Workshop objectives

A series of Round Tables were organised at FOT-Net’s Fifth International Workshop addressing FOT issues that have been identified as of high priority to the FOT community. An international panel of FOT experts were invited to debate in each round table. Other experts and stakeholders were also welcome to participate to the round tables as observers.  During the afternoon session, conclusions from the round tables were presented and discussion was open to the general FOT community who validated these conclusions.


General objectives of this workshop included:

  • Reinforce the global FOT network in order to exchange knowledge, best practices and foster cooperation for FOT activities.
  • Contribute to the discussions of the FOT-Net Working Groups which have been set-up to tackle specific sets of issues to further enhance and revise the FESTA methodology for FOTs.
  • Support the coherent development and implementation of FOTs at European and International level.
  • Increase the cooperation between FOT activities and their stakeholders leading to faster and effective take up of Intelligent Transport Systems and Services.
