The steps from Research to Deployment are not trivial in this area where the technical requirements are in the end only a (small) part of the problems to be addressed. The focus of the presentation will be on the identified gaps, the regulatory barriers, and the lessons learned, namely the need for cross-border coordination in order to achieve seamless service provision across borders – a problem of global relevance. Finally, the critical issue of co-funding of the necessary 5G+ITS infrastructure will be addressed in terms of co-existing business models involving the major stakeholders.
