Networking for Field Operational Tests

FOT-Net stakeholders regularly meet at European and international workshops, to identify working items addressing common experiences and problems related to the execution of FOTs and to find common solutions.

Participation in FOT-Net gives organisations a real opportunity to understand and influence future research and market opportunity, and network with other key European players.

The FOT-Net project aims to gather European and international stakeholders in a strategic networking platform to present results of Field Operational Tests (FOTs), identify and discuss common working items and promote a common approach for FOTs- the FESTA methodology. FOT-Net is a Specific Support Action funded by the European Commission DG Information Society and Media under the Seventh Framework Programme.


The project is coordinated by partners from

  • Associations:  ERTICO-ITS Europe, Fédération Internationale de L’Automobile (FIA), Polis, ASFA
  • Public authorities: Rijkswaterstaat
  • Universities: Chalmers University of Technology, University of Leeds, IKA
  • Research centres: CTAG, TNO, Fraunhofer Institute, BAST
  • Vehicle manufacturers: Volvo Cars, CRF, Renault

The duration of the FOT project is 36 months, starting on 1 January 2011.  Total cost: €1.4 Million


Below are some of the forthcoming events over the next two months:
