TRB 86th Annual Meeting

Washington, D.C., USA – January 21-25 2007

ECTRI attended the Transport Research Board 2007. The TRB Annual Meeting programme covered all transportation modes, with more than 2,800 presentations in 500 sessions addressing topics of interest to all attendees policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry and academic institutions. The spotlight theme for 2007 was “Transportation Institutions, Finance, and Workforce: Meeting the Needs of the 21st Century”. TRB had organised the first ECTRI/TRB International Research Roundtable to commemorate the anniversary of the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding and invited ECTRI members to participate in the International Reception.

The TRB exhibition was an extension of the Annual Meeting educational programme. Located at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, the exhibits complemented the formal sessions and provided a variety of opportunities for information sharing and interaction. ECTRI hired a booth at the exhibition where both information on our members and activities related to transport research were available through leaflets and brochures. This occasion also gave the opportunity of meeting the ECTRI staff.
