The concept of TRA VISIONS project
is to organize two competitions for transport research awards to be announced at the TRA conference in 2018: The TRA VISIONS 2018 YOUNG RESEARCHER COMPETITION,
an academic student competition with the goal of stimulating the interest among young researchers and students in the field of sustainable surface transport. The TRA VISIONS 2018 SENIOR RESEARCHER COMPETITION,
a competition for senior researchers in the field of innovative surface transport concepts based on results only from EU-funded projects.
Both competitions cover all surface transport modes (road, rail, waterborne and cross modality) in line with the EC policy objectives for smart, green and integrated transport. The S&T objectives are to nurture the best transport researchers in Europe, promote the alignment of their interests with those of transport stakeholders, encourage them to participate in the conference and celebrate their achievements. The process is two-way: students are inspired by the presentations at the main conference and mature researchers are inspired by the research and vision of the young. TRA VISIONS 2018 competition
