The EC's Joint Research Centre (JRC) attended the biennial Transport Research Arena (TRA) conference in Vienna to showcase the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS) and to present the first overview of the R&I projects and programmes available in the EU Transport Research & Innovation Status Assessment Report during TRA’s mobility planning session. The report, which was well received, uses information held in TRIMIS that supports the EU Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda.


The EU Science Hub stand attracted a lot of interest over the four-day conference, with visitors including European Commissioner for Mobility and Transport, Violeta Bulc; Deputy Director-General of the Research and Innovation Directorate-General of the European Commission, Signe Ratso, and a delegation of French transport stakeholders. Commissioner Bulc was keen to discuss with JRC staff the huge potential of the TRIMIS platform to analyse transport innovation.
