TRA is the largest Transport Research and Innovation Conference in Europe.This biennial event brings together all the stakeholders of the transport system. It enables researchers, industries and public bodies to be closer to each other and provides a forum where they can exchange with policy makers on the challenges and opportunities the industry faces.

EC services responsible for transport research - DG RTD, DG MOVE and DG CNECT - in collaboration with INEA, are organising an information day to present the new Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020 in the area of transport research and innovation.
This Information Day will provide an overview of the Shift2Rail Research & Innovation Programme, focusing in particular on the upcoming funding opportunities under the umbrella of the Horizon 2020 Programme.
A new study points to substantial successes in each of the EIT's key areas.
The study, 'EIT: Our Impact from 2010 - 2016', analysed the global and European socio-economic impact of the EIT and its Innovation Communities between 2010 and 2016. With existing reviews mostly focusing on results and efficiency, the study sets out to look beyond those results and structure the achievements of the EIT Community in terms of impact.
Today, the EIT has published the Framework of Guidance for the EIT’s 2018 Call for Proposals.
To further enhance its impact and to incentivise the innovations needed to meet societal challenges, we’re continuing to expand our activities in 2018 by launching a call for two new Knowledge and Innovation Communities:
- EIT Manufacturing: strengthening and increasing the competitiveness of Europe’s manufacturing industry
- EIT Urban Mobility: smart, green and integrated urban transport
The European Commission has launched the first of six European Innovation Council (EIC) Horizon Prizes, on Affordable High-Tech for Humanitarian Aid. EIC Horizon Prizes are part of the European Innovation Council pilot run under Horizon 2020, the EU's Research and Innovation Framework Programme.
EGVIA and ERTRAC, supported by the European Commission, are organising this European-wide conference to showcase the results of selected H2020 funded projects on road transport related areas.
Various technological challenges will be covered in order to highlight the contribution of ongoing EU-funded research projects to meet EU policy goals.
