Workshop On Cooperative Systems For Sustainable Transportation

The EU-US Sustainability Working Group (SWG) was conducting its 2nd joint workshop on October 9th 2015 in Bordeaux, France. The objective of the workshop was to help identify the SWG’s activities for the next few years. The EU-US SWG has been engaged in joint activities since its inception in 2009. Over the past year, the SWG completed five white papers on various topics related to connected vehicle applications and strategies designed to reduce the environmental impact of surface transportation. These white papers identified commonalities and differences in the research carried out in the two regions. The research gaps identified in the white papers can potentially translate to research areas that the SWG could jointly explore from 2016 through 2020. During the workshop, the international audience was engaged to deliberate and prioritize the research topics, and discuss prospects for collaborative research. The discussions took place in the context of Horizon 2020 in the EU and the future of the Connected Vehicle research program in the US.

Date: Friday 9 October 2015
Time: 09:00 – 12:00
Location: Palais des Congres
Room: H1 & H2
