Mobility4EU Expert Workshop on “Evaluation of Scenarios”
The workshop ”Evaluation of scenarios” of the project Mobility4EU was held on 18 May 2017 in Brussels, together with external experts. It forms an integral step within the structured stakeholder consultation process, the Multi-Actor- Multi-Criteria Analysis (MAMCA) that is embedded in the project.
In the framework of the multi-actor multi-criteria analysis (MAMCA), stakeholder groups relevant for the future transport system in Europe, their objectives and their unique set of criteria for evaluating the fulfillment of these objectives have been identified. Also four broad scenarios co-created for the future of transport in Europe encompassing a number of dominant societal trends, technological and organisational solutions that respond to these trends.
The next step of the MAMCA is to evaluate what impact these scenarios would have on the stakeholders’ criteria. This has been done internally by the project partners from VUB. The validation of this work was done by external experts. The workshop on Evaluation of scenarios served to finalize these validations together with the external experts. Especially, those evaluations were discussed where there was no agreement between the internal evaluators and/or the external validators. The evaluations will now be entered in the MAMCA software together with the weights from the stakeholder survey to calculate the ranking of the scenarios for each stakeholder group to analyse synergies and conflicts. The 3 th and final public MAMCA workshop “Consensus building” will provide the opportunity for stakeholders to consolidate the results and to reach consensus on scenario(s) that are preferred by all stakeholder groups. This preferred scenario will be one important building block for creating a vision for transport in Europe in 2030.
