productivity in Europe. For this reason, the relationship between the quality of an institutional system and total factor productivity in the EU countries has been examined. The quality of the institutional system is defined here from the perspective of incentives that influence the use of the potential

the well-being and prosperity of individuals. Economic cohesion is defined by the level of GDP per capita in PPS. Observation of these three phenomena forms the basis for the construction of panel data models and undertaking the assessment of the relationships between smart growth and economic and social cohesion factors. The study was performed on the group of 27 European Union countries in the period of 2002-2011.

URBAN PUBLIC TRANSPORT WITH THE USE OF ELECTRIC BUSES – DEVELOPMENT TENDENCIES

Summary. The programing documents of the European Union determine the direction of transport systems development, including large cities and agglomerations. The context of these actions which aim to transform into ecologically clean and sustainable transport system is a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Assuming that public transport will significantly reduce the use of combustion-powered buses, studies on urban logistic enabling the use of electric buses for public transport

COMMON SENSE

COMMON SENSE is a new project that supports the implementation of European Union marine policies such as the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) and the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). The project, which was launched in November 2013, is funded by the EC Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and has been designed to directly respond to requests for integrated and effective data acquisition systems by developing innovative sensors that will contribute to our understanding of how the marine

Detection of microbial contamination in potable water by Nanowire technology

It is well known that the lack of control and sanitation of water in developing countries has cause very significant epidemiological events. In the last decades the situation of water supplies and sanitation has improve all over the world.  Despite of it, in the European Union there are a considerable number of confirmed cases of water-borne infections even though the restrictive law.  Electronic Noses (ENs) has shown to be a very effective and fast tool for monitoring microbiological

ACTIVE MEASURES AS PART OF DIALOGUE MARKETING PROMOTING THE USE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN RURAL AREAS

The SmartMove project is working to advance innovative marketing and mobility solutions in eight rural and peripheral European regions and is co-funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Union. Through tailor-made strategies, it aims to provide information and encourage people to use public transport in their region. Sparsely populated rural areas in Europe are facing tremendous social changes due to shrinking and ageing populations. Because of the scattered settlement

TESTS OF PHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF FUEL AND BALLAST FRACTIONS FROM WASTE PROCESSING INSTALLATIONS

Economic development of a country as well as growing consumption causes a rise in the amount of wastes, mainly municipal wastes. Basic sources of the municipal wastes are households and public buildings. When Poland joined European Union, it was necessary to introduce many changes related to the waste management. Gradually implemented actions aim at limiting the amounts of municipal wastes deposited in landfills and reducing biodegradable fraction of wastes. Production of fuel from the

THE OPTIMIZATION OF TRUCKS FLEET SCHEDULE IN VIEW OF THEIR INTERACTION AND RESTRICTIONS OF THE EUROPEAN AGREEMENT OF WORK OF CREWS

The importance of compliance with the schedule of work of road trains on the highway transport network of the European Union is shown. The possible options for work and rest modes for truck drivers on international routes have been analyzed. A model for optimizing the truck fleet operation plan has been developed. This model has two levels, that is, the general graph contains subgraphs designed with incompatible vertices to determine the active and shortest schedule. Each of the subgraphs

ANALYSIS OF CONVERGENCE OF EUROPEAN REGIONS WITH THE USE OF COMPOSITE INDEX

Convergence study is related to several crucial issues. One of those problems is an individual character of every region in the selected area, as the regions established accordingly to the European classification system NUTS-2 are not homogeneous. Therefore, while analysing convergence in the European Union, regions with extremely dissimilar characteristics (for example GDP per capita) are taken under consideration. Absolute β-convergence means that all of the investigated regions tend to the

The application of the proposed measure to assessing the resilience to crisis in the period 2006-2011 is presented for regions meant as the European Union NUTS2 units. The measure is based on comparable data, which allowed for using only six variables measuring changes in GDP, salaries, investments, household income, employment

AGE OF A PASSENGER CAR AND ITS INFLUENCE ON ACCIDENTS WITH FATALITIES IN POLAND

1. INTRODUCTION Road safety is a major society issue on a global scale. In 2013, more than 30,000 people died on the roads of the European Union. For every death on Europe’s roads, there are estimated 4 permanently disabling injuries such as damage to the brain or spinal cord, 8 serious injuries, and 50 minor injuries [1]. The threat of road accidents in Poland has been very high for years. Fatalities per million inhabitants in Poland, despite downward trend compared to other European Union

Though information and communication technologies (ICT) have entered into all traffic and transport systems, the levels of ICT penetration achieved in controlling, monitoring, and managing of system operation and processes are currently quite different [1-5]. One of the reasons for that is the lack of homogenous ICT standards and, as a result, the technological barriers for interconnectivity

COLLISION MODEL SIMPLIFICATIONS IN THE DYNAMIC ANALYSIS WITH THE SDC METHOD

The number of motor vehicles in the European Union (EU) is constantly increasing, which is causing an increase in the traffic volume. This, in turn, boosts the economic development of the EU member states. However, an increase in traffic volume leads to road collisions and accidents, which lead to high repair costs. Some accident victims report fake vehicle damage to extort money for repairs. There are criminal groups that stage accidents for this purpose; thus, these claims are very difficult

In the year 2009, in Poland greenhouse gas emissions from road transport amounted to 42.5 million tons (4.84% of the EU member states) and CO emissions were 41.9 million tons (analogically, 4.83% of environment pollutions in the European Union). This causes an emission of fumes into the atmosphere. The policy of sustainable development pursued by
