Earlier this year the Ministry of Information & Communication Technologies from Tatarstan, Russia, joined the ERTICO Partnership together with Inspectra, a private ITS company. The reason was to learn from the ERTICO Partnership how different ITS solutions could be implemented as effectively as possible.

Together with Tatarstan stakeholders from the ITS Community we have identified three topics, which are of highest priority in Tatarstan:

· eCall / ERA GLONASS implementation

· C-ITS – V2X communication and the services this would provide;

· Building a mutual educational ITS platform between Russia and Europe.

To facilitate the set-up of potential collaboration in Tatarstan, ERTICO – ITS Europe and the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies and Inspectra would like to invite the ERTICO Partners to actively participate in a workshop to be held in the capital Kazan 15-16th October 2014.

However before we finalise the logistics around this workshop we would like you to express your interest in participating. In addition Partners interested in giving a presentation on topics related to the three area defined above are kindly asked to do so using the link below.

Logistical information will be provided once the registration form is submitted to ERTICO but please find attached a draft agenda.
