Significant steps made in definition of Shared Vision
BERGISCH GLADBACH, 10 & 11 January 2018 – The SOCRATES2.0 partners for Activity 2 (Cooperation framework) have jointly made a significant step within the project by defining the Shared Vision. This Shared Vision is the basis within SOCRATES2.0 to assess the use-cases, pilots and possibilities to work together, and is the underlying basis for creating shared value. During the two day workshop 23 participants actively contributed to defining the Shared Vision.
SOCRATES2.0 aims at realising services for interactive traffic management in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Antwerp and Munich and at assessing ways to work together to create mutual benefits.
