We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Transport Research Arena (TRA) is the foremost European transport event that covers all transport modes and all aspects of mobility. TRA offers a great venue for researchers, policy makers and industry representatives to get together and contribute to the discussion on how research and innovation can re-shape the transport and mobility system. The conference provides a unique opportunity to hear about mobility trends in different parts of Europe, learn from achievements in industry as well as share best practices of policies and deployments.
The next edition of this biennial event will be held in Helsinki on the 27-30 of April in 2020. TRA2020 is organised by the Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications, Finnish Transport and Communications Agency, Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency and the European Commission. The JRC plays a major role in both the programme committee and the exhibition organisation.
Under the theme “Rethinking transport – towards clean and inclusive mobility” the TRA2020 will focus on rethinking how research, development, and innovations can deliver what users and the planet are calling for. This transformation process that the transport sector is imperatively undergoing, concerns every single aspect of the mobility of passengers and goods. It starts from the way we book our journeys and goes all the way to the value proposition of transport infrastructures. This transformation is enabled and fuelled by digital and automation technologies, helping us to forge measures to mitigate climate change and to safeguard European jobs and know-how.
The scientific and technical sessions will comprise of research papers, the best of which will be published in peer-reviewed journals. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Please see the Call for submissions for full information and guidelines.
