The 2015 European Transport Conference starts in one week (28 September) in Frankfurt. Members of the TRIP team will be at the event on stand 111. The team will be demonstrating the Portal’s features and the benefits of using the portal. There will also be copies of TRIP’s thematic brochures available to take away, covering subjects such as ‘Research for a smart and competitive railway system’, ‘Smart and sustainable logistics for a competitive Europe’ and ‘Travelling safely in Europe by road, rail and water’. If you are attending the conference, make sure you stop by the TRIP stand and meet the team.
The European Transport Conference has become a valuable platform for cross discipline discussion among transport researchers, practitioners and policy-makers. This year’s conference will cover a number of major themes:
- Planning for the future
- Equity in transport
- Climate change
- Transport and emissions
Each of these areas presents important issues for sustainable transport in Europe. TRIP continues to play an important role consolidating European transport research, enabling researchers and policy-makers working in these areas to identify and build upon existing work. The TRIP database search tool identifies all the existing work within a given transport mode, sector, technology, policy area or evaluation criteria: http://www.transport-research.info/web/projects/search.cfm
