Start Date: 1.6.1997
End Date: 31.5.2000
Project SAMI is designed to meet the requirements of Task 1.6/33 in the list of Strategic Transport Research Tasks. Its overall goal, as specified in that Task, is:
- to define a comprehensive assessment methodology;
- to describe major findings and policy recommendations on CTP issues including policy implementation in CEEC/CIS;
- define and develop decision models (presented in a report and an interactive computer program) which can be used in relation to the
- interactions between policy instruments/measures and identified CTP targets;
- to prepare a short manual/guide for strategic policy assessment on CTP issues, addressing the policy and decision-makers.
Within the overall goal, the following specific, measurable objectives have been specified, each related to a work package, each directly measurable, and each contributing to one or more of the project deliverables:
- to identify candidate CTP targets and assess possible conflicts and synergies between them in order to define the structure of a target
- system including hierarchical levels, interactions, and quantifiable indicators;
- to define scenarios and sets of possible CTP instruments related to selected targets;
- to refine and test an optimisation methodology - previously developed on an urban level - on the European level;
- to define and develop a strategic assessment methodology - including necessary software - for system-wide (European) impacts of policy packages;
- to clarify the conditions for CTP implementation on the European level when considering also the implications in the CEEC/CIS.
