The CEO of the European intelligent transport organisation ERTICO – ITS Europe is predicting 2023 to be a “positive year with many exciting collaboratoins and success for all our activities”.
In his New Year message, Joost Vantomme (pictured) promises the organisation will continue to facilitate safer, smarter and more efficient transport services for the benefit of all.
“2023 will continue to bring along some of the previous year’s priorities as we strengthen connections within the ITS community. One of which is urban mobility which will get even more traction this year. As a selected member of the European Commission’s Expert Group on Urban Mobility, I am pleased ERTICO is part of this journey, and I look forward to our leadership role in the Future of Mobility group.
“We will work intensively to deliver more on mobility data spaces. In addition, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) continues to be an important focus where we work hand-in-hand with the MaaS Alliance. We will also ensure a fruitful liaison with other European and international associations to continue engaging in discussions and streamline views on ITS where possible. Our team will also embark on a series of the sector and cross-sector dialogues within ERTICO.
“At the same time, we will organise more of our FOCUS ON Partnership events, focusing on strategic value chains in our eight sectors and their trends and challenges. Beyond this continuing work with our Partners, the network of National ITS organisations (ITS Nationals) is invaluable for me. This year, I look forward to taking an active role in stewardship, cooperation and synergising on key ITS topics.”
