TRA Visions 2014 EU Champions of Transport Research

TRA Visions is an FP7 funded set of competitions for excellence in surface transport. In 2013/2014 there are two competitions – one for students and one for senior researchers. TRA Visions is tied to the TRA conference, and the awards will be presented at the conference in Paris in April 2014.

The project is led by WEGEMT, with BALance, EURNEX, AVL, UIC, CESA, Fraunhofer, FEHRL, UCD and IFSTTAR as partners. UCD GRG is an academic contributor to both competitions, and leading the senior researchers competition.

EU Champions of Transport Research is a competition for senior researchers, whose research in surface transport has been funded by the EU. Candidates submit an impact statement showing how their research has impacted on the scientific development of their field, or in broader public, economic and societal ways.
