Transport Research Arena 2018 — April 16-19, 2018 — Vienna, Austria
Digitisation, Automatisation and Decarbonisation are major trends that will drastically change the way we live, work and use mobility and transport in the future. Under the heading of “A digital Era for Transport”, the Transport Research Arena 2018 (TRA 2018) to be held on 16-19th April in Vienna, Austria, will explore, discuss and demonstrate these major paradigm shifts specifically directed at important areas of our life, such as transport, mobility, logistics and industrial production.
With a share of 7.7% of the GDP and an average R&D rate of 12%, the transport industry is not only vital to Austria, but is a major driving force for the whole European economy. To address the great challenges of the future mobility system, Austria has been running specific national transport related research programmes for a long time, which are effectively combined with the relevant research and technology programmes of the European Union.
