The European C-ITS Platform has made important progress towards a common C-ITS deployment strategy, and now it’s time to speed-up the cooperation between cities, road operators, businesses and professional users who need to work actively together if massive C-ITS deployment is to start in 2019.
Three leading European C-ITS initiatives supported by the European Commission (urban C-ITS pilots in “C-The Difference” and “C-MobILE” projects, together with the C-Roads Platform for national and regional deployment), are coming together to invite policy- and decision-makers and professional users to meet at the Urban C-ITS Roundtable on 6 June 2018 in Bordeaux to strengthen commitment and to gain momentum toward large scale deployment in Europe.
The event is free and open on invitation to all C-ITS stakeholders.
The event has three main objectives:
1. Ease the integration of urban nodes into pan-European C-ITS corridors, and promote expansion to all cities and regions;
2. Share lessons learnt by frontrunner cities and road operators, and transfer knowledge of C-ITS’ contribution to policy goals and to improved performance of road transport and urban mobility;
3. Foster the scaling up and widespread replication of successful C-ITS service implementations in European cities, and create a framework for demand and supply cooperation towards effective deployment and sustainable operation of C-ITS services.
