The Transport Research Awards offer accolades for young and senior researchers across 5 categories, plus an honorary award
TRA 2024 (Transport Research Arena) will take place in Dublin, Ireland from the 15th – 18th of April and is the foremost European transport event covering all transport modes and aspects of mobility. The winners of two the two TRA Visions competitions will be announced at the 2024 event, along with an honorary awardee. The registrations are divided as follows:
The TRA VISIONS 2024 young researcher competition: A young researcher competition seeking to stimulate interest among young researchers and students in sustainable transport. The registration period will be open until 30/06/2023.
The TRA VISIONS 2024 senior researcher competition: A competition for senior researchers in the field of innovative transport concepts based on results only from EU-funded projects. The deadline for entry is 14th September 2023 23:59 CEST.
In addition to the above, a “special honorary award” will honoring a “very” senior researcher who is about to complete or has already completed their career, and who has through the years made an outstanding and well-recognized contribution to transport-related research and innovation in their respective field.
The organization explains,
“Both competitions cover all transport modes (road, rail, waterborne, airborne 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.”
The competitions are divided into five categories, each per transport mode, with participants being able to choose which of the ways they will submit their project:
Road, Rail, Waterborne, Airborne, Cross-Modality
