  • 4. There is a strong motivation to carry out FOTs in Europe and in otherparts of the world.Motivation to improve mobility…Safe mobility38 000 deaths on the roads in the EU according to 2008 statistics.Cleaner mobilityEC policy framework has set a target o 20% reduction of greenhousegases by 2020… and 20% increase in energy efficiency.And we believe that the deployment of ITS solutions is a step towards theimprovement of Mobility. 4
  • 5. So what has been done to achieve deployment?This next chart will demonstrate how FOTs fit into a broader deployment ofITS technologies.The results from FOTs support the preparation of policy decisions which inturn will lead to deployment.Projects and initiatives at Pan-European level funded by the EC .Below the dotted line are new EC funded activities which have recentlystarted.In the center is FOT-Net gathering inputs from the FOTs and sharing themwith the broader FOT community and also promoting the FOTmethodology. 5
  • 6. FOTs are often multi-stakeholder activities with their own expectations.But we can say that the main consumers of FOTs are policy makers andBusiness leaders. Why? 6
  • 7. So previous slides have shown that there are many FOT activities inEurope and that a supporting activity is useful tor bring all these activitiestogether under one umbrella.This next chart illustrates another way of how FOT-Net is placed in thebroader FOT landscape.FOT-Net support action funded by the European Commission, DGInformation Society and Media. Activities will last until 2013.We see the FOT landscape Three levels:Thematic level – FOT programme addresses different fields ofapplicationsGeographic – FOTs developed at national, european and global levelsTime – continuous support, bridging between the FESTA methodologyoutputs and the FOT activities.FOT-Net is there to serve as networking platform between these differentlevels. To PROMOTE, SHARE, INFORM AND SERVE AS A PLACE FOR 7DISCUSSION.
  • 8. FOTs: what is happening? Numerous FOTs testing different types ofapplications in Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. There is anopportunity to learn from all these but clearly there is a need forcoordination of all the available informationOne of the ways we address the cooperation needs is to bring allinformation available under one place the FOT-Wiki. The FOT-WikiAn encyclopedia that anyone can edit…Go to the google page. 8
