The overall objective of the LeMO dissemination strategy is to stimulate ongoing interest from all stakeholders and interested parties and engage them in a dialogue throughout the course of the project. The success of LeMO will require active involvement of industrial parties, government, policy makers and standards organizations in order to ensure a good understanding and sense of ownership of LeMO’s big data recommendations and research & policy roadmap. In this report, we present LeMO’s strategy to build a LeMO community that will contribute to maximum exploitation of the results of the project in and for the European transport sector. The strategy is supported by a methodology to map the taxonomy of stakeholders in the LeMO community that enables to assess the strengths & weaknesses of creating shared value through the interactions of stakeholders in the LeMO community.
The LeMO community is created around four smaller communities:
- Members of the Advisory & Reference Group (ARG)
- Case studies
- Clustering with other projects
- The network of each of the partners
The following conclusions are made with respect of creating shared value through the interactions of stakeholders in the LeMO community:
- There are ample opportunities of creating shared value through the LeMO community, especially in Western and Northern Europe.
- Members in the ARG are representing in almost equal numbers both public and private organisations. In addition, organisations cooperating with LeMO in the case studies are mostly information- or data service providers, and are therefore having a role as data facilitators. The expectation is that during the research for these case studies more stakeholders with relevance to LeMO will be identified.
