Open doors for EU projects – “EUrope in Vienna” 2018

Apr 10, 2018

With financial support from European Structural and Investment Funds, many projects are being implemented within the countries of the EU. Most of these projects probably wouldn’t exist without this support and they aren’t really known to the general public. The European Commission therefore has initiated the campaign “Europe in my region”. The aim is to bring EU-funded projects and their effects closer to citizens in all member states.

Cross-border travel information (LinkingDanube)

AustriaTech invites all interested parties to an interactive discussion on the topic of cross-border travel information on the 18th of May 2018 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Using the Linking Danube project, experts explain how a route planner works exactly and why cross-border information poses a particular challenge.

Travel information services, such as route planners, provide travelers with information on the optimal mode of transport for all transportation modes. While very good information systems already exist for regional areas, cross-border information is lagging behind. The LinkingDanube project addresses this problem by linking the largely isolated systems across borders.

Learn more about the development and history of travel planning services and gain insight into future solutions and innovative approaches. Discuss with experts from AustriaTech and Verkehrsauskunft Österreich (VAO) what distinguishes Google from platforms like “” and how the information on all means of transport is collected.

The interviewees:


  • Martin Russ (Managing director, AustriaTech GmbH)

"Why is travel information an issue for AustriaTech?"


"Where are we going? What role does the City of Vienna play in this?"


"How do route planners in Austria work - the traffic information Austria".


  • Martin Böhm (Department Head, AustriaTech GmbH),

"How do route planners work in Austria?"


  • Bettina Neuhäuser (Project leader, „LinkingDanube“ AustriaTech),

"Presentation of the Linking Danube project"


“LinkingDanube” is supported by the European Regional Development Fund – INTERREG Danube Transnational 2014-2020.
