The TRANSFORuM project is proposed by a consortium of twelve well connected, but independent and experienced policy advisers and researchers from across nine European countries who offer a “fresh ap-proach” to helping to implement four key goals of the European Transport White Paper.
The project will initiate a discussion forum of relevant actors by organising meetings and thematic groups on the four selected White Paper goals. The forum will form the environment for a balanced and open discussion process with special attention to research and innovation. It will be linked with all relevant related activities and networks. TRANSFORuM will produce concrete implementation-oriented outputs, including recommendations and roadmaps of joint actions as required by the actors and stakeholders.
The TRANSFORuM concept is based on a proven process including wide consultation especially of actors who are directly connected to implementation of innovative policies and measures.
The project partners will work along seven work packages and four Thematic Groups - each of which led by a partner with comprehensive experience. Over a lifetime of 24 months TRANSFORUM will deliver 11 stakeholder meetings directly involving 260 stakeholders and actors. Furthermore a quality stakeholder database will be set up.
The project cost is 1.499.387€ and includes efforts of 148.5 person months, i.e. over 6 full-time experts over the project lifetime.
The project activities are carefully targeted to fully reach the desired content and communication impacts. A permanent internal and external quality control will be applied, and a risk management process is in place.
The project will apply targeted dissemination and communication activities to stimulate implementation of the White Paper goals.
