Following an invitation of the Commission, industry representatives and public authorities have today agreed on a shared vision for the coordinated deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) in Europe. This is an important step towards connected cars as C-ITS enable vehicles to communicate with each other and with the infrastructure. This can notably improve road safety and reduce congestion.

Dear Colleagues,

ERTICO office is currently looking at different opportunities on EC H2020 funding calls where we would like to work more actively with public authorities / cities on promoting C-ITS deployment. An ERTICO coordinated proposal on developing an ‘’ITS Knowledge – Sharing – Deployment community and marketplace’’ is currently in development.

EC H2020 funding call – MG 6.3 support action – Deadline: 26 January 2016

The aim of this project is to develop a C-ITS Knowledge – Sharing – Deployment community and marketplace with education – training tools and guidance measures as an instrument to support authorities (at Inter and Intra levels) in the implementation of ITS. In addition, this project will support authorities plans, specify and procure ITS systems, make informed decisions, choose the right technology in order to efficiently deploy ITS.

We would like to welcome you to join this consortium as an associated partner. If you are interested, please fill in the Letter of Support document enclosed in the email and send to Mrs Lina Konstantinopoulou l.konstantinopoulou@mail.ertico.com in scanned version by 11th January. She also remains at your disposal should you require any further information regarding the proposal objectives, work plan and benefits.
Thank you in advance for your reply and looking forward to developing and exchanging ideas with you to further promote C-ITS deployment!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Christmas Greetings

Transport generates 23% of global CO2 emissions from fuel combustion. This share needs to fall to stay within the 2 degree Celsius scenario for climate mitigation. The International Transport Forum launched six concise analyses on critical issues for decarbonising transport for the COP21 climate change conference taking place in Paris.


On the initiative of France, the formal opening of the 22nd World ITS Congress was preceded by a ministers’ roundtable. The event focused on “Prospects for ITS development for the environment and climate protection”.  The Report can be downloaded here:


The Commission is launching the second call for proposals of the Connecting Europe Facility, with more than €7.6 billion of investment to finance transport projects. €6.5 billion are earmarked for countries with Cohesion Fund eligibility.
