A new European project on ITS capacity building, CAPITAL, is looking for input from public bodies and other transport bodies on their priorities and needs for improving awareness and understanding of ITS.
CAPITAL (Collaborative cApacity Programme on ITS Training-educAtion and Liaison project) aims to build a collaborative capacity community and deployment programme to support public and private stakeholders in the implementation of (C-)ITS by means of workshops and learning. The project expects to assist public and private stakeholders in developing their knowledge, skills, and abilities to build technical, business and policy making proficiency regarding ITS deployment while furthering their professional development.
The project is undertaking a survey that is designed for public authorities, transport operators, transport related service operators, ITS Associations and ITS experts, with different levels of ITS know-how. The main goal of the survey is to identify the ITS deployment priorities from the viewpoint of the public sector, best-practices cases as well as major challenges that hinder ITS deployment. In addition, the questionnaire aims to identify the current level of already existing ITS expertise as well as gaps in know-how of different topics, which will help CAPITAL to ascertain the specific training needs and priorities. Building on this information CAPITAL will develop tailor-made training modules and materials.
The questionnaire takes just 10-15 minutes to complete and will remain open until 3 May 2017.
