[fre] Avec l'émergence de problèmes globaux d'environnement dans les années 1980, de nouvelles pratiques visent à réconcilier l'activité économique et la préservation de la qualité environnementale. Les firmes jouent un rôle fondamental vis-à-vis d'une endogénéisation du changement technologique dans le cadre de stratégies « win-win ». Nous nous in...
Preprint
Analytical methods in engineering and economics have been proposing that investments in safety lead to improvements in performance. However, no research has proposed a management approach that studies the organizational elements that conceive safety management as a source of strategical performance to a company. In this study, we aim to shed light...
Conference Paper
The construction industry is claimed to be the most lethal economic sector. Despite efforts to include safety as a relevant indicator, managers are still trying to figure out which organizational buttons they need to push to unleash safety performance. To investigate this problem, we draw from performance measurement lens to develop a systematic li...

The formalization of environmental issues has gained prominence since the definition of sustainable development by the Brundtland's report. Environmental performance has then been introduced to qualify the “green” contribution of an organization to its surrounding environment. However, its multi-dimensional aspects can be problematic when designing...

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) presents a shift from existing ownership-based transports and towards access-based ones and it has been recently gaining ground in urban mobility. MaaS is still surrounded by uncertainties and, its development and applicability are mainly centered in developed countries. However, MaaS is modular, adaptable and applicabl...

Full-text available
Mobility‐as‐a‐Service (MaaS) offers tailored‐made, on‐demand mobility solutions to users by integrating on a single service subscription, public and private transport modes. However, the concept is still uncertain, and its current development and applicability is centered on developed countries. On the other hand, we advocate that MaaS is modular,...
Conference Paper
The concept of Responsible Innovation holds that any innovation should take into account the balance of economic, ethical, social and sustainable aspects throughout the entire project in a manner that shows care for the future being constructed. However, as this concept is recent, originates in the context of the European Union and addresses issues...
Article
This descriptive paper of qualitative approach aimed at understanding whether the Quintuple Helix Model (QHM) can positively foster advancements on urban mobility from AVs’ insertion in the society, as well as discuss the dynamic of the QHM in the Brazilian context. Synergy among agents proposed by the model is essential for minimizing the impacts...

Scenario planning methods tend to work at an aggregate level and to consider homogeneous populations, thus levelling the variable effects of future developments on different social groups. Decision-making based on such scenarios bears the risk of missing undesired impacts on specific groups of people, which may cause social tensions or require cost...
Article
Full-text available
In this article we propose a decision-aid tool for local authorities to plan and implement their transport policies. We set out sustainable-mobility scenarios that depend on the geographical contexts of different areas based on 50 mobility offers, including active modes, car-sharing, public transport, etc. To do so we appeal to a multi-criteria dec...
Conference Paper
Purpose By presenting a shift away from the prevailing ownership-based transport systems and towards access-based ones, the concept of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) has been recently gaining ground and becoming a concrete business model opportunity. MaaS goal is to offer tailored-made on-demand mobility solutions by integrating on a single service,...

Considering the AVs as an emerging innovation, as well as its adjacencies in terms of impacts, this paper aims to discuss critical aspects that influence the governance model for insertion of AVs in a national context. With this intent, is essential to consider multiple actors that are involved in this context. In this sense we adopt the Quadruple...
Conference Paper
Purpose – As long as the concept of Mobility-as-a-Service is still surrounded by ambiguities and uncertainties, this paper aimed to analyze MaaS as a PSS and as an Eco-innovation under the Business Ecosystem concept, as well as propose a schematic model for different mobility services. Theoretical framework – Product-Service System, Eco-innovation,...
Conference Paper
This paper seeks to map and discuss the innovation context of Brazil and France, using for this the Innovation Radar's framework. Fundamentally, it seeks to address the gap between the development of AVs, the differences between two national contexts, and the lack of specific knowledge about how to manage disruptive innovation in countries. The ado...

Chapter
By 2050, 70% of the world’s population will live in or around a city. Cities already generate 70% of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. The future of urbanisation will be smart, in which land use is optimised and the transport system is more efficient and environmentally friendly, providing affordable mobility services to ensure well-being in...
Chapter
In a smart city, urban and transport planning should be co-conducted harmoniously in order to create a new transit-supportive city. After defining our vision of smart mobility, we will present and analyse the links between the transport system, disruptive innovation, and the role of public policies in change management. In this chapter 7, we focus...

Admitting the undetermined character of future societies means, immediately, affirming the “space” of opportunities of possible futures to be constructed. Affronting uncertainty means admitting vulnerability in the sense of hopes that may not be sustained — dashed by other, incompatible futures coming into being. Futures, as opportunities, can be c...
