TRA 2024 Programme

As well as a high-level plenary session each day, we will deliver over 100 scientific and technical sessions, numerous special sessions and host round tables over the course of the conference.

In 2024, Transport Research Arena (TRA) takes place in Dublin, Ireland from Monday 15 to Thursday 18 of April. Transport Research Arena (TRA) is the foremost European transport event that covers all transport modes and all aspects of mobility.

Transport Research Arena (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 reshape 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.
