Join FOT-Net, the platform for exchange on Field Operational Tests
Creation date: 03 July 2008
During the lifetime of the different Field Operational Tests (FOT) carried out both at the National and European level, there is a crucial need for a platform of knowledge exchange in order to let individual FOTís benefit from each othersí learning experiences.
Led by ERTICO - ITS Europe and supported by the European Commission 7th Framework Programme of Information Society Technologies, the FOT-Net projectís primary objective is to establish a platform for strategic networking of existing and future National, European and Global FOTs (e.g. US and Japan). All stakeholder groups that play or will play an active and relevant role in existing and future National, European and Global FOTs should be involved in this important initiative.
Open to all stakeholders from public and private sectors, this networking platform will provide a benchmarking overview of the socio-economic potential of ICT based functions and systems for road transport all over Europe.
The project will contribute to improve significance, visibility, comparability and transferability of available FOT results at National and European level by promoting the implementation of a common European FOT methodology (FESTA results).
FOT-Net is already planning activities after the summer:
- 25 September 2008: a first stakeholder workshop will present the FOT-net activity, existing and planned FOT activities and identify the main issues arising when organising an FOT. The precise details of the workshop will be confirmed soon.
- 21 November 2008 in New York: just after the ITS World Congress, FOT-net will organise an international meeting with US representatives involved in FOTs. The aim of this meeting will be to foster exchange of ideas and synergies between international partners.
