Novadays in the XIII ITS Congress

Novadays has participated in the XIII Congress of Intelligent Transport Systems or ITS, held in San Sebastian (Spain) last June.

The presentation made by Novadays was about the most recent developments in public transport systems and, in particular, about the Personal Rapid Transit - PRT as a system capable to solve complex mobility problems which are difficult to address by other traditional systems.

Novadays is committed to the development and implementation of these new systems in different countries. Our initiatives include the study of the PRTs as an alternative for public transportation, the design of models of public-private partnerships, PPP, that allow construction and management of PRTs, advising both public administrations and private companies to help promoting them, and the launching of collaborative R & D projects (financed both at national and European levels).

For more information on PRTs and/or Novadays activities on PRT, please contact us.

The mobility management in major activity centers —origin and destination of most of our trips— as technology parks, industrial estates, shopping and entertainment centers, university campuses, schools, hospitals, etc., is a new challenge for managers of these centers.

The changing needs of the public sector

First, in order to get a more efficient and effective public sector, public managers should evaluate the policies and programs implemented or under implementation and involving future spending commitments.

The evaluation must be present in the reformulation of public action, because only through objective analysis public managers may make decisions based on knowledge, certainty, and not only on personal intuition or mere opinion.

Secondly, it will be necessary to seek collective reflection, seeking best practices and involve co-producing companies or service providers of the Administration, experts, etc.

Third, you must plan and act, relying on the strategic direction. Managing in cooperation, co-produce with the private sector and with other government, setting achievements, aligning the organization with a strategy and leading.

The moratorium on subsidies forces companies in the sector of renewable energy to try their luck in America, Africa and Asia

Because of the moratorium on subsidies in Spain, companies engaged in renewable energy have had to export their services to developed or developing countries that have chosen to follow the path set by Spain years ago in this area.

This internationalization has been a huge success; just look at how Spanish companies have won 40% of the power competed in South Africa, after competing with more than 400 companies from all over the world.

The advantage of the Spanish firms agains those in other countries, is the experience accumulated over the past years, particularly in wind and photovoltaic energy.

Assessment as a tool for public administrations to improve the model

Since the beginning of the Crisis, the Central Government of the autonomous communities have faced the need to respond to growing social demands with shrinking public budget. This has required a strict fiscal discipline and management capacity that would optimize the use of resources.

To that management capacity is essential that public authorities evaluate their actions, programs and projects to seek improvements in management and be more efficient, as well as face a more profound and far-reaching reflection on how to do things, refining the model through the analysis of the institutional organization and effective coordination of agents.

The article was published in February 2012 in the journal “Negocio”.
