The transport sector plays a strategic and major role in the European single market and in a fast changing economic and societal frame. Policies, technologies and behaviours must be continually adapted to new constraints, such as climate change, the diminishing supply of fossil energy, the economic crisis, the increased demand for mobility, safety and security, etc. Transport infrastructures, vehicles and vessels, modal share and co-modality, urban planning and energy and environment issues are the subject of extensive studies, research works and industrial innovations, conducted by universities, research institutes, companies, practitioners, and public authorities.
TRA 2014 is a unique opportunity and a multi-disciplinary and inter-agency event, to bring together all the actors and to exchange ideas about these questions. This event will contribute to the European transport competitiveness.
