ONLY ONE WEEK TO GO! TRA 2018 "A Digital ERA For Transport - Solutions for Society, Economy and Environment"
16-19 April 2018, Vienna, Austria
European Commission's DG RTD and DG MOVE are co-organising with the Austrian Ministry for Transport and Innovation, the 7th edition of Transport Research Arena (TRA), to be held in Vienna from 16 to 19 April 2018.
TRA is the largest Transport Research and Innovation Conference in Europe.The seventh edition of this biennial event will have as overaching theme "A Digital ERA For Transport - Solutions for Society, Economy and Environment".
The Conference brings together all the stakeholders of the transport system, bringing researchers, industries and public bodies closer to each other and providing a forum where they can exchange with policy makers on the challenges and opportunities the industry faces. The main TRA sessions fully reflect the multimodal and multidisciplinary nature of the transport sector and, for this reason, address all stakeholders regardless of mode.
The four main themes of the conference will be:
- Shaping the new mobility landscape – a vision for transport & mobility for Europe
- How digitalisation is transforming transport & mobility systems
- Decarbonisation & future growth – how to change our mobility system & remain competitive
- Shaping future transport research in Europe
There will be also an important exhibition area with both static and live demonstrations on latest technology developments (e.g. on electric vehicles, batteries, automation, etc.). The European Commission will have its own stand with the involvement of all transport-relevant services (DG RTD, DG MOVE, DG CNECT, DG JRC, INEA; EASME, etc.) presenting the results of EU-funded research and development projects.
The Event will be held at:

REWARD Final event
18 April 2018, Vienna, Austria
The REWARD Project is almost completed and we are happy to announce a final stakeholder event together with the dieper project in order to show final REWARD results as well as first (dieper) results. The dieper project is almost midway.
We would like to share the REWARD innovations, the results we have achieved in both projects, and our vision for the future of diesel engines at the Transport Research Arena 2018 which will be held from 16-19 April 2018 in Vienna, Austria.
The REWARD Project The goal of REWARD is to develop advanced diesel engines that are able to respond to the demands of the future. The REWARD consortium is taking on the challenge of developing diesel powertrains and aftertreatment technologies for the next generation of cleaner passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.
As the fuel economy of Diesel engines is substantially higher than for gasoline engines, REWARD plays into this enormous improvement potential to stimulate the development and use of Diesel engines in all vehicle classes.
Scaling up neuroscience: High performance computing and modelling the brain
18 April 2018, Sofia, Bulgaria
The human brain produces, processes and transmits information in an incomparable manner. Researchers and scientists from all over the world strive to decode the mechanisms underlying this multi-layered and unique system.
The Human Brain Project is a major driving force in the field of neuroscience research in Europe, aiming to model the brain and reproduce its complexity on computing platforms.
This one-day event especially targets early career researchers and provides an overview of elements of brain modelling tools both from software and hardware perspectives.
The programme comprises several sessions where participants get ample opportunities to exchange information and knowledge with peers as well as renowned experts working in the Human Brain Project. Attendance is free, but registration is required.
Co-organised by: Human Brain Project Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Registration deadline: 9 April 2018
EIC Horizon Prize on High Tech for Humanitarian Aid - Jordan
18 April 2018, Brussels
DG RTD and DG ECHO organized a second roundtable on High Tech for Humanitarian Aid on 18 April 2018 in Amman, Jordan. This roundtable allowed Jordan stakeholders to learn more about the innovation Prize and identify local / regional humanitarian challenges that could be addressed through the frugal application of advanced technologies. The event permitted as well to enlarge the community building between humanitarian actors and technology developers in the context of the Prize.
