First In-Time Forum – Fine tuning the pilot phase
The first In-Time Forum took place on the morning of Friday, 26 March 2010 at the Intertraffic 2010, Amsterdam.
High level participants from industry and service providers as well as city and regional representatives had the opportunity to critically examine the In-Time project’s achievements and aims, the technical solutions to be deployed and the progress and models of the six In-Time Pilot cities - Brno, Bucharest, Florence, Munich, Oslo and Vienna.
The overall objective of the Forum was to present the In-Time project to interested parties including city and regional representatives vital for the post-project success of In-Time, and to gather feedback before the launch of the pilot phase (May 2010).
The event opened with introductions from Eva Boethius (DG INFSO) and Eric Kenis (DG MOVE) and a project overview from Gerald Lamprecht (Project Coordinator AustriaTech) before moving on to the In-Time “marketplace”.
The “marketplace” allowed participants to break off into fluid groups in order to focus on their areas of interest in the In-Time project. “Marketplace stalls” were dedicated to why and how a city would participate or follow the project, the technical aspects of In-Time and the overall concepts of In-Time.
The participants were then divided into four working groups to analyse and provide feedback of and for the In-Time project. Useful and stimulating discussions ranged over legal/regulatory aspects, add-on services, system architecture and the boundaries of services and policy and community generated content.
Martin Boehm (Project Coordinator, Austriatech) said “The feedback provided vital and highly targeted information which will enable us to fine tune the In-Time project in accordance with the realities and needs of stakeholders.
