Advancing Innovation & Deployment
The EU supported collaboration projects provide ERTICO Partners with the opportunity to get involved in cutting-edge ITS research and deployment. ERTICO provides management, dissemination and technical support for developing and operating such projects. For the co-funded projects ERTICO works closely with the European Commission, with a co-funding rate of between 50% and 100% depending on the scope of the project and the activities within the project.
Co-funded projects are an important tool for ERTICO to fulfil its mission by bringing Partners together to provide common solutions to tasks that are central to the effective development and deployment of ITS. Shared public and private co-funding ensures the mutual recognition of the relevance and acceptance of the projects’ work.
The ERTICO Partnership is leading European pre-deployment pilot projects in close cooperation with local and national authorities with the objective to lay the foundations for Europe-wide implementation by addressing strategic deployment issues such as interoperability, cost benefit analysis, legal frameworks, user/product awareness and business development.
Thanks to ERTICO’s diverse multi-sector Partnership, project results are regarded as representative and accepted as a baseline for standards. ERTICO projects also provide Partners with an opportunity to develop a multi-service approach, which facilitates the creation of business cases.
