PLANET participated in and presented during the largest European research and technology conference on transportation and mobility.
The Transport Research Arena (TRA) is the largest European research and technology conference on transport and mobility. TRA initiated in 2006 to convey all major players within the transport industry with a focus on cutting-hedge research. The conference is sustained by well-known international actors such as – among the others: the European Commission, CEDR (Conference of European Directors of Roads), ERTRAC (European Road Trasport Research Advisory Council), ERRAC (European Rail Research Advisory Council), WATERBORNE and ALICE (Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration).
TRA is a point of reference to all players in the transport industry, especially policy makers, looking to integrate regulations with the latest research findings. This year, the TRA Conference took place in Lisbon on 14 November – 17 November at the Lisbon Congress Center (CLL).
TRA is the largest European research and technology conference on transport and mobility. Themed “Moving together – reimagining mobility worldwide”, TRA2022 brings together experts from around the world to discuss the newest innovations and future of mobility and transport, building also on the Portuguese historical legacy and links to overseas transport professionals. Through the development of innovative solutions, TRA Lisbon 2022 aimed for a more efficient, safer, carbon-free, inclusive, and sustainable transport in all its modes.
At TRA 2022 in Lisbon, you had the opportunity to learn about the PLANET project in-depth as well as the EGTN platform, a PLANET solution that aims to be an inclusive and powerful platform that can be adopted by any size of T&L actor as well as to take one step closer to the realization of the PI paradigm.
