FEMA will organise its 3rd European Motorcyclists’ Forum in Brussels on 5 and 6 March 2014.

This year’s Forum will focus on ITS in the context of Horizon 2020 initiative. Powered Two Wheeler (PTW) users are market consumers using new technology to improve their riding experience or to increase their safety. But, as Vulnerable Road Users, they are also impacted by ITS deployment. The specificities of this transport mode need to be carefully understood and integrated into ITS deployment activities to guarantee that PTW use is rightly integrated into tomorrow’s transport system. 

The Forum – organized under the umbrella of the RIDERSCAN project – will discuss the safety challenges faced by powered two wheelers (PTWs) in an ever more connected transport system and exchange over:

EU transport/mobility challenges, safety strategies and the role of ITS – EU policy orientations and motorcycling integration;Motorcycling and ITS challenges, addressing research and deployment issues; practical considerations related to the use of PTWs in Europe;Priorities and challenges faced by the motorcycling sector both at EU and national level;Recommendations for optimal integration of PTWs into ITS-driven policies.

The event, kindly hosted by MEP Bernd Lange, will open in the European Parliament premises on March 5th 2014 (from 3 to 6pm). Discussions will continue on March 6th, all day, at the THON Hotel Brussels City Center
