Just over two years ahead of the 2021 ITS World Congress, the host city of Hamburg and the organisers of the Congress, ERTICO – ITS Europe, have sealed their cooperation.

Jacob Bangsgaard and Didier Gortmann from Ertico, together with Senator Westhagemann from Hamburg, signed a MoU , which builds upon the agreement signed at the 2017 ITS World Congress in Montreal, and which is enriched with two additional topics: Urban Air Mobility and Sustainable Transport.

The other topics of the 2021 ITS World Congress include Automated and Connected Driving, MaaS, Ports and Logistics Solutions as well as Intelligent Infrastructure. Within the topic of Urban Air Mobility, scenarios for exploring civilian uses of drones and other urban aviation technologies will discussed. Sustainable Transport will focus on the role of low-emission and emission-free modes of transport and In addition to technological issues, regulatory implications will also be dealt with in both areas.

“Traffic is currently experiencing the greatest change since the invention of the car. With the ITS World Congress 2021 and beyond, we want to set standards that make urban mobility safe, quiet, efficient and reliable. This includes networking, environmental friendliness, shared mobility options and many other solutions for which Hamburg is the optimal platform,” said Senator Westhagemann.
