FISITA, the international membership organisation for the automotive and mobility systems engineering profession, has formed a Strategic Partnership with ERTICO to strengthen international cooperation and stakeholder engagement.
ERTICO is a public-private partnership of 120 companies and organisations representing service providers, suppliers, traffic and transport industry, research, public authorities, user organisations, mobile network operators, and vehicle manufactures.
ERTICO embodies thought leadership and fosters stakeholder engagement, together with its Partners. ERTICO develops, promotes and deploys Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (ITS) through a variety of activities including European co-funded projects, innovation platforms, international cooperation, advocacy and events.
Commenting on the partnership, Jacob Bangsgaard, CEO at ERTICO, said: “I am pleased to start this new cooperation with FISITA, an organisation that represents the excellence of transport engineering worldwide. Partnership is at the heart of ERTICO’s mission; I believe that this cooperation will enrich both organisations.”
Kelly Williams, Director of Member Services at FISITA, said: “As we look to a future of mobility, it is crucial that the industry is prepared to work together to achieve sustainable mobility that is both economically and environmentally viable. I look forward to continuing to build upon this partnership that will support dialogue across industry and help lay down the pathways to progress.”
ERTICO was founded in 1991 at the initiative of 15 leading members of the European Industry. Now, with more than 120 partners, ERTICO connects public authorities, industry players, infrastructure operators, users, national ITS associations and other organisations, and works to “Shape intelligent mobility for Europe together”.
FISITA offers exclusive membership to global organisations like ERTICO, that are active within the mobility systems engineering industry. They can access an exclusive range of international technical events, knowledge sharing, committee activities and technical networking opportunities.
