  Roads are of outmost importance for mobility of people and transport of goods throughout Europe. Experts believe that up to 50% of the total maintenance budget is spent on winter maintenance in many European countries. It therefore has a high significance not only in keeping roads, cycle tracks and footways free from ice and snow but also in matters of pedestrian, cyclist and driver safety. COST Action 353 „ winter service strategies for increased European road safety” started in April 2004 and ran for a four year period until April 2008. Participants from 22 European countries have been intensively working together from the very beginning to achieve the main objective of the Action – to develop a framework for the management of winter traffic for maximized road safety, and the secondary objective – to integrate new methods of winter maintenance management through the use of the latest technologies for management, communication and vehicle positioning.

The similarity algorithm calculates how much two contents in the system are similar to one another. So far, similarity is calculated based on similarity of the project type, area of interest and user type. Generally, if two contents have more parameters in common they are more similar to each another. More information.
