The 7th Transport Research Arena (TRA) will take place in Vienna, Austria, from 16 to 19 April 2018, and will focus on efficiency and sustainable transport. UITP has a long and successful history with TRA through the ongoing research projects SETRIS (Strengthening European Transport Research and Innovation Strategies), ERRAC (European Rail Research Advisory Council) and ERTRAC (European Road Transport Research Advisory Council). Through SETRIS, the Association once again takes an active part in the TRA conference sessions and exhibition, and will serve on the Programme, Management and Organising Committees.
The programme of TRA 2018 includes a diverse selection of research and innovation activities, ranging from application-oriented engineering, to socio-economic projects, to policies and standards. Abstracts can be submitted here until 24 April 2017.
Young researcher competition
In conjunction with the conference, TRA VISIONS 2018 invites young researchers from all over Europe to submit innovative transport concepts. The top three ideas for each mode of transport (Road, Rail, Waterborne and Cross-modality) will be selected and the final winners of the competition announced during a prestigious award ceremony at the TRA Conference. The winners will also receive monetary prizes. The deadline for a first short abstract is 30 June 2017. More information can be found here.
TRA 2018 is an arena for researchers, scientists and engineers, companies and public authorities active in the field of transport which is supported notably by the European Commission. Visit TRA website: www.traconference.eu
