After three years, the EU funded project CAPITAL (Collaborative cApacity Programme on ITS Training-educAtion and Liaison) came to an end. CAPITAL aimed to support public and private stakeholders in the implementation of ITS and C-ITS through training activities and by creating a collaborative capacity-building community.
FIA Region I supported CAPITAL by engaging stakeholders in ITS and establishing communities, assessing the capacity needs and knowledge gaps, developing educational and informational materials, and organising showcases while exploiting the collaborative capacity building programme.
The project has left a legacy that will still be useful for public and private stakeholders wishing to learn more about ITS & C-ITS deployment. All interested parties can find best practices collected within the project in the “Online Transferability Handbook”, an online tool presenting different ITS/C-ITS services (e.g. e-payment; e-ticketing; Mobility as a Service; Road user charging) provided by cities, regions or corridors. Furthermore, the project’s 10 online training courses on ITS & C-ITS deployment will remain open to the public on the CAPITAL Online Training Platform.
The closing event took place in Rome on 25 September and was jointly organised with the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport.
