The two-day training workshop 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 and regional levels.

The workshop was mainly addressed at traffic managers, transport planners, and decision makers from local and regional authorities. The programme was organised around plenary and working group sessions. The plenary sessions included information about road network management and the concepts, benefits, and possible deployment of cooperative systems. The working group sessions allowed for in-depth discussions of the potential use and benefits of cooperative systems, and possible ways in which deployment of cooperative systems could be managed by public authorities.
