The Methodological guidelines for selection of the good and best practices have been elaborated by the Interregional Team of Regional Experts (ITRE) Panel to support the interregional learning process and to assess the transferability of a good practice to another partner.
The Methodological guidelines shall be interpreted as an internal and flexible support tool for the partnership, with the purpose to identify accumulated practice within the three identified thematic areas of sustainable urban mobility: Transport policies, Intelligent Transport Systems for urban area, Low emission and green transport . The guidelines clarify understanding of good practice and best practice. Good practice (GP) stands for the approaches, routines, methods and policies developed and tested within the partner area or through the know-how obtained by the project partner in some past thematic activities. Best practice (BP) stands for the subset of the GPs that demonstrate the highest potential to improve the sustainable urban mobility policy making dimension of a specific project partner. A good practice can be best for no-one, one, or more project partners. Therefore, “best” is not an absolute attribute of the practice, but it is the evaluation of its contribution to the specific needs of each project partner, assessed through four pre-identified criteria (sustainability, transferability, effectiveness, innovation). The entire process of selection of the practices involves ITRE Panel, Project Partners (PPs), and Local Stakeholder Groups (LSGs) of TRAM project. All these bodies have a specific knowledge which is worth to be included in the identification of a best practice process.
