MAESTRO will provide practical advice on the selection, design and evaluation of transport-related pilot projects, play a supporting role in the current 4th Framework Programme, and assist with the preparation for future Programmes
In so doing, MAESTRO aims to strengthen the link between pilot projects and their contribution to identifiable policy aspects, thus bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical applications and providing a synthesising role for pilot projects within the RTD Transport Research Programme.
The MAESTRO project identifies the following main goals:
£ to conduct a review of existing evaluation methodologies, and assess their value in relation to policy objectives,
£ to develop a Maestro methodology for the selection, design and evaluation of pilot and demonstration projects within the Transport RTD workplan,
£ to develop evaluation procedures to be incorporated into the MAESTRO methodology,
£ to play a supporting advisory role in the Transport RTD programme in the setting up and establishment of all pilot and demonstration projects,
£ based upon the MAESTRO methodology, to produce practical guidelines for the selection, design and evaluation of pilot and demonstration projects in the Transport RTD workplan.
