ERTICO – ITS Europe and the Lisboa Câmara Municipal will host the 15th ITS European Congress in Lisbon, from 22 May to 24 May 2023 under the theme ITS: The Game Changer.
With this theme, the event will showcase the latest technologies adopted by the Lisbon Region together with all the available ITS services and solutions in Europe.
As mentioned by the event’s organisers:
‘The sheer speed and scope of ITS, propelled by technological developments and social and environmental needs, are unprecedented. ITS has already made transportation much more efficient, demand-responsive and safe. And more is to come. The innovative potential of ITS is too vast to foretell our mobile future. We only know that ITS, The Game Changer, will keep changing the game – and us.’
The event will revolve around 5 main topics:
- Cooperative, connected and automated mobility
- New mobility services
- Freight & Logistics
- Digitalisation and the data value chain
- Future Traffic Management
While the Call for Contributions is currently close – the programme is already shaping up, promising to be fantastic! In particular, a stand out seems to be the Smart Urban Mobility Summit for Cities and Regions, which will take place on Monday, May 22, 2023, as part of the ITS European Congress.
During this summit, The European Commission will share the significance of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) agenda and how the EC is funding such initiatives in cities through innovation projects – participating regions and cities the likes of POLIS member Helmond will be establishing connections and partnerships within the ITS ecosystem.
