Mr Janne Huhtamäki, the Chair of the Management Committee for TRA2020, is excited about the possibilities TRA2020 will offer for displaying European research and innovation:
“Transport is undergoing a massive change that covers every aspect of the mobility of people and goods: from traveling and commuting to sustaining the value proposition of transport assets and taking measures against climate change. TRA2020 offers the momentum to rethink together how to deliver what the users and the planet are calling for.”
