With the collaboration of DATEX II and the C-Roads Platform, two major European initiatives for harmonisation join forces against the background of emerging cooperative intelligent transport services (C-ITS). Both of them have used various opportunities to demonstrate their technical and strategic importance in increasing the safety and efficiency of transport in Europe and beyond. With high potential for synergies, a cooperation between DATEX II and C-Roads was the logical next step. The ITS Europe Congress 2019 in Eindhoven provides the backdrop for the signature of a collaboration agreement.
DATEX II will be present at the ITS European Congress 2019 which will take place on the 3rd-6th of June 2019 in Brainport, the Netherlands! Bard de Vries, our TMG chair, will present DATEX II in the session "Information chain protocols and standards" on the 5th of June from 14.30h - 15.30h.

The 2018 DATEX II Forum concluded with the Declaration of Utrecht: a non-binding guidance document for the future of DATEX II. The DATEX II Steering Group (SG) has since adopted the declaration and has taken into account its content in writing the work plan for 2019-2020. The SG now explains how the DATEX II organization will incorporate the feedback received from the community in the document "DATEX II Forum 2018 and beyond".
