TRA is the largest Transport Research and Innovation Conference in Europe. The seventh edition of this biennial event will have as overarching theme "A Digital ERA For Transport - Solutions for Society, Economy and Environment".
The Conference brings together all the stakeholders of the transport system, bringing researchers, industries and public bodies closer to each other and providing a forum where they can exchange with policy makers on the challenges and opportunities the industry faces. The main TRA sessions fully reflect the multimodal and multidisciplinary nature of the transport sector and, for this reason, address all stakeholders regardless of mode.

The European Commission will have its own stand with the involvement of all transport-relevant services (DG RTD, DG MOVE, DG CNECT, DG JRC, ERC, INEA; EASME, etc.) presenting the results of EU-funded research and development projects.
