Reply to TANGENT's Cooperative Decision-Making in Transport Network Management Survey

Are you involved in decision-making processes with stakeholders in the field of transport network management?

When multiple services, systems and stakeholders operate in the transport network, it is often difficult to agree upon the network parametrisation that will lead to its optimal functioning. For instance, what is more important when deciding the appropriate toll price of a congestion pricing scheme: minimising congestion within the charging zone or ensuring that traffic conditions outside the area stay reasonable?

TANGENT aims to assist in building consensus-based decisions in network traffic management by creating a state-of-the-art consensus-reaching mechanism. This novel mechanism will be capable to estimate the consensual opinion by taking into account both stakeholders’ preferences as well as the dynamics between them, as those are expressed by their communication and cooperation patterns.

To do so, TANGENT has created a questionnaire to capture the communication and cooperation patterns between stakeholders involved in the decision-making process of management of the transport network, as well as their preferences about different network objectives.

TANGENT is looking for survey respondents!
