ERTICO is pleased to announce that the Austrian Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology has joined its Partnership.
The Austrian Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology is responsible for the entire portfolio of mobility and its digital transformation in Austria, both from the research and innovation as well as the deployment perspective. Austrian authorities and industries together have been engaging strongly in shaping European ITS policy and leveraging seamless mobility and transport services across borders, modes and actors.
The ERTICO Partnership bridges the gaps between stakeholders across the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) community to help make mobility safer, more efficient and sustainable. Together, we lead the digital transformation of transport through the development of cutting-edge technologies, new services and innovative mobility solutions to move people and goods in smarter ways. Our Partners share the joint mission to actively promote sustainable collaborative relations with EU institutions and policymakers by connecting local and regional transport organisations with national authorities.
Joost Vantomme, CEO of ERTICO – ITS Europe shares his welcoming message, “We are honoured to welcome the Austrian Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology as our new member of the Partnership. Their expertise and knowledge in orchestrating the digital transformation of mobility in Austria is a tremendous asset. As a collaborative force, we will leverage our joint insights into intelligent transport systems. Together, we will navigate the complex landscape of innovation and lead the charge in crafting a more efficient, sustainable, and interconnected future for mobility across Europe.”
Collaboration at all levels proved decisive for Austria to become a forerunner in ITS. To further strengthen and multiply ties with European industries and stakeholders is why we are joining ERTICO. Europe is extremely good in this field and we have experienced ERTICO as a partner in helping ITS and digital innovations make the leap from the lab to the market. Together we will be ahead of the curve and able to make a positive contribution to the ongoing mobility transition.
“Network, engage, share, collaborate, push the envelope and innovate!” says Gerhard Menzel, Head of Intelligent Transport Systems & Digital Transformation, Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology.
Joining the ERTICO Partnership is an important way to connect the dots between different sectors across our complex ecosystem. The Partnership enables close collaboration between stakeholders by coordinating the planning and deployment of intelligent transport systems and smart mobility solutions in Europe and beyond.
