8 November 2021
A workshop to explore innovation and the innovative organization from the perspective of road and transport administrations. An event to discuss not only what has been done so far but also what the next steps on this topic are.
The PIARC 1.1 Technical Committee "Performance of Transport Administrations" in collaboration with the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA) is organizing the workshop "Innovation and Innovative Organization", which will take place in hybrid format, in-person in Seville (Spain) and online, on November 23, 2021.
The workshop, which will be attended by a large number of international panelists, will be divided into three main parts. The first block will explore the fundamentals of innovation, the organizational approach to innovation and the importance of innovation for the overall performance of a road and transport administration. The different sessions will approach the topic of innovation from different perspectives. During the second and third parts of the workshop, presenters will share practical examples of how different transportation agencies approach innovation within their organization, including an academic and private sector points of view.
The topic will be addressed from the local level, applied to the case of Spain, to a more international framework, solving some practical questions such as: how do you encouraged innovation among the staff? or how is innovation captured and rewarded?
With an approximate duration of 5 hours, the workshop will be held in English with simultaneous interpretation into Spanish.
