The Transport Research Arena (TRA) is the biggest European Research and Technology Conference on transport and mobility, which takes place every two years. TRA offers a great venue for researchers, policy makers and industry representatives to get together and contribute to the discussion on how research and innovation can re-shape the transport and mobility system.

The first edition took place back in 2006. The European Commission is the co-organiser of TRA 2022 together with the Portuguese host.
TRA is a truly multimodal transport conference covering all transport modes (road, rail, waterborne, air transport) and it is directly supported by several European Technology Platforms (ERTRAC, ERRAC, WATERBORNE TP, ALICE, ECTP, ACARE) and associations like ETRA (European Transport Research Alliance) and CEDR (Conference of European Road Directors).
There are different sessions - Plenary, Strategic and Invited Sessions and Technical/Scientific ones - and an important exhibition with an EC stand, an interactive zone and live demonstrations.
