KEY FINDINGS within NEW EU STUDIES ON MEGA PROJECT DECISION MAKING
- The previous study mentioned and considered a number of assessment approaches e.g. OMEGA study, TIPMAC, IASON. Nevertheless, the comment was made that it would be useful and important to consider other approaches, in particular NETLIPSE.
