Welcome to the EU EIP ITS Forum 2018

Traffic Management in a changing world
Digitalization, Multimodality, Smart Infrastructures

Come and join in the Discussion!

14 & 15 November 2018
LEF Future Center -  Utrecht, The Netherlands

Traditional traffic management in transition

New technologies such as connected, cooperative and automated driving and floating car data will drastically change the world of traffic management. Traditional ITS will increasingly be complemented by C-ITS and other new technologies, allowing new travel services to emerge. And with larger cities and more complex, busier networks, road authorities need to collaborate with industry and knowledge partners. In other words, traditional traffic management and roles are changing.

Facing challenges together
Interested to share experiences, exchange knowledge and best practices among European colleagues? Eager to contribute to shaping the future of road traffic management? Then come and join the ITS Forum 2018 in Utrecht coming November. The 2-day event will focus on Road Traffic Management and its current challenges and will be organized in cooperation with the European Commission as well as the five European ITS corridor projects: Arc Atlantique, Crocodile, MedTIS, Next-ITS and Ursa Major Neo.

In Utrecht policy-makers and leading industry experts will share their ideas on strategies, policies and ways on how to apply trends and developments in the world of traffic management.
