1     Introduction

As part of the activities to spread the knowledge and expertise of the NoE
HUMANIST, a specific training and education program will be developed for the next
generation of researchers associated to the network. In this report the profile of the
early-stage researchers (ESR) is analysed in order to identify those fields where
additional training and education is needed. The deliverable includes an updated and
extended version of the milestone ‘Analysis of the profile of the early stage
researchers of the NoE and identification of relevant topics of courses related to new
research priorities not covered by university education’ (Sommer, 2004a) in
combination with the results of a Task Force 5 survey on existing training programs
relevant for HUMANIST topics.


1.1 Definition of ‘Early Stage          Researchers’          and      framework           for     the
identification of training needs

The main objective of the TF5 Activity ‘Training programs for early-stage researchers
of the network’ is to expand and harmonise the knowledge of the new generation of
researchers by the organisation of events providing additional training in direct
relation with the research fields of HUMANIST. The aim is to support the research
career of the ESRs by a structured training scheme.


The Marie Curie Program defines an ESR as a person of at least post-graduate or
equivalent level who is actively doing research (see ‘First Draft on the mobility
requirements, rules and organization’, Mera, 2004). The Technical Annex of
HUMANIST specifies Ph.D. students or researchers who are within the first years of
their career as examples for ESRs. The actual level of experience of a researcher is
determined at the time of acceptance for a training program. This definition of
researchers in early stages of their career is independent of a person’s chronological
age. The status of an ESR does not change during the training program or when a
person gains his/her Ph.D. during this period.


In training programs like the Marie Curie program, the identity of a particular early-
stage researcher is usually not known at the time of submitting a proposal, because

HUMANIST                                             Deliverable 5.1: Identification of the training needs
                                                   for HUMANIST early stage researchers / version B2

the organizations will choose the researchers after their proposal is accepted. The
selection of candidates for a training program should be based on the aptitude and
scientific qualification of a candidate to carry out a specific project as well as the
foreseen benefit of the training program for the candidate’s research career.


1.2 Questionnaire survey

In order to identify the professional profile of the HUMANIST ESR group a
questionnaire survey was carried out among the members of the NoE. As
HUMANIST is an interdisciplinary network it was expected that the group of
associated ESRs has a heterogenous professional background with specialisations
in the relevant fields of engineering and psychology, like for example vehicle
engineering, traffic technology, human factors and performance or traffic psychology.


The partners of the network were asked to forward the questionnaire to researchers
corresponding to the ESR definition as described in the previous section. The key
features of the questionnaire to describe the aptitude and the scientific experience of
an ESR with regard to the human-centred design of driver assistance systems were:


            university education
            research experience (areas)
            publications (title of thesis, articles, papers at conferences etc.)
            participation in special training programs (summer schools etc.)
            participation in relevant projects
            knowledge and experience gained in the area of human-centred design of
            ITS during academic education and research activities (attended courses,
            seminars, participation in projects etc.)


The final version of the questionnaire for the collection of information about the ESRs
group profile is presented in Annex A of this document. The questionnaire was
created in an iterative process. The partners participating in TF5 Activity T-TP1 gave
feedback to two preliminary versions of the questionnaire drafted by the Institute of
Occupational Physiology at the University of Dortmund (IfADo). After revision of the
form, the final version was sent to the members of the NoE.

1.3 Respondents

38 ESRs associated to the HUMANIST NoE returned the questionnaires with their
data.1 Responses were received from the UK (4), Germany, (7), Czech Republic (1),
Denmark (1), Austria (1), Greece (12), Netherlands (2), Spain (6) and France (4).
The description of the HUMANIST participants and consortium in Appendix A of the
HUMANIST Contract Annex 1 (pp. 110 – 167) lists in total 27 doctoral students.
Hence, the respondents to the survey include nearly all doctoral students mentioned
in the HUMANIST contract, and additionally a smaller group of associated ESRs
working in related fields. The age of the subjects ranged from 23 to 48, with an
average of 28,6 years (Fig. 1).

2          Survey Results and Discussion

This section presents and discusses the results of the survey. Due to the low
frequency of post-docs in the ESR-group (only two; 5% of the whole group) this sub-
group of respondents is not analysed separately.


2.1 Background and research experience of the respondents

The large majority of the ESR group has a professional background either in
engineering (52,6%) or psychology (38,8%). Exceptions are backgrounds in
mathematics (2,6%), industrial management (2,6%) and human-computer-interaction
(2,6%).2 The ESR’s are approximately 3.5 years active in research, with a distribution
ranging from less than one year to 14 years (Fig. 2). The three respondents with
more than six years research experience are two post-graduates and one Ph.D.
student. The two post-docs both have approximately six years research experience.

Most repondents received their university degree in 2002 (26,3%; Fig. 3 next page).
Comparing the number of years active in research with the year the ESRs received
their university degree shows that most ESRs gained their active research

reported that they were already active in research before they finished their academic
education, e. g. as student assistants.

The titles of the documents listed in Tab. 2 show that the ESRs were already quite
productive at a quantitative level. However, most respondents have a publications’
list that is based exclusively on the expertise each ESR gained during his/her specific
academic education. The publications’ list of the psychologists includes mainly
papers and reports focusing on driver behaviour issues, while the publications’ list of
the engineers includes basically papers and reports about technological issues.
There seem to be hence only few ESRs who have already a sufficient
interdisciplinary background, as it would be helpful when working in human-centred
design. Thus, most respondents would benefit from interdisciplinary training courses
teaching the basic principles of other disciplines.
This conclusion is confirmed both by the feedback to a general and a more specific
question asking the ESRs for the knowledge and experience they gained so far in
fields relevant for the HUMANIST NoE. Tab. 3 lists the relevant courses, seminars,
research activities, practical periods, internships, summer schools and projects.

Once again there are only few indications of an interdisciplinary exchange between
the two main disciplines. Most interdisciplinary expertise has been probably gained in
common projects with participants from both disciplines. However, research projects
usually have specific research and development objectives. Usually such projects do
not provide structured education and training.
When examining the feedback of the whole group to a direct question about their
personal areas of specialisation there seems to be a good balance between the
different relevant areas. Similar shares of respondents indicate categories like e.g.
traffic engineering and traffic psychology. A peak of specialisations shows up in the
category ‘human factors and performance’, which is per se an interdisciplinary field
(Fig. 4).

When analysing the responses of the two different main clusters separately the
picture is, however, different (Fig. 5, next page). Very few psychologists have gained
experience in engineering fields, and no engineer reports experience in traffic,
applied or experimental psychology. In comparison to the psychologists, fewer
engineers report a specialisation in the interdisciplinary fields human-centred design,
human factors and performance or ergonomics. This observation is critical, because
the human-centred design of driver assistance systems requires at least a basic
knowledge about human facors and performance as well as cognition and
ergonomics. There is hence an urgent need to train fundamental knowledge about
these fields primarily to the group of engineers, but also to a significant share of the
psychologists. Both ESR clusters, the psychologists and engineers, need further
training about basic principles of the other dicipline to prepare them for the co-
operation with the other discipline.

2.2 Interest in a HUMANIST-related training program

This section of the questionnaire was dedicated to the general interest of the ESR
group in a special HUMANIST training program. The overall interest in a training
program is high (Fig. 6, next page; scale from 1 ‘not interesting’ to 7 ‘very
interesting’). The interest is almost equal in the psychologist and engineer clusters.

Fig. 6: Interest in a special training program related to HUMANIST topics



When asked which topics in the HUMANIST fields are of interest to them, most
respondents indicate the impact analysis of ITS, followed by assessment
methodologies for ITS effects, driver behaviour models and driver information needs
(Fig. 7).

Only minor shares of the respondents expressed interest in the costs and benefits of
ITS, cognitive modelling and simulation, training drivers to use ITS and using ITS to
train drivers. Other interests were mentioned by only two respondents.4


When comparing the results of the two clusters, the engineers show a clear
preference for the impact analysis of ITS, assessment methodologies for ITS effects
and costs and benefits of ITS (Fig. 8). The psychologists’ main interests are driver
behaviour models, driver information needs and methods to train drivers to use ITS.
The psychologists are also interested in cognitive modelling and simulation.

These results emphasize again that the interests of both groups are clearly focused
on topics related to the own discipline. Engineers prefer technological issues and
effects of the systems on the traffic network, i.e. topics corresponding to their
academic background. The main interest of the psychologists is the effect of ITS on
driver behaviour and is likewise clearly related to the professional background of this
cluster.

2.3 Preferences for the didactic format of the training program

The final question asked for the repondents’ preferences with regard to the didactic
format of a HUMANIST training program. Most respondents prefer workshops,
courses or seminars. Pratical training periods should also be considered (Fig. 9).
One respondent suggested in addition joint projects with other partners having similar
interests as further possibility.

3. Main findings of the analysis of the profile of the young
researchers


The group of ESRs associated to the HUMANIST network consists mainly of two
clusters. 92% of the respondents are either engineers or psychologists. The training
program should therefore focus on these groups. The gender distribution in the group
is well balanced (52.6% females). Feedback was received from nine European
countries. 38 ESRs responded, i. e. 11 responses more than doctoral students listed
in the HUMANIST contract. The respondents were at the time of the survey on
average 3.5 years active in research. The group’s interest in a special HUMANIST
training program is high. According to the majority of the respondents, the training
should be provided either in workshops, courses, seminars or via practical training
periods.


Most, but not all respondents finished their acadamic education with a thesis related
to HUMANIST topics. The personal publication lists as well as the reported main
specialisations and interests show that the engineers and psychologists concentrate
on those topics relevant for their personal academic background: engineers
concentrate on technological aspects or impacts of ITS on the traffic network, while
the psychologists focus on the effects of ITS on driver behaviour. A narrow focus on
the own discipline would be no significant problem as long as there is mutual
understanding between the professions working together in an interdiscliplinary field.
However, the majority of the ESRs in both clusters seems to have no fundamental
knowledge of the basic principles of the other discipline. This gap could cause
serious communication problems when working together on a common task. Hence,
one of the main findings of the analysis of the ESR-group’s profile is the need to
learn more about the other academic discipline.


As a consequence of their focus on the own discipline the engineers and
psychologists have different preferences with regard to the topics that should be
trained in the HUMANIST program. Most engineers prefer the topics impact analysis
of ITS, assessment methodologies for ITS effects and costs/benefits of ITS. The
psychologists main interests are the topics driver behaviour models, driver

3.1 Identification of training needs: Conclusions                  and priorities for the
development of a HUMANIST ESR training program

The following conclusions and decisions with regard to the training needs and the
definition of training courses for the ESRs are based on the analysis of the ESR
group’s profile presented in the first chapters of this deliverable. Preliminary
suggestions based on the survey were presented in a preceding TF5 milestone. The
suggestions have been discussed during the TF5 meeting in Ispra (December 09,
2004). The conclusions and decisions below are the result of these discussions. The
TF5 partners agreed to the conclusions and decisions outlined below (see meeting
minutes, Sommer, 2004b).


    •     The main training should be given in workshops and courses. Practical
          periods may be considered for later project stages. Lectures may introduce
          the main topics of the workshops.
    •     The initial training should not only train special topics like e.g. ‘Impact
          Analysis of ITS’, but also provide knowledge about basic principles of the
          two main disciplines engineering and psychology (e.g. ‘Traffic Psychology
          for Engineers’ and vice versa ‘Traffic Engineering for Psychologists’).
    •     As each ESR is an expert in his/her specific discipline the ‘tandem-learning’
          concept will be tested in at least one training activity. In this seminar the
          engineering-ESRs will introduce basic engineering principles to the
          psychology-ESRs, and the psychology-ESRs will introduce basic psychology
          principles to the engineering-ESRs. The test of the tandem-learning
          approach to train interdiciplinary skills is included as a milestone of TF5 in
          the 2nd Joint Program of Activities of the HUMANIST NoE. A description of
          the tandem-learning concept is available in Annex B.
    •     Whenever necessary, the special events for the young researchers will be
          evaluated with small-scale questionnaire surveys to collect feedback from
          the ESR in order to improve future events.
    •     The first actual events of the training programs for the young researchers
          will be in spring and summer 2005, when all the PhD students granted by
          the NoE have started the work for their doctoral thesis.

    •     First special lectures for ESRs are expected as milestone until month 15.
          The topic of these lectures will take into account the specific interests of the
          two main clusters of the group in order to support the career of the young
          researchers, and to raise their interest in the training program.
    •     The first ‘experimental’ lectures will be given in June 2005. The session will
          be part of a TF E workshop, and accordingly deal with methodologies to
          assess safety and usability of ITS. Assessment methodologies is one of the
          field of highest interest for the whole ESR group (see fig. 7).
    •     A group of ESR students will present their research during a special poster
          session during the TF C ‘Modelling Driver Behaviour in Automotive
          Environments’ workshop in May 2005. The event provides an opportunity for
          the young researchers to present their work to established experts in their
          research field. About 15 young researchers will participate in the poster
          session and elaborate their posters either as short or long papers in the
          proceedings of this event.
    •     The following events will be outlined in the 2nd Joint Program of Activities of
          the NoE. Each specific event foreseen for the training program will be
          included as milestone in the 2nd Program.

4. Results of survey on existing academic and commercial training
   programs related to the user centred design of ITS

In parallel to the analysis of the group profile of the early-stage researchers
associated to the HUMANIST NoE a survey on existing academic and commercial
training programs for ITS-related topics was carried out. Aim of the survey was to
gain an overview on existing programs in order to a) identify the most relevant
training areas in the field of human-centred design of ITS and b) to identify relevant
topics not yet covered by existing training programs. Information was collected by the
TF5 partners. Each partner gathered information about lectures, course, seminars
etc. offered in different countries. The responsibilities were divided as follows:
INRETS:         France, Belgium, Netherlands
CUT:            Germany, Austria, Switzerland
NTUA:           United Kingdom
ICCS:           Greece, Italy.
UTL/FMH:        Portugal, Finland.
FACTUM:         Sweden, Denmark
UPM:            Spain, Norway.
CERTH/HIT: European countries not mentioned above (e. g. Czech Republic)
IFADO:          Most relevant academic education and training programs outside Europe.
The results of this survey were exchanged with TF1. Information collected by the TF5
partners has been hence also included in the TF1 ‘Inventory of the Most Relevant
European Universities Courses in Relation With the NoE Topics’ (Simoes &
Carvalhais, 2004). The TF5 survey gathered both academic and commercial training
programs, while the TF1 inventory presents exclusively academic programs. The TF5
survey concentrates, furthermore, specifically on training programs closely related to
the user-centred design of ITS (cognitive ergonomics, transportation human factors,
design of ITS applications etc.). The results of the survey are shown in one table for
each country (beginning on next page). Where available, information about the title of
the program, the institute or department offering the program, the responsible contact
person, the didactic approach, the interval in which the program is offered, the target
group for the program, the language used in the program, the main objectives and
the syllabus / curriculum are provided. The programs directly related to ITS issues (i.
e. those programs having ITS as main topic) are highlighted in light grey and the
programs where HUMANIST partners are involved in orange. The results are
summarised and discussed in chapter 4.1.

                                                                  for HUMANIST early stage researchers / version B2


4.1 Summary of training programs survey: Conclusions with respect to the
         training needs of the HUMANIST ESR

In total, 71 relevant training programs were identified in Australia (1), Austria (4),
Czech Republic (6), Denmark (1), Finland (2), France (10), Germany (12), Greece
(5), Netherlands (4), Portugal (1), Spain (2), Sweden (7), United Kingdom (10) and
USA (8). The identified programs do not necessarily reflect all relevant programs
offered in a country. As mentioned before, the aim of the survey was to get an
overview about the current situation with respect to training of ITS-related topics. 27
programs are directly related to ITS issues. 10 programs are provided by HUMANIST
partners, of which two are dedicated specifically to ITS (7.3 Seeck - Gelau
‘Introduction to Driver Assistance Systems’; 11.2 Pardillo Mayora ‘Sistemas
avanzados de explotación de carreteras y seguridad vial’).5 The majority of training
programs offered by HUMANIST partners deals with more general human-centred
design issues (ergonomics, needs of user groups etc.).


The survey shows that there is some regional variation with respect to the availability
of ITS-related training programs. While at least three programs directly related to ITS
are offered in France, no comparable program was found in e.g. Norway or Portugal.
Even in those countries where special ITS training programs are offered it could be
difficult to participate, because only few of them are available at local institutes or
universities. Hence, a main goal of the HUMANIST training program has to be to
provide the ESRs first of all with a common knowledge base with respect to general
issues of the human-centred design of new road transport technologies.6 This part of
the HUMANIST training program should introduce the ESRs to ITS applications and
user-centred design so that they understand the role of the technologies and their
effects on the driver-vehicle-environment system (e.g. the syllabus of training
programs 1.1 or 7.3). Once this common knowledge base is established, the training
can move on to more specific issues (like system safety, human-machine-interfaces,
needs of specific driver groups etc., see e. g. the syllabus of training programs 11.2
or 13.1)

    Note that program 7.3 is offered on a commercial basis. In 2004 the program was not realised.

    Corresponding to the conclusion in section 3.1 to train fundamental interdisciplinary skills first.

Introduction to Tandem Learning


Tandem learning is a way of learning that has been developed for adult education,
mainly for language training. The learning environment avoids the traditional frontal
classroom setting. Training takes place via a co-operative discussion between
experts with two different backgrounds and the work on a common task. When
learning languages the situation would be as follows: Two persons, both with a
different native language, work together in order to learn the language of the tandem
learning partner. Each partner is expert in his/her own language. The partners work
together on a common topic or problem, read texts together, support and correct
each other, are at the same time both teacher and learner and change these roles
continuously. The co-operative situation is usually very stimulating and increases the
motivation of the learners. In addition to the active language training the tandem
partners gain teaching skills and learn role flexibility. The tandem partners have
autonomy with regard to their learning goals and the methodologies applied. The
partners themselves are responsible for the time dedicated to the language of each
partner. Although the timing is flexible, the tandem partners should take care to
balance the efforts in a fair way.
Tandem learning sessions are usually integrated into workshops of several days,
because they need the face-to-face contact. Tandem learning can be, nevertheless,
extended to a regular exchange via e.g. email. New concepts of tandem learning
making use of new media include the preparation of teaching material like a text or
presentation introducing a specific topic. The teaching material is mailed to the
tandem partner. The tandem partner studies the teaching material and sends in
return mails including comments, questions, remarks etc. After the discussion, the
other tandem partner prepares new teaching material about one of his/her topic and
the process starts vice versa. If the telecommunication infrastructure is available,
tandem sessions could be also carried out via the Internet, with shared applications
or documents and direct verbal communication with microphones and headphones.


As the group of HUMANIST PhD students includes both trained academic
psychologists and engineers it should be considered if the tandem learning approach
