4th workshop, 22 November 2016, Brussels
The fourth workshop of the project Mobility4EU has been the second of three workshops within the structured stakeholder consultation process, the Multi- Actor-Multi- Criteria Analysis (MAMCA).
The objective of the first MAMCA workshop was to present and discuss the final scenarios for mobility in 2030. Participants representing stakeholders from supply chain, passengers demand side of passenger and freight transport in all modes worked in groups to assess the importance of their criteria and evaluate the impact of packages of solutions.
The 4th workshop of the project Mobility4EU was held on 22 November 2016 in Brussels.
The workshop developed along:
- opening remarks by Ioana Adamescu from EC, DG RTD focused on the expectations of the outcomes of the project Mobility4EU.
- short introduction on the project by Beate Müller (VDI/VDE-IT)
- guest talk from Mind-Sets project “A new look at mobility –a question of common values and mind-sets” by Laurent Franckx (VITO)
- brief overview of the MAMCA methodology by Imre Keseru (VUB)
- presentation of the final version of the scenarios for mobility in Europe towards 2030: Data World, Digital Nomads, Slow is beautiful and Minimum Carbon. By Imre Keseru (VUB)
- first insights into the results of the initial weighting done by workshop participants by Imre Keseru (VUB)
Participants worked in small groups to evaluate the final scenarios according to the criteria that were deduced from the objectives of that stakeholder group. These objectives in turn have been surveyed before the workshop. The discussion followed the key questions:
- Would the scenario have a positive or negative or no impact on the respective criteria by 2030 compared to current trends for the particular criteria (i.e. the baseline scenario without intervention).
- What would be the magnitude of this scenario on the given qualitative scale?
- How could the criteria be measured and forecast with quantitative indicators based on real data?
The task will now be to finalize the scenarios and review criteria and also the introductory material that is provided for the stakeholders doing the evaluation process. Then, in the very structured methodological approach of MAMCA, these scenarios will be evaluated by an expert panel. The outcome of this process will directly feed into the final comprehensive vision of transport in Europe in 2030 and the action plan that details how to implement this vision.
32 participants were involved in the activities of the workshop, representing the various stakeholders’ groups.
