Objectibe of the workshop
During the workshop a number of case studies will be briefly presented, namely ITS that have already been set up in various organizations in the broader area of Thessaloniki (e.g. Thessaloniki’s commercial port, urban transport, taxi association, etc). The open discussion that will follow will focus on the barriers/obstacles for commercialization of I.T.S. solutions.
