TRANSrisk Case Studies Workshop took place on October 4th and 5th, 2016, at University of Sussex in Brighton, United Kingdom.
During the first day of the workshop, participants had the opportunity to get informed about the preliminary case studies outputs in several countries, namely Austria, Netherlands, Spain, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, Kenya, China, India, Indonesia, Chile, UK, Canada and Greece.
All the results presented were discussed and validated by the TRANSrisk Scientific Advisory Board Members.
The aim of the second day was the peer support of case studies & the planning of next steps. Small discussion groups discussed among others the development of pathways in case studies and quantitative and qualitative approaches. The workshop continued with comparisons across country case studies and discussion regarding the submission of the respective report.
TRANSrisk's scientific coordinator Jenny Lieu welcomed the workshop participants.
