CROCODILE 2 is a co-financed European project (CEF 2014-2020), which involves public authorities, road administrations, and traffic information service providers in an effort to ensure coordinated traffic management and control, resulting in high quality traveler information services. Partners from several European Countries work together in order to improve cross-border transportation through the implementation of harmonized and synchronized ITS applications.
The Greek Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport is the beneficiary of the Crocodile 2 project on behalf of Greece. It is the party responsible for the monitoring of progress during the implementation of the project. Four implementing bodies are participating in the Crocodile 2 project on behalf of Greece with the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas-Hellenic Institute of Transport (CERTH-HIT) being of them. Its main mission within the project is to design and create the National Access Point (NAP) on behalf of the Greek Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport.
The National Access Point provides a single interface through which transport-related data from various data providers are made accessible to the public. Datasets are accompanied by a standardized set of metadata in order to facilitate their exchange and reuse. Among others, the implementation of such a National Access Point is a requirement of the European Union.

On Crocodile 2 project’s booth, visitors will have the opportunity to be informed about the National Access Point. At the same time, they will be able to browse the National Access Point in order to explore the opportunities it offers, as well as the benefits that can bring to data providers and data consumers.
The Crocodile 2 project is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union and the Greek Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport.
