ITS for Road has been applied by EU Member States with great success since decades as a necessary mean to alleviate problems caused by an increasing demand for road transport while using the existing infrastructures. Ensuring continuity of high quality ITS services across Europe requires harmonisation of existing and future ITS services.
The EU ITS Platform (EU EIP) is a forum where partners from the private and public sectors of almost all EU Member States will cooperate in order to foster current and future ITS deployments in Europe in a harmonised way.
The EU EIP will also provide valid contribution for the future strategy, roll-out of services and policy recommendations on ITS. By monitoring, evaluating and disseminating results from the ITS Road Corridor projects (works within the CEF MAP ITS Call 2014), the EU ITS Platform can be considered as the technical European ITS "Knowledge Management Centre".
