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.
During the Congress, the City and Eurometropolis of Strasbourg and ERTICO – ITS Europe will host the second edition of the Mayors’ Summit. City mayors and leaders from Europe will gather again to explore opportunities, experiences and strategies related to present and future contributions of ITS supporting policies for modal shift for people and goods in cities.
The 12th ITS European Congress 2017 is organised by ERTICO – ITS Europe in partnership with the European Commission and hosted by the City and Eurometropolis of Strasbourg.
