What does the forum theme “ITS Innovation Creating Liveable Communities” mean to you?
Innovation is the key ingredient in everything we do at ERTICO. We were established almost 30 years ago with the purpose of making a more liveable society by solving the mobility challenges through deployment of intelligent innovative systems and services.
Why are you excited about participating at the ITS Asia Pacific Forum on Intelligent Transport Systems 2020?
Alone we can do so little but through cooperation and knowledge sharing at international level we can achieve so much which is why events like this is very important for ERTICO.

In ERTICO we believe in forming the future together with our partners. With our 2030 strategy we set the goal for where we want to be and it is now up to us to develop the necessary steps to get there. We are working hard on making an internet for mobility that will make the mobility sector safer, cleaner and more efficient in the future.
