ITS Sweden - ITS Strasbourg
12th ITS European Congress, 19-22 June 2017, Strasbourg, France
The Congresses provide the ideal opportunity for all stakeholders to come together, discuss and make the necessary contacts to move initiatives forward and to develop their business by exhibiting and demonstrating state of the art ITS solutions. The Congresses also showcase the latest ITS achievements from the city and region hosting the Congress, and can help increase awareness of ITS in the Host region itself.
In 2017, the Congress will take place from 19 to 22 June 2017 at the Strasbourg Convention Centre. Under the theme “ITS Beyond Borders”, the Congress will focus on the people, intelligent mobility users, as every day hundreds of thousands of them are crossing the French-German border to live their daily lives.
Strasbourg can be considered one of the few European cities providing an environment where cross-border issues and challenges such as technology compatibility and interoperability or legislation evolution and application, can be experienced. The intersection of multiple transport and communication networks makes the city a wonderful living lab for mobility.
Strasbourg is also a pioneer in sustainable mobility. By improving walkability, building an extensive network of cycle tracks, introducing car sharing schemes and a new road code, the city gives a clear sign of its strategy for sharing the public space and delivering an excellent quality of life for its inhabitants.
The 12th European ITS Congress 2017 organised by ERTICO – ITS Europe in partnership with the European Commission and hosted by the City and Eurometropolis of Strasbourg.
