C-Roads Greece organized its First Stakeholder Workshop with great success!
The First Stakeholders Workshop of the C-Roads Greece project was held virtually on the 14th of December 2020 within the framework of the 6th ITS Hellas Virtual Conference with great success. More than 280 attendees, mainly from Greece and EU member states, had the opportunity to be informed about the deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) in Greece, the pilot activities of the project at Egnatia Odos and Attikes Diadromes and also about the current status and future prospects in the C-ITS domain.
Within the framework of the workshop, a round table discussion titled “Expanding the C-ITS capabilities of Europe’s road network” was hosted, aiming to share experiences and views between high-level C-Roads platform representatives and C-Roads Greece partners with the workshop attendees. A video recording of the workshop is freely available online (7:00.26 – 8:51:50).
The Second Stakeholders Workshop of the C-Roads Greece project is planned to be held during December 2021, where further developments from the Greek pilot are expected to be announced.
About the Project
The C-Roads Platform, co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union, is a joint initiative of European Member States and road operators for testing and implementing Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) services in light of cross-border harmonisation and interoperability across Europe. The goal is to achieve the deployment of interoperable cross-border C-ITS services for road users. 18 European Member States are participating in the C-Roads Platform with national pilots, in order to test and validate locally C-ITS services based on the common communication profiles agreed at the C-Roads Platform level. Greece, under the coordination of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, participates in the C-Roads Platform with the C-Roads Greece project. The two pilot sites of the C-Roads Greece project are along Egnatia Odos Tollway and Αttika Tollway. More information about the C-Roads Platform can be found at: https://www.c-roads.eu/
