The Research Day will be held virtually on Tuesday 11 May and Wednesday 12 May 2021 (both afternoons), under the 2012 ITF Summit theme on “Transport Innovation for Sustainable Development: Re-shaping Mobility in the Wake of Covid-19”.
This years’ Research Day will focus its scope on four specific topics, with a special session dedicated to a discussion on how transport innovation can support Covid-19 recovery.
- Seize the opportunities offered by micromobility and active transport;
- Connect remote and rural areas with innovative sustainable transport solutions;
- Stimulate adoption of low-carbon vehicle technologies;
- Use innovation to promote sustainable urban mobility in post-Covid 19 recovery.
We therefore invite the submission of abstracts of up to 1000 words that address Transport Innovation for Sustainable Development on one of the above four topics. More information here.
Abstracts submission shall be done on TRB platform: https://trb.secure-platform.com/a/page/2021_ITF_Pre-summit_Research_Day
Abstracts shall be submitted by Monday 29 March 2021 23:00 (GMT)
The ITF Pre-Summit Research Day is organised by the International Transport Forum (ITF), together with ECTRI, the US Transportation Research Board (TRB) and the World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS).
