The objective of the conference is to mobilise researchers, practitioners, academia, industry, education and end-users in order to find and implement innovative solutions for all surface modes rail, road, walking and cycling, and cross modal transports.
Investing in transport research and innovation would help address the main challenges in transport and mobility of people and goods, with respect to energy, environment, safety and security and economy issues.
How can R&I support the European transport industry and maintain its global leadership? What will the next generation of innovative transport means be? Which novel concepts and designs? What smart control systems and efficient production processes? These are just some questions TRA2014 will answer next Spring in Paris.
This edition of TRA will be hosted for the first time together with associated events and joint conferences, offering new perspectives on several topics and increasing the networking with International stakeholders.
A special attention will be paid to the publication of the selected papers, both to recognise the academic research works and to disseminate knowledge and best practices to the final users.
