Workshop on Innovation and the Innovative Organization - PIARC International Workshop - 23 Nov 2021

The PIARC 1.1 Technical Committee "Performance of Transport Administrations" in collaboration with the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA) presents the workshop "Innovation and Innovative Organization", which took place in hybrid format, in-person in Seville (Spain) and online, on November 23, 2021.

The workshop, which was attended by a large number of international panelists, is divided into three main parts. The first block explores 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 approached the topic of innovation from different perspectives. During the second and third parts of the workshop, presenters share practical examples of how different transportation agencies approach innovation within their organization, including an academic and private sector points of view.

The topic is 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?
