The EasyWay Projects phase I (2007-2009 ) and phase II (2010-2012) have been co-funded by the European Commission and are part of the EasyWay Global Programme 2007-2020.
The core objective of EWI/II was to deploy Europe‐wide ITS Core Services for the benefit of the road users. By doing so, the Programme supports the transport policy goals concerning road safety, environmental impact from transport and mobility. In both EW Project phases were settled clear targets, identifying the set of necessary ITS European Core Services to deploy: Travelers Information Services, Traffic Management Services and Freight and Logistic Services; at the same time EasyWay I and II have represented an efficient and unique Platform that allows the European mobility stakeholders to achieve a coordinated and combined deployment of these pan-European services.
A European wide Programme like EasyWay requests a strong and appropriate Programme Organisation. Based on the cooperation started in the TEMPO Programme (2001-2006) proven organisational elements are retained whereas other organisational structures have been improved or abolished within EasyWay phase I and especially EasyWay phase II.
