Outline Introduction to Systematic Transfer Policy Transfer between Cities Context Conditions of Cities Introduction to TIDE transferability methodology Transferability methodology step-by-step
Introduce the concept of transferability Policy transfer describes the process of transferring knowledge and good practices between two political units (cities). Attention is allocated to the behaviour, interplay and role of institutions and stakeholders during the transfer process of a certain policy. Policy transfer does not only include simply copying successful solutions. Policy transfer allows for the possibility of modification throughout the transfer process.
Introduce the concept of transferability Transferability A process of verifying the chances of a successful implementation of a measure from a pioneer city to the adopting city at an operational or implementation level Pioneer city A city where an innovative measure is successfully implemented Adopter city A city which wish to implement an innovative measure that is successfully implemented in a pioneer city
Introduce the concept of transferability There are no cities with exactly the same context conditions. Cities can be different from each other in many aspects of transport and traffic conditions (demand, supply, infrastructure, traffic control and management, etc.), geographical environmental, demographic, socio-economic and cultural backgrounds as well as institutional and legal frameworks. It is therefore important to identify those context conditions which are key to the measure‘s success and which must also be addressed in any new location. It is also valuable to identify those context conditions which have created barriers to success so that they can either be overcome or transferability avoided where such factors exist. Context Conditions
Advantages of systematic transfer -Systematic approach to innovation -Reduces the risk of bad decision making -Feasibility check at an early stage -Clearer definition of measures – What exactly is it that we want to transfer? -Comparability between different Innovative Measures -Don‘t have to reinvent the wheel -Cost savings -Learn from the mistakes of others -The process itself leads to stakeholder and expert involvement
Introduce the TIDE Transferability Methodology TIDE will provide a scientifically sound methodology to analyse and enhance the transferability of an Innovative Measures in Urban Mobility from one city to another. The methodology is designed to maximise the usability for practitioners in European cities. A ‘Handbook for transferability analysis in urban transport and mobility’ will be produced by the cities involved in TIDE and also provide guidance to a wider range of cities interested to transfer existing solutions to their own context. It is a systematic qualitative methodology where stakeholders and experts cooperatively come to conclusions on introducing innovation into a city. Transferability methodology for successful take-up
Session objectives and methodology mapping Determine the impacts and criteria for success of the measures Identify components and their sub- components of each measure and determine their relative importance in current context Identify the relevance of the sub-components for transferability (support or constrain) and assess the measure’s transferability potential Develop recommendations on transferability of measures Step 1: Mission Statement (Definition) Step 2: Clarification of impacts Step 3: Up-Scaling/Down-scaling need Step 4: Components and sub- components Step 5: Identification of level of importance Step 6: Sub-components in the context of adopter city Step 7: Conclusion ObjectivesMethodology Steps
Step2 : Clarification of the impacts of the measure Suggested prompting questions for this discussion: What are the most useful/important impacts/success criteria? Is there an order of priority for these impacts/success criteria? Impacts/Success, e.g. safety, quality of life or city centre attractiveness.
Step2 : Clarification of the impacts of the measure
Step 4: Identification of the main components and sub- components Brainstorm components and sub-components Use PESTE categories i.e. political, economic… Suggested prompting questions for this discussion: What are the significant components of the selected measure in relation to transferability? Can we list the significant sub-components of each component in relation to transferability? How important are these characteristics in the context of the city where it is successfully implemented?
Step 6 & 7: Assessment of characteristics Suggested prompting questions for this discussion: Exercise to determine the ease or difficulty experienced (regarding the identified characteristics) when implementing the measure Sub-components are ranked: strong support ‘+2’, strong constraint ‘-2’ Sub-components are differentiated into success factors and barriers – supporting or constraining the implementation of the measure? What are the likely levels of support or constraint of these characteristics? Has the measure considered potential for transferability (considering importance and support/constraint levels of each characteristic)?
