Pilot ITS Online Training Platform presented at Smart Cities and Mobility as a Service Conference
On 7 & 8 December 2017, the CAPITAL project demonstrated its hotly anticipated intelligent transport online training platform at the “Smart Cities and Mobility as a Service” International Conference.
The conference, which was held in Patras, Greece, was organised by the University of Patras’s Department of Civil Engineering, in cooperation with ITS Hellas and the support of the Hellenic Institute of Transportation Engineers and Aimsun, under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport.
Within the framework of Smart Cities and Mobility as a Service, the Conference was an opportunity for industry, public organisations, local government and authorities, universities, researchers, consultants, constructors and freelancers to exchange views on current and future challenges and solutions for ITS and C-ITS deployment.
The CAPITAL project was presented by Dr. Evangelos Mitsakis in a special session dedicated to ITS and training. The project was also represented by a stand in the exhibition area of the conference where CAPITAL partners presented the on-line training tool being developed by the project and told the audience how to register and use this training tool. Various representatives from local authorities in Greece participated and got to see first-hand the upcoming opportunities for ITS training the CAPITAL project can provide.
The event provided CAPITAL partners with a lot of insight regarding the needs and specific requirements of Greek organisations and authorities. This feedback will be taken into account for the organisation of the Greek – Balkan training programme to be held in Greece during 2019.
