Special Honorary Award

TRA VISIONS 2024 Special Honorary Award

Noination Deadline Extended to 16th February

The TRA VISIONS Special Honorary Award was granted for the first time in 2022, with the aim to honour a senior personality of the transport sector, who throughout the years has made an outstanding and widely recognised contribution to research and innovation in their particular transport field (road, rail, waterborne, air, crossmodal). The winner of this Special Honorary Award has, throughout their career, demonstrated a ground-breaking and future-oriented vision and research. The award honours a senior personality of the transport sector, representing the older generation of established researchers who are about to complete, or have recently completed their career. The winner of the 2022 Special Honorary Award was Rune Elvik.

A call for nominations for the 2024 edition of the Special Honorary Award is now launched to the transport research community. Nominations can be made by single persons, groups of persons, and technology platforms. Self-nominations are excluded.

Each nomination has to include a proper justification of up to two pages long, highlighting the overall impact, visionary thinking, breakthrough achievements and track record of the nominated person, including but not limited to EU funding policy impact, publications, patent and research leadership, etc. Candidates will be accepted for all transport modes but only one final winner will be selected (irrespective of the transport mode).

Nominations need to be submitted through the dedicated application form by 16 February 2024, to be sent to Karen Vancluysen (kvancluysen@polisnetwork.eu) and Ivo Cré (icre@polisnetwork.eu).
