ECTRI supports Member States’ efforts to create a regulatory environment addressing CCAM societal challenges

Within the context of the Belgian Presidency of the Council in 2024, ECTRI was invited to attend the High-Level Dialogue on Connected and Automated Driving on June 18th and 19th, 2024, in Ghent, Belgium. This high-level event, organized by the Flemish Ministry of Mobility and Public Works with support from the CCAM partnership, brought together heads of transport ministries, national experts, European Commission representatives, as well as experts from industry, European associations and researchers to engage in insightful discussions and explore the latest developments and coordinated next steps in the field of connected and automated driving.

At this occasion, Member States signed a pledge, committing to a connected and automated transport future in Europe. 

ECTRI was represented at the event by its President and CCAM Cluster 6 leader for “Societal Aspects and People Needs,” Ingrid Skogsmo, and Secretary-General, Caroline Alméras.

As a research partner, ECTRI welcomes the call for action to the European Commission and the industry to support and contribute to creating the right regulatory environment to address societal challenges and meet the objectives of European, national, regional, and local authorities, particularly in improving road safety and providing sustainable, inclusive, and affordable transport for all.
