IRF & UNECE ITS event
December 4, 2018
In a world of smart, connected and autonomous mobility what is the role that infrastructure plays and will play and how can it keep pace with the technology developments happening in the motor vehicles industry and overall the way people move? In such a rapid changing environment, what is the right governance model public authorities should adopt?
To debate these issues, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and IRF are pleased to join hands for the IRF & UNECE ITS event, a flagship event to be hosted at the UN headquarters in Geneva on 4th December 2018. This high-level ITS event will focus on “Governance and Infrastructure for Smart and Connected Mobility” and is being organized to kick start a collaborative dialogue among key ITS stakeholders following recent technology developments in our sector.
In 2012, the International Road Federation (IRF) led a collaborative effort that resulted into the publication of the “IRF Vienna Manifesto on ITS”. The document laid out a series of policy recommendations for political leaders and decision-makers to create proper policy frameworks to unleash the full potential of ITS. Six years down the road, the key areas on which policy recommendations were formulated still remain work in progress in many countries of the world. While taking stock of this 6-year journey to assess progress, IRF looks now at the emerging challenges with the aim to develop, in close collaboration with UNECE, enabling frameworks that will allow to properly address those challenges.
The event will be a great opportunity to learn about latest developments in this fast-moving sector, to network with government officials and private sector representatives from all over the world and to exchange experiences.
There is no registration fee for the event but seats available are limited. Registration in advance is highly recommended. The security of the United Nations will allow entrance to UN premises only or to those who have registered the system.
