European ITS Platform (EIP)


Within the framework of a global project fostering the development of ITS integrated services along transport corridors, the European ITS Platform (EIP) of road authorities and operators aimed at enhancing the deployment of harmonised ITS services and the coordinated management of road transport in Europe. The European ITS Platform was a key player in supporting the future European ITS deployment plans. The Platform combined resources from different EU actors (EIP Member States/Beneficiaries, public and private road operators) in a joint effort to ensure the creation of a proper environment for harmonising existing and future ITS services according to EU policies and objectives, as well as building upon the achievements of the Easy Way programme. Concretely the following objective were met:

  •  Providing strategic guidance and facilitate consensus building amongst the countries beneficiaries, road operators and other public and private stakeholders interacting with the European ITS Committee and the European Commission ensuring coherence between national and European policies by safeguarding the EU added value of the project.
  • Releasing the EasyWay Deployment Guidelines 2012 by developing updated part B (change of national examples of deployment to best practice regarding part a requirements) and drafting factsheets on the national applications of the DG2012.
  • Fostering a harmonised concept for “single access point” for data/information in the following way. - Supporting the maintenance and improvement of the DATEX specifications and the deployment of ITS services.
  • Developing a framework to enhance future ITS harmonised and deployment in Europe. This framework would be based on a clear definition of the state of art for ITS core services across Europe.
