The ITS World Congress is an annual international congress focused on intelligent transport systems. Each year, the World Congress is hosted in one of three regions: Europe, Asia-Pacific or the Americas.

​ The Congress offered a large-scale, unique demonstration platform to present technological innovations in the field of ITS. Demonstrations highlighted current technical possibilities within the framework of the ITS themes in an interactive way for the visitor.

​ The ITS Congress had over 200 sessions and workshops in which participants could attend a variety of discussions with high-level officials, industry and academic leaders. The Congress provided opportunities to experience outstanding demonstrations with cutting-edge solutions, an extensive list of technical visits and tours, over 400 individual exhibitors showcasing the latest, most exceptional solutions and innovations in ITS, a start-up area with over 40 creative innovators, and a great networking and social programme.
During the ITS World Congress CARNET organized two activities for the winners of Citython Hamburg. The first one took place on 14th October at Acció Booth, where the winners of the Hamburg edition had the opportunity to present their winning solutions and after that have networking with visitors.

On Friday, 15th October on the stage of the Start-up area, the winners had another opportunity to take advantage of this international event and present their winning solutions to the general public. The event had two objectives – from one side to give more visibility of the Citython Project and EIT Urban Mobility and for another, to recognize the winners of the Hamburg edition. The winners received a special certificate and congratulations from Peter Vest, Director Innovation at EIT Urban Mobility.

​ Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all partners and specially ITS World Congress Hamburg for the collaboration in this project.
