Connected and Automated Driving Conference
The European Commission, with the support of the EC-funded projects CARTRE and SCOUT, is pleased to announce its First European Conference on ‘Connected and Automated Driving’.
Transforming challenges into opportunities
The high-level conference will be held in Brussels on 3 and 4 April 2017. Major road transport stakeholders – Automotive and Telecom industry, Users, Road Operators, Public Transport operators, Regulators, Research Centres, Universities and representatives of both EC and Member States– are invited to attend.
The event will be a unique opportunity for all participants to network and to discuss on how to boost the development and deployment of connected and automated driving technologies from a fourfold perspective: transport policy issues; technological challenges; legal and regulatory frame, and digital transformation.
For two days, EU leaders, CEOs and representatives from major road transport stakeholders will discuss interactively around the topic of connected and automated driving on:
- The role of R&I and policy making to accelerate roll out in Europe;
- The overview of the Member States’ programmes;
- The role of connectivity between vehicles, the road infrastructure and other road users to enhance the performance;
- The progress of the C-ITS deployment and how it supports automated driving throughout Europe’s main corridors;
- The latest findings of European-funded projects;
- The importance of international cooperation;
These plenary topics will be complemented by nine thematic breakout sessions. Additionally, an exhibition area will be organised and open to funded projects.
On the 5 and 6 April 2016, a series of additional thematic workshops will be organised on invitation only.
Registration to the conference is free and will open in the end of January 2017.
