South Australian Cellulose Fibre Roadmap
Objective: To explore opportunities to meet the key challenge among fibre producers in the Green Triangle region of South Australia: lack of communication and cooperation among local industry players.
Results: A shared view regarding the need to develop value-added production in the SA forest industry.
Impact: A rise in the level of awareness among regional operators, and major media attention:
- A shared belief among regional players that the historical trajectory of the forest industry could and should be changed.
- The Government of South Australia set up a fund for the renewal of the industry.

SECUR-ED - securing urban transportation – A European demo
Objective: The aim of the SECUR-ED project was to improve urban transport security.
Results: VTT created a systematic approach for identifying weak signals, which could indicate a scenario leading to a damaging event in mass transport environment. The results can be utilized when developing an early warning system for mass transport.
Impact: Mass transport operators can use the outcomes directly. The results can also be exploited in many other security-related applications.
Funding: EU FP7
Transport sector policy packages for climate change mitigation
Objective: To assess the possible, probable and desirable visions of the future that greenhouse gas targets set for the year 2050 call for, and alsoto determine what kind of policy measures and policy packages are needed to meet the targets.
Results: A new pluralistic backcasting method for creating visions based on the views of many disparate parties, as well as policy packages for climate change mitigation and assessment of the potential of policy packages in achieving the futures set by two visions (Urban beat and Cornucopia).
Impact: The results support strategic planning and decision making of transport sector stakeholders.
