- European Commission – Joint Research Centre
Biagio Ciuffo received the Ph.D. degree in transportation engineering from the Department of Transportation Engineering of the University of Napoli Federico II in 2008. Then he held a three-year Post-Doctoral position at the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC), Ispra, Italy, working at the sustainability assessment of traffic and transport related measures and policies. He is now an Official of the European Commission working for the Directorate for Energy, Transport, and Climate of the JRC. In the past years he has led different projects concerning the analysis of the environmental and economic impacts of different transport policies. He is currently leading the JRC project focusing on the implications of connected and automated vehicles on transport efficiency, emissions and society.
Biagio Ciuffo has published more than 100 scientific reports and papers published in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings in transportation engineering. Among the others, he is one of the main authors of the JRC Report on the Future of Road Transport which analyses the wise implications of a connected, automated, low-carbon and shared mobility. He is also Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems and serves as reviewer for the most important journals in the transportation field.
For his research activities on the calibration of traffic simulation models he was awarded with the 2012 Greenshields Prize from the Transportation Research Board of the US National Academy of Science and with the 2013 Prize of the SimSub Committee of the Transportation Research Board of the US National Academy of Science.
