ITS (UK) has committed to increase interaction with members this year and to do more to support decarbonisation through technology. 

ITS UK chair Ryan Hood of TRL (Transport Research Laboratory) has written to all members to outline his plans for 2022, which include an ambition to grow membership. 

“The real value of ITS (UK) is in the collective network of members, and the knowledge sharing that happens between members that helps push the industry forward,” he explains, adding that he wants to provide additional resources to offer more interaction with members.

“Over the course of the year, we should aim to build on the success of achieving one webinar and forum session per week,” he continues, “put in place the infrastructure to support hybrid meetings where appropriate, and in addition seek to build on the success at ITS European and World Congresses of providing a marketing platform for organisations, particularly SMEs, to help promote their solutions overseas where it would otherwise be cost-prohibitive to do so in isolation.”

Ryan believes that the organisation can do more to provide its membership with the business support they may need to decarbonise their solutions. 

“I would like to see this as a key ambition throughout this year, and I would like to see us recognise those that are setting the bar at our annual awards later in the year,” he states.

The letter also explains recent changes to legal documents to better reflect the way ITS (UK) is run, and commits to continue to serve multinationals to micro-SMEs, facilitating networking, knowledge sharing and PR opportunities.

"Our members make us the powerful combined voice of the ITS Industry, leading the conversation about intelligent mobility. We look forward to serving you in 2022,” he concludes.
