Objective

Deliverables

  • Synthesis report including EMPOWER model

    Deliverable D1.1 will include the following componentes- - results of systematic review of behaviour change models, theories and principles - description of EMPOWER model (M8) - results from the micro level exploratory research experiments

  • Generic Business cases

    D3.4 (Generic business cases) this deliverable consists of generic business cases (templates) which are created using data which is collected when applying the lead city business models on the living labs connected to this project. In addition to the generic cases, a business modelling toolkit will be compiled within this deliverable, including guidelines that enable uptake cities to adapt the generic business cases to local context. The business models designed for a service shall be adaptable to local constraints and conditions in the uptake city. The anticipated structure for the toolkit is that it will include comprehensive instructions for how to: 1) adapt the value proposition to the local situation and context, 2) identify areas with the most potential for an incentive scheme, as well as areas which should be avoided, 3) define key drivers and enablers for success given the context and 4) setup an appropriate process architecture and organisation structure to run the service in the city.

  • Operational Management Services document and Test results

    The deliverable gives an overview of the Mobility Service infrastructure implemented at the living labs and describes the management, maintenance and support procedures provided. It includes test results from functional verification.

  • Report of ex-ante and ex-post assessments of incentive schemes in the EMPOWER cities

    A report will be written containing an explanation of the ex-ante and ex-post assessments carried out in task 6.4 and 6.6, along with the results of these assessments and any specific and overall conclusions which can be drawn from these results and the process of completing the assessments.

  • End-user Application documentation

    The deliverable describes the end-user applications and its key features in greater detail. It integrates requirements from work-packages 1 to 3, local conditions of living labs, target groups and case studies. The deliverable includes user guidelines.

  • Brochure detailing the key success/failure factors from the assessed social innovations

    The results of task 6.1 will be presented in a brochure to be used by anyone interested in implementing social innovation measures. The brochure will contain the key factors, found in task 6.1, which led to the success (or failure) of the social innovation measures/interventions examined in WP1 (self-organisation, sharing/group schemes), in the form of a features which should replicate (or avoid).

  • Dissemination plan

    D7.2 will describe the general plan regarding all dissemination activities of the consortium partners and work packages during the project. This links directly to D7.4 where the realisation of different dissemination activities will be reported.

  • Lead city specific business models

    D3.3 (Lead city business models) documents the business model designs for the four lead cities involved in the project, including for example analyses and identification of: • Value propositions and user groups • Channels and customer relationships • Key activities, partners, and resources • Cost and revenue estimates

  • Living Lab Plan

    D5.1 will report on all preparation work during for all living labs. This will include analysis of the local situation, the organisation of the local experiments, and the characteristics of the work to be carried out in each of the labs.

  • Business model methodology

    D3.2 (Business model methodology) is report that presents the base for the methodology and process that should be used to generate committed business model designs for the lead cities. It will include a review of state of the art business model methodology with the purpose to ground the work model to be used in EMPOWER.

  • International review of business models and best practice

    D3.1 (International review of business models and best practice) will be a report that documents the identification of key success factors and fail factors in incentive scheme business models. It will consist of a review of best practice cases and scientific publications. The review will be organized using a structure model for case and literature review.

  • Final Dissemination Report

    D7.4 will comprise the dissemination final report. This will synthesis the totality of dissemination activity to date, planned dissemination following the end of the project and plans for legacy beyond the formal lifetime of the work.

  • Quality Procedures Plan: Project quality manual

    A project Quality Plan will be developed, included procedures for resolving problems (both technical and management), deliverable format and review. All partners will take a role in implementing the Quality Control Plan

  • Take Up Cities experiences: a roadmap for active take-up of implementations

    D7.3 will report on the operational experiences concerning the EMPOWER system for the eight Take-up Cities. Based on these different experiences, the aim is to synthesis across the whole in order to derive common good practice to be used for implementing travel schemes in other projects/cities/contexts.

  • International review of social innovation in policy implementations

    This Deliverable will identify the initiatives and implementations that use social innovation to achieve a reduction in the use of CFV. This will involve an international search of a range of sources including published academic articles and professional trade magazines and ‘grey literature’ using advanced systematic literature search techniques and the professional library services available at universities libraries. In addition the networks of professional practitioners involved in EMPOWER will be utilised to identify relevant ‘grey literature’. The resulting list of initiatives and implementations will be synthesised to provide a typology based on the key characteristics; and effectiveness on the reduction in CFV use; and impact on different sectors of the travelling public, especially women and other vulnerable groups.

  • Techniques and processes for EMPOWER Toolkit,

    This Deliverable will build on D2.1; insights from parallel EMPOWER workpackages and tasks 2.2 and 2.3 to identify the techniques and processes that are effective in reducing CFV use and can be included in the EMPOWER toolkit. This Deliverable will detail the design of the techniques and processes to contribute to the EMPOWER toolkit. The toolkit techniques and processes may include recommendations on CFV reduction implementations as well as checklists for avoiding negative impacts on gender and other vulnerable groups. An additional element of that toolkit is a characterisation of skillsets for industry, policy makers and employers to implement and design social innovation based policy interventions.

  • Living Lab report

    D5.2 will report the experiences in the different labs. This will include specific chapters per lab, where living lab activities and there outcome will be reported. This report will have a more operational perspective, whereas the assessment of the interventions will take place within the WP6 work.

  • Workshop to finalise and cross-check the assessment criteria and local goals

    A workshop will be held in which representatives from EMPOWER's living-lab cities will discuss and refine the characteristics of the assessment which will be carried out in all EMPOWER cities, but also the characteristics of the city-specific assessment, including local conditions and goals which will affect the assessments' results. Basis of the workshops will be the criteria sets developed in task 6.3.

  • EMPOWER Website

    D7.1 is the EMPOWER public project website and a key mechanism for communication with the external enviroment. This site be a dynamic and attractive window to the EMPOWER project, including information about the project, current events, the publication of final version of Deliverables, etc. Also, this website will feature some more information about activities in the Living Labs, and will inform potential Take-up Cities about the EMPOWER project.

  • Workshop for take-up cities on implementation assistance

    As part of task 6.6, EMPOWER's take-up cities will be assisted in completing ex-ante assessments of the their incentive schemes they wish to implement. The main part of this will be a workshop in which attendees will be introduced to the assessment method.

  • Mobility Services infrastructure documentation

    The deliverable describes the architecture of the infrastructure, the basic functionality of its components as well as the mobile ICT services, and how these are integrated. The document serves as a driver for interaction between work-packages and includes a plan for initial validation.

  • Architecture of evidence database for EMPOWER toolkit

    Deliverable D1.2 will cover the following components: - description of how data is stored, processed and utilized - description of administrative structure for management of data resources
