Activity description

Project Management aims to:
• Enable the DATEX II partners
o To continue the standardisation activities based on operational user needs
o To support the DATEX II user community in applying the standard(s) within their services
• Take the lead and facilitate in the cooperation with DG-MOVE

In order to do this, day-to-day management tasks include monitoring the allocation of resources, organising strategic (SG) and technical (TMG) meetings and performing risk management actions when needed. Similarly, more executive decisions are also part of this activity, including reviewing the tactical and strategic vision of DATEX II, preparing and processing meeting decisions, adopting the technical work plans, and establishing and carrying out a communication strategy. All parties involved in this activity also have a role to play in starting and maintaining liaisons with stakeholders (e.g. TM2.0, TN-ITS, C-Roads and EU EIP) for the further development of DATEX II. In addition to the standard liaison activities that the Steering Group and Technical Management Group members carry out, a Stakeholder Advisory Board (STAB) is also managed under this activity. The STAB holds yearly meetings and consists of high-level representatives of relevant stakeholders to disseminate knowledge and receive advice, requirements, and feedback on new developments. Members of the STAB include stakeholders like ERTICO, TISA, POLIS, Scania, Kapsch, DG MOVE, Amsterdam Group, Transmodel, TomTom, HERE, CEDR and CEN. More information about the DATEX II organisation and its layers can be found here.
