The EU-funded Horizon 2020 project Levitate (Societal Level Impacts of Connected and Automated Vehicles) organised with great success a Webinar under the theme “Building a dialogue with the LEVITATE cities” which was held online, on 7 April 2022. The participants had the opportunity to learn about the principles of backcasting, how a dialogue with city authorities led to valuable qualitative inputs for the research, and how the final results of the impact assessment relate to the backcasting approach.
