CVIS Summer School 2009

Training seminar for young transport engineers on concept, benefits and deployment of cooperative systems

Clermont-Ferrand, France

10-11 September 2009

Invitation (programme and registration) EN ()

Invitation (programme et inscription) FR ()




The two-day summer school aimed at providing participants with a solid grounding in the basic concepts and current research & development related to cooperative systems as well as introducing the potential of this technology to address transport challenges at urban, regional and national levels.
Young transport engineers from all over Europe – students and graduates – are invited to join the interactive programme prepared by the CVIS project partners. The programme is organised around plenary and working group sessions. In the plenary sessions, we provided information about the concepts, benefits and possible uses of cooperative systems. In the working groups, participants worked on developing potential applications to make road transport greener, safer and more comfortable. They was guided by experienced partners from the CVIS project.


The two-day programme was part of the longer summer school entitled "The city of the future" which is organised by the universities, high schools and public transport provider of Clermont-Ferrand.

The summer school on cooperative systems was organised by Polis – a European network of cities and regions for transport solutions – within the framework of the CVIS European research project.
