Programme overview

Window reflections

Transport as we know it is undergoing a massive transformation, which covers every single aspect of mobility of passengers as well as logistical chains. It starts from the way we book our journeys to the value proposition of transport assets, enabled and fuelled by digital technologies, contributing towards measures against climate change and increased European competitiveness.

TRA2020 offers an excellent arena to rethink together how we can navigate the wave of digitalisation and respond to the demands.

For four days, Transport Research Arena 2020 will gather over 3,000 decision-makers from the research, business and public sector to discuss the latest research and innovation in the field of transport and mobility. The conference visitors will be catered with over 100 sessions ranging from plenaries and strategic sessions up to technical and scientific sessions. The spectrum of formats is extensive: panels, workshops, traditional sessions, interactive sessions – unconventional and innovative formats will also be endorsed.
