Transport affects day-to-day life in many areas, from consumer decisions based on the availability, or lack, of transport alternatives to societal priorities and beyond. With many facets and challenges to examine, there is a great deal of research effort and funding devoted to the field.

TRA2012 Conference will contribute to innovation in sustainable mobility for Europe, by bringing together all the stakeholders of the transport system. TRA 2012 will for the first time, deal extensively with all surface transport modes: road, rail and waterborne and underline interlinks between them.

TRA 2012

The main theme of TRA 2012 is Sustainable mobility through innovation. TRA 2012 seeks to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the transport sector and, for this reason, addresses all stakeholders in both the public and private sectors and all professionals, regardless of their roles(researchers, practitioners, designers, constructors, operators, administrators etc.).

The conference programme will be built around five different types of sessions:

  • plenary sessions, where keynote speeches will address some of the most important issues in the transport sector and the transport sector's role in future society;
  • strategic sessions, where experts and scientists from different fields will speak about topical transport issues;
  • technical sessions, where experts will address one or more of the technical topics chosen for the conference;
  • poster sessions;
  • special workshop sessions, where issues of special interest in the transport sector will be discussed.

An international trade Exhibition will be in place during the TRA 2012 Conference at the newly opened Megaron Athens International Conference Centre (Megaron AICC).

The event will be a forum for stakeholders contributing to innovation in sustainable mobility for Europe. It will bring together all surface transport modes (rail, road and waterborne (sea and inland)), with the participation of three European Technology Platforms (ETPs): the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC), the European Rail Research Advisory Council (ERRAC) and the European Technology Platform Waterborne (WATERBORNE).
