OPTIMISM workshop for experts on 18th September 2012 in Rome
The OPTIMISM project is holding an expert workshop in Rome on 18th September 2012 as part of a Delphi study within Work Package 3 (WP3) to build future mobility scenarios. This workshop follows a first online survey to collect opinions on the importance of critical factors in terms of their impact on passenger mobility and the uncertainty of the trend related to the factor. The survey closed in mid-July and some 143 questionnaires were received, of which 126 were fully completed.
The workshop will gather experts who have participated in the online survey with the aim of facilitating interactive and lively discussions about the foreseeable trends of critical factors and how these might shape future mobility patterns. Café-style conversations in restricted groups will enable the sharing of theories, stories and ideas. A final electronic voting session will identify the factors characterised by highest importance and uncertainty which will serve as dimensions for scenario building. A project management meeting will be held for all the partners in the project during the same week of the workshop.
