Developing and implementing a collaborative approach that includes all EU Countries is fundamental in supporting integrated road safety strategies, reduction of congestion and the improvement of environmental conditions. In order to guarantee European cooperation and co-ordination in ITS, considerable efforts have to be made to establish common frameworks for ITS deployment. The necessity to collect and evaluate research results on a European scale is the basis for defining precise answers to road safety problems.
For this reason, EasyWay has its dedicated Expert and Studies Groups (ESGs) in six different fields for the period 2010-2012. These will support pilots, develop frameworks and deployment guidelines to improve the availability of accurate, relevant and timely data/information to support policy decisions and will be a platform for future projects. Below is the list of the six ESGs.
