The 4th Pan-European CoP Forum

16 March 2022

Thursday, February 24th 2022 the Fourth Pan-EU CoP Forum was held. This time the event was organized as a half-day event, dedicated to digitalisation in the future European standardisation for inspection, monitoring and maintenance of transport infrastructures.

Forum chair, Dr. Rizal Sebastian (TNO), comments on how the event went: “It is remarkable to see the active role of public clients, technology market leaders, scientists, and representatives from the standardisation bodies and the European Commission among the nearly 120 participants and panellists. They shared deep thoughts and best practices of digital innovations for monitoring and safety of transport infrastructures. This underlines the importance of digitalisation and European standardisation in this area.”

The IM-SAFE project is paving the road towards the improvement of maintenance policies for the European transport infrastructure. The main goal of this project is to support the preparation of the mandate for CEN in monitoring, safety assessment and risk evaluation for transport infrastructure.

Proposing new standards for diagnostics and safety evaluation of infrastructure is also targeting the collection, use and management of digital data. During the forum on the 24th of February, best practice examples, project outcomes and panel discussions were presented in three sessions:
