Transport Research Arena

The Transport Research Arena is Europe’s leading conference on transport research. Bringing together researchers, infrastructure managers, transport operators and policymakers among others, it is a key occasion for discussion of the major challenges facing Europe’s road network and dissemination of research results in this field.


The eighth TRA will be held in Helsinki on 27-30 April 2020 and is organised by the Finnish Transport Safety Agency.
