The CAPITAL project, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, has released a questionnaire to identify the needs and knowledge gaps for building tailor made training programmes on ITS and (C)ITS.
The project targets a wide range of actors from the public and private sectors and is supported by the C-ITS platform managed by the European Commission.
The aim of the CAPITAL project is to build a collaborative capacity community and deployment programme to support public and private stakeholders in the implementation of ITS (C-ITS) with training and educational resources which enable knowledge transfer about the benefits and deployment of ITS. The project will assist public and private stakeholders in developing their knowledge, skills, and abilities to build technical, business and policy making proficiency of ITS deployment while furthering their professional development.
Objective of this questionnaire
This survey is especially designed for public authorities, transport operators, transport related service operators, ITS Associations and ITS experts, with different levels of know-how. CAPITAL also encourages people unaware of ITS to also complete the questionnaire. A short explanation on ITS is also included in this questionnaire.
The main goal of this inquiry is to identify most crucial deployment priorities of ITS from the view of the public sector, best-practices cases as well as major challenges that hinder further ITS deployment. At the same time, this questionnaire aims to identify the current level of ITS expertise as well as knowledge gaps in different topics, which will help CAPITAL to assess specific training needs and priorities. Building on this information, CAPITAL will develop tailor-made supporting training modules and materials.
The main themes of the questionnaire include:
- Priorities within different ITS deployment topics/fields
- Collection of best-practices and business models your country/organisation
- Difficulties that hinder deployment
- Existing knowledge gaps and training needs
The completion of this questionnaire should only take about 10-15 minutes of your time.
The questionnaire will be open until 3rd of May 2017.
