Roll-out of interactive traffic management successfully kicked-off
MUNICH, 23 & 24 October 2017 – The SOCRATES2.0 consortium has successfully kicked-off the project in a two day workshop. With most of the partners present, head of BMW Mobility Technologies Martin Hauschild officially started the project with a challenging vision on the future of mobility, followed by the individual partners visions. This resulted in a good and common vision on the future of the SOCRATES2.0 project and -results and was topped off with an excellent visit at the BMW World exposition.
During the workshop all activities were revisited and the starting points were validated. Twenty-four participants from the majority of partners were present during the two day kick-off. The cooperation was characterized by the openness and willingness to share of all partners.
