Members of the five ITS Corridors, EUEIP Activity 5 – Evaluation and other interested parties attended a two-day workshop in Paris to review and consider the future for evaluating the benefits derived from implementation of ITS and digital services on the road network.
The workshop came at an opportune time as DG-MOVE and INEA require a greater level of justification for co-funding ITS projects on the network. Our community has been challenged to provide information on the achievements and benefits of our projects throughout their programme, rather than in the final project reports.
The workshop held a series of sessions ranging from the benefits of a harmonised approach, a review of the current KPI’s, how C-ITS services are being evaluated and how to evaluate the impact of ITS in the context of a long distance ITS corridor. A session also looked at how the monetarise the beneficial impacts.
The goals of the event to facilitate cross corridor cooperation, assist EUEIP Activity 5, embed the importance of evaluating corridors using a harmonised approach amongst and across all corridors were achieved.
