Using strategic niche management to evaluate and implement urban transport policy instruments P. Ieromonachou, S. Potter & M. P. Enoch Centre for Technology Strategy The Open University, United Kzngdom. Abstract Strategic Niche Management (SNM) is rooted in organisational innovation diffusion theory and provides a structure to evaluate and manage the introduction of new transport technologies. In brief, SNM involves: Formation of a 'technological niche'. Identification and introduction of appropriate protection measures that support the new technology. Analysing the technological regime of the 'experiment' (demonstration project). -Promotion and examination (by actors/partners) of 'second order' learning processes within the protected experimental space. Management of experiment to encourage innovation dBbsion. An existing transport case study is presented to demonstrate how Strategic Niche Management could be used in the development of new and innovative transport technologies. These were
