Transport Research Arena (TRA 2024)


On April 15th-18th, VOLTCAR is attending the TRA 2024 in Dublin, Ireland.

The Transport Research Arena (TRA) is Europe’s biggest Transport Research Conference. It was initiated in 2006 and takes place every two years in a different European city.

Hosted by the Irish Department of Transport and organised by TTI (Transport Infrastructures Ireland), University College Dublin (UCD), Enterprise Ireland and CPI (Conference Partners International), the theme of #TRA2024 is Transport Transitions: Advancing Sustainable and Inclusive Mobility.

Our project coordinator Jenni Pippuri-Mäkeläinen of VTT will give a presentation on VOLTCAR and Creating highly compact and efficient traction motors with less rare earth materials and more circularity on April 16th.

The Conference is co-organised by the European Commission with the support of the following platforms and networks: ACARE (Advisory Council for Aviation Research and Innovation in Europe), ALICE (Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration), CEDR (Conference of European Directors of Roads), ECTP (The European Construction Technology Platform), ERRAC (European Rail Research Advisory Council), ERTRAC (European Road Transport Research Advisory Council), ETRA (European Transport Research Alliance) and WATERBORNE (European research and innovation platform for waterborne industries).

TRA2024 will aim to address the main challenges in the transport and mobility of people and goods, concerning energy, environment, safety, security and socio-economic issues.
