|Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation
Purpose and goal
The purpose and goal was to bring together different actors interested in seamless transportation solutions for attractive cities. The objectives have been met through a number of workshops, an application for step 2 and a communication plan. We present a solution with high potential. We have adopted a process-oriented approach to develop knowledge within three clearly identified, defined and prioritized areas: (1) seamless travel, (2) methods of collaboration and dialogue in network relationships, (3) transport hubs as service platforms for seamless travel.
Results and expected effects
The overall outcome is that the problems and needs of seamless travel in attractive cities now partially been mapped through our joint efforts. This has in turn resulted in a consortium that will together develop seamless travel where public transport is combined with the user´s need for increased life satisfaction. The final report (attached) indicated our measurable outcomes and deliverables during stage 1, among other things, a project agreement and an application step 2.
Approach and implementation
The project´s purpose and goal has been to set up a constellation of scientists, public/private sector and industry. An overall objective is to develop seamless travel and contribute to attractive cities. In order to succeed, we have conducted a number of workshops. A number of actors have joined our network. Notices about the project, constellation and our workshops have been published in newsletters and on websites.
