NewHoRRIzon-Mobalance Joint Event

On 19 November the IHS research group for Techno-Science and Societal Transformation (TSST) and the Austrian Institute for Technology (AIT) held a joint workshop at IHS.

As part of the EU funded NewHoRRIzon project Social Lab on mainstreaming Responsible Research and Innovation in EU research funding policy in Transportation project partners experimented with the one day consensus conference methodology developed by TSST. The workshop methodology aims at involving and engaging stakeholders in the early phases of research by offering input and then engaging stakeholders in a participatory decision making process on potential research avenues to pursue. The project at hand was AIT Mobalance, an FFG/BMVIT funded project on developing a sustainable mobility-budget concept on three levels (individual, municipal and national). The event was designed and moderated by Elisabeth Frankus and Robert Braun.
