Transport Research Arena (TRA): Innovative solutions for tomorrow’s mobility

Efficient mobility is a key issue for policy makers. Enabling the free movement of people and goods is crucial to economic prosperity and quality of life. TRA2016 Conference will contribute to innovation in sustainable mobility for Europe, by bringing together all the stakeholders of the transport system. Sustainable mobility of people and goods can only be achieved by a close co-operation between research and industry. The synergy between these two fields of activity is an asset that has to be wisely used for the benefit of our citizens. TRA 2016 gets science, research and industry closer to each other and points out challenges and opportunities they can efficiently face together.














The scope of the conference covers all modes of surface transport: road, rail and waterborne, as well as co-modality, applied to both passenger and freight, in urban, inter-urban and long distance settings.


Airports are integrated for their contribution to the transport systems.
