European ITS Platform


The EU ITS Platform is the place where Member States, road authorities, road operators and partners from the private and public sectors cooperate to encourage, accelerate and optimize ITS deployments in Europe in a harmonized way.

This is essential to ensure that European travellers enjoy ITS services seamlessly across the different European Member States.


The EU ITS platform facilitates the establishment of a common state of the art and promotes the development of technical specifications. It also allows the dissemination of good practices to enable a harmonized European transport network and interoperable mobility services.

 

European and National Authorities encourage the development of an integrated transport system and a better use of the existing infrastructures, increasing this way the efficiency of the TEN-T Road Network and relevant traffic Corridors. ITS as well as uniform technical standards are the key tools of this process.


Interoperability must be discussed among Member States and Stakeholders, designed, tested and finally deployed on the basis of the evolution of technology, standards, specifications and open interfaces. The European ITS platform is active to expedite and facilitate this kind of process at pan-European level.

 

The "EU ITS Platform" brings together the key European players who cooperate to establish an open "forum" which provides a joint contribution to future strategy and contributes to the policy recommendations for the improved development and deployment of ITS services along European Road Corridors.


Authorities and operators are working together in the European ITS platform towards a smarter and more efficient mobility, a goal which will be achieved through large-scale technology deployments.

 

The ITS Forum is a bi-annual gathering. Further information on the EU ITS Platform is available here.
