TRA Visions: Organising Transport Research Awards for the TRA2014 conference
TRA Visions is a European Commission FP7 project which is organising the following two competitions for transport research awards to be announced at the TRA conference on 15-18th April 2014 in Paris, France (see www.traconference.eu):
Both will cover all surface transport modes (road, rail and waterborne), including Infrastructure
Similarly, the EU Champions of Research competition will promote and acknowledge the leaders in generating impactful research in transport in the EU. The project features partners from all the relevant stakeholder organisations and will build on the success of the FP7-funded Young European Arena of Research (YEAR) competitions at TRA in 2008, 2010 and 2012, as well as the VISIONS (FP6) and VISIONS OLYMPICS (FP7) competitions. Together they captured the imagination of more than 1,500 students around Europe, and TRA Visions aim to develop this even further by including the new competition for senior researchers.
The participants will then have a three-month period to further develop their proposal into a final project. This will be followed by an Evaluation of Ideas period, during which a judging panel will determine the top three ideas per mode (including cross-modality). The certificates and prizes will be awarded to the winners at TRA 2014.
SENIOR RESEARCHER COMPETITION
More details on each competition are set to be announced shortly. For more information, see www.travisions.eu.
