On May 17 in Leipzig, ECTRI renewed its Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with TRB, in the presence of Neil Pedersen, TRB Executive Director and Evangelos Bekiaris, ECTRI President.
This MoU supersedes the one signed in 2017 and reiterates the mutual objectives to foster progress in transport research activities and facilitate greater synergies for information exchange and cooperation that was set in 2006, when the first MoU was signed.
The MoU is implemented via an Annual action-plan to achieve one or more of the following objectives:
- enhance an exchange of information on national and international research projects,
- facilitate regular contacts between European and American researchers in the field of transport,
- cooperate in the preparation of the next generation of transport researchers in Europe and the US, and
- exchange experiences concerning the management of transport research.
ECTRI is looking forward to continuing this successful cooperation.
