C-ITS City Pool: Smart cooperative mobility training for public authorities
30 Jun 2020 - 30 Jun 2020
Are you a public authority, road operator or traffic manager? Do you want to acquire new skills and practical knowledge to improve mobility in your city / region? Are you familiar with Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) and digitalisation? Are you curious about how other cities are managing to deploy a wide range of C-ITS services for smart mobility, and how these are helping them making road transport safer, greener and more efficient?
Register today to the C-ITS City Pool on 30 June from 14:00-16:00 CET and join other public authority representatives for an interactive online training on cooperative services for smart mobility.
Successful deployment of smart mobility in our cities requires a digital transformation and new skills that public authorities need to acquire, foster and retain. This online interactive training event will provide access to practical knowledge, latest innovation trends and future perspectives in smart mobility. Firstly, it will give an overview of the benefits of C-ITS adoption for urban mobility; and secondly share knowledge to build up skills needed to embrace these new technologies to their full potential.
Participation in the C-ITS City Pool virtual training session is free of charge. Participants in the training will be granted with a C-MobILE capacity building certificate.
About the C-ITS City Pool and C-MobILE
Since 2015 the C-ITS City Pool acts as a central meeting point between transport authorities engaged in and benefiting from C-ITS deployment and other cities / regions interested in how C-ITS can improve urban and regional mobility with the aim of raising awareness and supporting deployment. Since March 2018 the C-ITS City Pool has been an integral part of the C-MobILE Stakeholder Forum, involving traffic managers, road authorities and operators, industries, fleet operators as well as everyday road users (such as professional taxi, bus or truck drivers, but also vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians) with the aim of establishing functioning partnerships. With widespread implementation as the main goal, the C-ITS City Pool serves as a one-stop-shop for cities and road authorities to receive training, acquire knowledge, make connections to share real-life experiences and learn about requirements, best practices and business opportunities for on-road deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS).
The C-MobILE project is a consortium of 37 partners (public and private) and co-funded by the European Commission under the H2020 Programme.
ERTICO – ITS Europe will provide an overview of mobility challenges and how cooperative mobility services are increasingly contributing to a safer, greener, more efficient and more comfortable mobility for public authorities, citizens and businesses.
CERTH-HIT – will run an interactive training session, centred on the needs of public authorities, to make participants more familiar with C-ITS technologies and services and smart traffic management.
The City of Copenhagen will share their experience and lessons learnt from real life C-ITS deployment, including relevance for and cooperation with suburban areas and neighbouring cities.
A knowledge test and feedback survey will follow to measure how well the attendees have retained the information received and gather their opinion on the training as well as interest to get involved in future C-ITS City Pool and C-MobILE activities.
