ECTRI at the 101st TRB Annual Meeting

This year, the Transportation Research Board (TRB) 101st Annual Meeting will be held in person from 9 to 13 of January in Washington, D.C. The focus theme for the 2022 meeting is Innovating an Equitable, Resilient, Sustainable, and Safe Transportation System.

Within the framework of the ECTRI-TRB MoU, ECTRI supports several programme activities. If you are attending TRB Annual Meeting, you are highly welcome to join the following:

  • International Coordinating Council Annual Meeting (Monday 10/01 8h00-12h00 EST) Meeting agenda

The International Coordination Council concentrates on the evolution of an international perspective, practices, and research in all facets and services of all modes of transportation. The Council brings together experts from the TRB technical committees and external organizations to collaborate on important issues affecting the safe and secure movements of goods and people in the United States and around the globe. The Council will also provide input to the Technical Activities Council and TRB leadership regarding TRB programs and activities on the behalf of the international stakeholders.

The meeting will be held in an hybrid form and participation is fully opened – more information on how to connect is available on the ICC LinkedIn group. Join us!

  • Session 1110 Towards a fair transport research agenda for a time of recovery (Monday 10/01 13h30-15h00 EST) Session Programme

The impacts of the pandemic on the transportation systems–a historical drop in transportation demand coupled with a collapse of supply chains and a surge in e-commerce deliveries–are expected to change the role of transportation in the post-pandemic world as well. Travel demand patterns, supply chains, and user behavior and expectations have changed dramatically. Decarbonization, equity, resilience, and emerging technologies are now critical issues. This workshop will explore the lessons learned from an international perspective and explore the contributions of the transportation research community in three areas: technology (e.g., electrification and automation), social issues (equity), and economics (competitiveness, supply chain, and resilience).

ECTRI proposed and organized this session that will be moderated by Susan Shaheen (UC Berkeley) and brings together an outstanding line up of speakers. If you are at TRB AM, please join!

Looking forward to seeing you !
