Tallinn Workshop

CEDR/CAD Workshop

The DIRIZON project was represented at the Tallinn workshop by TNO, the purpose of which was to align and launch the project work packages on data needs, stakeholder relationships and views, digital platform and business models, and ensure alignment on use cases. Approximately 30 CAD/CEDR members took part in the workshop which focused on;

  • Identifying the different roles to be filled in the use cases

  • Assigning the actors/organisations to the different roles, from different delivery perspectives (Public/Road Operator only, Road Operator-private cooperation, market-driven)

  • Collecting input on data and data sources relevant to the different use cases (incl. the data providers for each data category)

  • Collecting views on the preconditions/prerequisites on data exchange

  • Identifying opportunities and risks with respect to security/data protection, privacy, architecture and governance

  • Developing perspectives on what aspects the NRAs can cooperate in realizing the use cases in Europe
