ECTRI, the European Conference of Transport Research Institutes, is an international non-profit organisation that was founded in April 2003. Its members are 26 major transport research institutes or universities from 19 European countries. Together, they account for more than 4000 European scientific and research staff in the field of transport.

ECTRI's aim is to help build the "European Research Area" (ERA) in transport by cooperation in thematic and process oriented thematic groups, task forces, Framework Programme projects, seminars and conferences.
