Support for the organisation of the TRA2026 conference

TRA, the Transport Research Arena, is the foremost European transport event that covers all transport modes and all aspects of mobility. It is the largest European research and technology conference on transport and mobility. In 2026, TRA takes place in Budapest, Hungary from May 18 – 21.

The TRA2026 project aims to support the organisation of the TRA conference in Budapest in 2026 and deliver the related competitions.
This proposal aligns with the specified criteria of the call, namely:

It addresses the expected outcomes, including enhanced visibility of the transport sector, contributions to advancing knowledge, improved cooperation opportunities, as well as increased attractiveness of transport-related studies, as well as recognition of outstanding achievements in this field.

It features a partnership representing the host country and city authorities, as well as the academic and professional realm, with a strong international reach. The proposal involves partners with experience across all transport modes and cross-modal themes, as well as in organising past TRA conferences and researcher competitions. A member state responsible for the Council of the European Union in 2026 is also represented in the consortium.

The partners will work together and with relevant stakeholders, drawing on the traditions of previous TRA editions to bring together key actors in the transport sector to find joint solutions for current and upcoming transport-related challenges.
