Project overview

Governance of transformative innovation in Central European cities: the AV case

Technological innovations are transforming cities with a huge potential for improving people’s lives. But they need to be deployed responsibly. The GINEVRA project helps cities to effectively govern transformative innovations, such as autonomous vehicles. The partners jointly develop governance guidelines and new citizen engagement tools and test them in specific pilot actions. They also design a transnational strategy for responsibly governing the introduction of transformative innovations.

Roadmap

1

Challenge:

Innovations

Transformative innovations can be scary because they bring radical change to our lifestyle.

2

Specific Problem:

Explained

Transformative Innovations need to be explained to be understood and accepted.

3

Idea:

Transformative innovations are better understood when discussed in an open, clear and transparent dialogue and also better understood when experienced.

4

Solution:

Co-create and co-develop participative processes to jointly investigate specific innovations such as Autonomous Vehicles (AV) and deploy prototypes to understand reactions and feed it back into the process of building understanding and acceptance.

5

How it works:

1. Raise awareness and inform on the state-of-the-art concerning the specific innovation that serves as case studies. 2. Co-design and co-develop a participative methodology to engage with stakeholders on the possible implementation of the specific innovation (this includes demonstrations) 3. From a particular to a more general level from the case studies we translate results into a methodology aimed at uptaking solutions in policies concerning Transformative Innovations.

6

Proof/credibility:

1. Six Living Labs 2. Three prototypes of public mobility with AV 3. Tool for AV readiness 4. Methodological guidelines for Transformative Innovations Governance

7

Vision:

Building acceptance around Transformative Innovations.
