Transport Research Arena (TRA2020) 

Rethinking transport - towards clean and inclusive mobility


We invite researchers to submit their paper for the biggest European Research and Technology Conference on transport and mobility.

Conference track papers in their final form should not be
longer than 10 pages. In the first phase, only short papers of appr. 2-4
pages are submitted. Conference papers will be peer
reviewed, accounting for research scope, significance of
contribution, novelty, and readability. All papers accepted
within the Conference Track will be included in the open
access conference proceedings.


Transport Research Arena (TRA) is the foremost European
transport event that covers all transport modes and all
aspects of mobility. The next edition of this biennial event will
be held in Helsinki on the 27-30 of April in 2020. TRA2020
is organised by the Finnish Ministry of Transport and
Communications, Finnish Transport and Communications
Agency, Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency, the
European Commission, Business Finland and VTT
Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd.

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 mobility system. The
conference provides a unique opportunity to hear about
mobility trends in different parts of Europe, learn from
achievements in industry as well as share best practices
of policies and deployments. TRA attendees will also get
to know about Finland’s silo-breaking re-regulation of
the entire transport sector that enables trials, pilots and
innovation actions. This context facilitates an exciting
TRA2020 in Helsinki.

Conference topics

The conference will cover the whole spectrum of
challenges and opportunities faced by our mobility. The
conference will address all modes and components of the
mobility system; passenger and freight transport as well
as cross-modality, intermodality and modal redistribution.
The selected topical structure facilitates especially
cross-disciplinary and innovative research works with
systemic approaches. However, applied and practice-
oriented works are also welcome. The conference theme
“Rethinking Transport – towards clean and inclusive
mobility” will frame, but not limit, the conference topical
coverage. The TRA2020 priority topics are tagged as
follows, highlighting the perspective of rethinking:

1. Climate change, mitigation & resilience
2. Digitalisation, digital safety & cyber-security
3. Automation & robotisation
4. Electrification, energy & power alternatives
5. User-focused mobility services, servitisation
6. Social change & quality of life
7. Technology & engineering
8. Planning, modelling & system design
9. Policy & regulation, market efficiency, competitiveness
10. Transport safety & security
11. Investments, finance & public-private partnerships
12. Innovation & human capital

Submission procedure

A short conference paper consists of 2 – 4 pages, and as approved, entitles you to a reduced admission fee at the TRA2020. Submit your work here: https://tra2020.exordo.com/login
