Two TRA VISIONS 2020 competitions launch in December 2018

TRA VISIONS 2020 invites Young and Senior researchers from all over Europe to submit innovative transport concepts the TRA VISIONS 2020 competitions which will be launched in December 2020.

The European-funded competition TRA VISIONS 2020 has just started. Young and senior researchers throughout Europe are invited to submit innovative concepts on future transport matters in order to enhance efficient and sustainable transport and mobility of people and goods.

Ever more people and goods are moving around the world in constantly shorter timeframes. This makes innovative transport solutions an important necessity. What could future transport look like? How can existing systems and infrastructure cope with the rising strain, be it road, rail, waterborne or cross-modal transport systems? Which are efficient and sustainable solutions to the arising questions on mobility issues?

TRA VISIONS takes place every two years and awards both a prize for innovative concepts for transport solutions for young researchers and senior researchers in European funded projects throughout Europe. The project consortium members responsible for organising the competition are:

WEGEMT
BALance Technology Consulting
Deep Blue
CERTH HIT
VTI
UCL
FEHRL
ECTRI
VTT

The award ceremony takes place during the TRA conference, which is held every two years and aims at getting science, research and industry closer together and pointing out challenges and opportunities they can efficiently face together in order to create an efficient and sustainable mobility of people and goods. The awards for TRA VISIONS 2020 competition will take place during the TRA 2020 conference which is scheduled to happen in April 2020 in Helsinki Finland.
