TTS Italia, in collaboration with the Marche Region and the European project RITS-Net, and the patronage of the PON Networks and Mobility, brought together in a two-day event in Rome, interlocutors who have chosen or will choose in coming months how to invest the 44 billion Euro of EU funds. The aim of the conference “ITS within the 2014-2020 programme” was to focus on the need to invest on mobility and technological upgrade to make the leap to smart mobility.

“The European Structural Funds 2014-2020 will also impact on the mobility of Italians. This is a unique opportunity that Italy must use to improve the conditions of movement of passengers and goods, accelerating technological leap towards smart mobility of so much talked about, and that the public have been waiting for a long time.” –said Rossella Panero, President of TTS Italia- “Italy approved the National ITS Action Plan but instruments and tools for a real implementation have not been defined so far as requested by the European Commission. The concrete implementation of the Plan would represent a great opportunity of both spending review and growth for the whole sector of transport.”

The appeal of TTS Italia has been approved and supported by all the participants and speakers of the conference: Ministry for Transport, Ministry for Economic Development, Municipalities of Bologna, Turin, Rome, Rimini, Florence, Messina, Venice, Bari, Regions of Marche, Emilia-Romagna, Sardinia, Campania, Piemonte, Liguria, Puglia.
