USE-iT and FOX at TRB
Organised together with REFINET
The USE-iT and FOX projects, along with its sister CSA REFINET CSA organized this year 2017 again a common Workshop at the Transport Research Board International conference (TRB2017). The Workshop was about Cross Modal Transport Infrastructure, and has been held on Tuesday January 10, 2017 from 3:30 PM until 5:00 PM at the Washington Convention Center.
After opening remarks and introduction to the session by Thierry Goger (FEHRL), the European Commission (Robert Missen & Maria Cristina Marolda, DG Mobility and Transport, Unit Innovation and Research) insisted on the need for cross modal transport infrastructure development.
This was followed by a presentation from Alain Zarli (CSTB & ECTP) on REFINET and its ongoing achievements on Multi-modal transport infrastructure model, R&I priorities and Strategic Implementation Plan, inviting the audience to further interact with the REFINET Consortium as far as R&I priorities are concerned. Thierry Goger then introduced to the FOX and USE-iT projects, and R&D&I and Best Practices Cross-modal Priorities as well as R&D&I and Best Practices Cross-modal Priorities respectively.
A short discussion further took place, including about next steps to be taken up for achieving more integration between transport and infrastructures in the future, before closing remarks by FEHRL & CSTB.
This Workshop was followed by attendees from BAST, CEDR, European Commission, FHWA, NPRA and RWS between other.
