|Abstract: ||Strategic Niche Management (SNM) is rooted in organisational innovation
diffusion theory and provides a structure to evaluate and manage the introduction
of new transport technologies. In brief, SNM involves:
• Formation of a ‘technological niche’.
• Identification and introduction of appropriate protection measures that
support the new technology.
• Analysing the technological regime of the ‘experiment’ (demonstration
project). -Promotion and examination (by actors/partners) of 'second order'
learning processes within the protected experimental space.
• Management of experiment to encourage innovation diffusion.
An existing transport case study is presented to demonstrate how Strategic
Niche Management could be used in the development of new and innovative
transport technologies. These were conducted as part of a research project for the
CEC DG XII Strategic Niche Management as a Tool for Transition to a
Sustainable Transport System.
This paper briefly introduces Strategic Niche Management and focuses on
the new research by Petros Ieromonachou that is seeking to use SNM to evaluate
and manage radical local transport policy package measures. The possibility of
producing an implementation guidance tool based on this concept is discussed.|
