Facing challenges together
The ITS Forum 2018 is organized by the European ITS Platform (EU EIP) jointly with European ITS corridor projects: Arc Atlantique, Crocodile, MedTIS, Next-ITS and Ursa Major. Within the European ITS Platform, European road operators and authorities have teamed up with external stakeholders to foster European harmonisation of ITS and deliver prominent results. The ITS Forum is a bi-annual gathering to discuss these results with each other and other stakeholders.
Traditional traffic management in transition
The theme of this year’s ITS Forum is ‘Traffic Management in a Changing World’ which will be reflected in the programme. Focus will be on road traffic management and its current challenges. The programme offers sessions on topics ranging from digitalisation of transport, public private cooperation and cross-border testing to multimodal transport and connected and automated driving.
