Methodology for evaluation of project impacts in the field of transport

Methodology for evaluation of project impacts in the field of transport

Objective

An extensive amount of transport research projects have been conducted in the past EU Framework Programmes. Traditionally, the projects have been grouped under mode specific themes aiming to-wards commonly defined objectives for those themes. In Policy oriented transport research projects sustainable mobility has often been the key objective, in technology oriented projects the focus has been more on the European competitiveness. Quite seldom project objectives have included both of these issues. Neither has the value of the transport research projects or themes for the society at large from topical perspectives been considered. The METRONOME project will provide three contributions to the above dilemma. Firstly, it will identify the criteria to measure the effectiveness of European transport research from three different perspectives: Industrial Competitiveness, Sustainable Development and Improving Pub-lic policies. Secondly, the project will develop a methodology and produce a tool, based on the identified criteria, for the evaluation of Framework Project impacts in the field of transport. The main end user for the methodology and tool will be EC, but there is also a possibility to involve other transport system stake-holders. Thirdly, METRONOME project will perform the evaluation to a decent number of different projects selected through the methodological development. Based on the evaluations, the effectiveness of FP5 and FP6 projects regarding the identified criteria can be measured. The evaluation results and findings from FP5 and FP6 projects in Transport will be used to the defini-tion of new research policy objectives and intermediate performance targets for FP7.
