Newsletter – Issue Nº 2 2023


Dear Reader, 

In this special 75th anniversary year for the IRF, events and activities are multiplying. With this new issue of our newsletter, we provide you with a quick update on what we have been up to and also bringing to your attention some of the key appointments not to be missed. 

As we gear up for the 7th UN Global Road Safety Week (mid-May) and the ITS European Congress (end May) in Lisbon, preparations for our Federation’s participation to the ITF Summit in Leipzig (end of May) are also in full swing. June will also be quite hectic with a series of celebration activities for our 75th anniversary in Vienna, in the margins of the ISFO Symposium and the ASECAP Sustainability Forum. We look forward to meeting so many of you in person in the next weeks. 

This and a lot more in this second issue of IRF CROSSROADS for 2023.  

Get your agendas ready and good reading!
