Stepping aboard ITS Finland network
ITS Finland acts as a cooperation forum for intelligent traffic and transport development, bringing together parties from government, research and companies. ITS stands for Intelligent Transport Systems and Services.
The main aim of the association is to create tangible transport telematic solutions to serve the citizens and the trade and industry in Finland, but also to build international network of contacts and to promote cooperation between countries.
ITS seeks to achieve this by promoting general prerequisites for intelligent traffic and transport services, and by increasing awareness of the social effectiveness of information and communications technology in solving road, maritime, rail and air traffic problems.
ITS Finland is part of the international Network of National ITS Associations.
The association is open to all new members who support the association’s purpose. A free-format membership application must be addressed to the association’s CEO in writing (for example via email).
