This year’s digital event will host six sessions and interactive discussions which will be thoroughly examined by experts and professionals in the field, representatives of the authorities and the academic and research community, from Greece and abroad. The sessions will be focused on the following topics:

In the framework of the conference, two additional Workshops will be held and will be focused on the activities and research work conducted within the C-ROADS and the 2CeVau European projects.

The scope of the C-ROADS Greece Workshop, which will be held on Monday the 14th of December, is to inform national stakeholders (passenger and freight transport) and key players for the deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) in Greece with special focus on the test sites (Egnatia Pilot and Attica Pilot) and also consult them to latest C-ITS services. Within the frame of the workshop a round table discussion will be hosted on the presented topics aiming to share experiences and receive valuable feedback from the participants. More information is available here.

The objective of the 2CeVau workshop, which will be held on Tuesday the 15th of December, is two-fold: on the one hand, it seeks to inform the participants on the relevant cyber-security challenges in (automated driving) corridors and discuss the so-far 2CeVau technical results. On the other hand, the workshop will promote the exchange of ideas, proposals and fruitful discussions among the research community and the intelligent transport systems industrial experts.
