About the course
This course will be about how to manage the introduction of transport innovations from a public authority perspective. What mechanisms exist to test innovation, how can we evaluate the benefits of something that has not been implemented yet, and what can public authorities do to support private companies in developing their innovations? This focuses very much on issues of governance and policy and understanding the role of the local authority in leading development in the right direction.
Two different occasions
The course takes part during two occasions at two different locations, one in Sweden, Lund and one in the Netherlands, Amsterdam and Eindhoven, including lectures, workshops and study visits.
NOTE! The course takes place during two sessions on 2 days. The participants should attend both sessions to get the most out of the course and the specific workshop format. However, it is possible that two persons from one organisation could go to one session each.
