Congress Format


The 14th ITS European Congress will take place from 18 – 20 May 2020 and host various sessions with top mobility experts speaking about key topics in the transport industry today. The event presents a strategic opportunity for all mobility stakeholders to come together, share knowledge, exchange best practices and make the necessary contacts to develop their businesses.

Streams

Plenary and Executive sessions will be organised in streams focussing on topical mobility issues. All attendees are welcome to join these sessions featuring start-ups talks, dialogue and panel discussions addressing challenges and opportunities in the mobility sector. Policy makers and executives from the industry will exchange practices on how to prepare cities and regions for transition into smart mobility, while moving people and goods efficiently, safely and cleanly. In these sessions, invited high level international industry executives, public officials and academic from around the world will draw from their experiences to share their views on ITS achievements, opportunities and challenges.

Proposed sessions (ex SIS) – 1h session

Organized at the request of groups of international experts developing and deploying ITS, these sessions provide the opportunity to focus on specific topics of interest.

Technical/Scientific sessions – 1h session

These sessions are composed of presentations by international experts and will includes topics encompassing all technical, scientific, economic, organisational and societal aspects of ITS.

Business presentations – 15 minutes

Business presentations describe a service aimed at generating or improving a specific product, device or idea for the market.

Invited sessions – 1h session

The Congress organisers invite a number of specific organizations to present “How ITS is changing the game in their field” in so called Invited Sessions. These sessions will be a very favourable framework to increase that awareness and possibly promote more efficient inter-modality. High-level representatives and key players will attract audience from other sectors and delegates across the ITS domain and beyond, so that better inter-sectorial knowledge can develop, hopefully leading to richer collaboration in the future. These sessions will be complemented by relevant proposed/technical/scientific sessions.
