TRA 2010 is an event for the alignment of the stakeholders of transport research and development. It follows previous successful editions of the conference in 2006 in Gothenburg, followed by TRA 2008 in Ljubljana. The TRA contributes to innovation for sustainable mobility in Europe, leading to a greener, safer and smarter transport system, which will be more sustainable, competitive and efficient. By enhancing the networking and clustering of Europe’s research and development capacity – based on a shared Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) and Research Framework – the TRA helps to align European, national, regional and private research and development actions on transport. The European Commission (EC) sees an opportunity for all parties involved to meet and to present, exchange and disseminate the results obtained in research and development. As such, the European Commission welcomes this TRA and strongly supports it. ERTRAC is a body of crucial importance when creating and implementing a shared European Research Framework on Road Transport. The CEDR members, being both regulating authorities and public clients and with the tools and the capacities they possess, are the important driving forces to implement the European Research Area.
