We talked to Hans Fiby, Head of ITS Vienna Region:


Why does ITS Vienna Region support TRA 2018 as an official bronze sponsor?

Research, development and innovation have been key competences for ITS Vienna Region from the beginning in the year 2006. ITS Vienna Region is a partner within a network of experts in public authorities, companies, research and innovation. TRA is an important science event for presenting ITS Vienna Region research results.

What does A Digital Era for Transport means to you?

Smart devices, intermodal routing services, real time data, e-mobility, sharing concepts and mobility as a service open up entirely new possibilities for traffic operators, service providers and daily transport users. Public authorities must control and manage traffic in new ways. New forms of cooperation among public, scientific and commercial actors will be necessary.
