ERTICO – ITS Europe
Role in the project
ERTICO is the Dissemination and Communication Manager of ICT4CART. It leads WP9 Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation and specifically Task 9.1 Communication Strategy and Tools, being responsible for the definition of the communication and dissemination strategy and the development of communication tools; it is also involved in the organisation of ICT4CART events. ERTICO has dedicated Communications and Events Departments covering all aspects needed, with staff who have a wide practical experience and knowledge of the most successful strategies and tactics to meet the project’s goals, as well as lessons learned from previous projects.
ERTICO equally contributes to the overall ICT4CART work plan; its department of connectivity and automation addresses new ICT technologies (5G, Cloud, IoT, digitization, Security) and ensures the potential of these technologies are well understood for the future ITS/ART solutions. The topic of ICT for Connected and automated transport is even more important for ERTICO, since it is acting as coordinator for EATA – the European Alliance for Telecom and Automotive that is targeting the short-term full-scale deployment of ICT pilots and solutions for automated driving.
