Joint ITU/UNECE Inland Transport Committee (ITC) workshop on Intelligent Transport Systems in emerging markets – drivers for safe and sustainable growth

June 27, 2013 @ 6:00 am - 3:00 pm

You are kindly invited to join the ITU/UNECE workshop on “Intelligent transport systems in emerging markets – drivers for safe and sustainable growth” that will take place at ITU Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland on 27 June 2013.

The UNECE Inland Transport Committee (ITC) is jointly organising this one day workshop with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), in the framework of its “Road Map for promoting ITS – 20 global actions 2012 – 2020” and as the 2013 round-table after the ITS kick-off event on 28 February 2012, that many of you so greatly supported.

The forthcoming event will be focusing on ITS in emerging markets and its impact on road safety. So this event is another milestone in 2013, during the year of ICT’s and the decade of action for road safety.
Additionally, it would be great if we could build a bridge between the 9th ITS European congress in Dublin, 4 – 7 June 2013 and the ITS World Congress in Tokyo, 14 – 18 October 2013, such as following-up on Dublin, and forwarding our findings of the round-table to Tokyo. In that sense, the UNECE Inland Transport Committee and ITU will play their role as global platforms to advocate ITS.

Given the importance of the debate at the workshop your personal participation would be most appreciated. I believe that the event will offer a unique opportunity to meet government officials, private sector and academia representatives.

The programme and all Information on the workshop can be found here: http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/Workshops-and-Seminars/its-em/201306/Pages/default.aspx

Registration is open now, so fill in the online form and join us!

The meeting will be conducted in English.
