TRKC draws interest with TRA2010 workshop on “Accessing Transport Research Information”


An audience of some 50 participants attended the workshop on "Accessing transport research information" organised by the Transport Research Knowledge Centre (TRKC) at the Transport Research Arena 2010 on Wednesday 9 June.Four databases - TRKC, ELTIS, Press4Transport and ENTrada - presented themselves, as well as the forthcoming database on transport research programming from the ERA-Net initiative.Following a lively debate that overan the session’s scheduled time-slot, the workshop concluded that the main problem is the scattered landscape of numerous transport research databases and portals. This should be tackled, as the major barrier facing all databases is the difficulty in finding and accessing information sources, as well as the question of trustworthiness of the sources.
