European network of national ITS associations lead by ITS&S Vice-president

For the first time, leading figure from region of Central or Eastern Europe was elected on the prestigious post of chairman of ITS Nationals, a network of 27 national associations of transport telematics.

On March 17th the new Chairman of the Network became Mr Roman Srp, vice-president of Czech and Slovak ITS&S. He was elected for a two-year period. Since 2006 Mr Srp as a vice-president of Czech and Slovak ITS&S defends interests of Czech telematics. The association ITS&S currently gathers together 77 companies and institutions from both private and public sectors, which operate in the Czech Republic as well as abroad.

New ITS Nationals Chairman’s goals are more intensive coordinated support and mutual cooperation of Network members, i.e. national associations, for more effective deployment of intelligent transport systems in practice across Europe. Aforementioned will surely appreciate not only representatives of national and regional governments, but ultimately drivers, passengers and corporate users of transport infrastructure.
