Within the context of the study: “New ways of financing transport infrastructure projects in Europe”; prepared by TIS and by INOVA+ for the European Parliament, Scientific and Technological Assessment Option (STOA), the workshop aims at: Giving the most important stakeholders an opportunity to provide input to the analysis being performed for the European Parliament (which adds to the interviews) Providing an opportunity for Members of the European Parliament to directly discuss the matters at stake with the most important stakeholders; and Engaging stakeholders on the discussion of preliminary project results and to collect insights regarding the recommendations to be proposed.
Given these objectives the workshop is structured in three parts. The first part will give a set of three key actors – the project leader, a representative of the European Commission and a representative of EGTC/COTER – the opportunity to make a communication on the topic. This will provide the attendees information on the topics and issues at stake, facilitating their participation in the debate.
The second part will be an informed debate, with stakeholders being invited to provide their input to the discussion by sharing their own concrete experiences. The third part will be an enlarged debate in which the various speakers will be available to answer questions or react to comments put forward by the attendees.
