Transport Research Arena (TRA) is a European conference first established in 2006.<ref>http://ec.europa.eu/research/transport/news/items/_tra_2006__major_road_transport_conference_marks_new_era_en.htm</ref>

TRA is now the major surface transport conference in Europe and supported by the European Commission, the European Technology Platforms for Road, Rail and Water (ERTRAC, ERRAC and Waterborne respectively) and the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR). TRA takes place every two years.<ref>http://www.polisnetwork.eu/publicnews/17/48/Transport-Research-Arena-2012</ref>

The transport sector plays a strategic and major role in the European single market and in a fast changing economic and societal frame. Policies, technologies and behaviours must be continually adapted to new constraints, such as climate change, the diminishing supply of fossil energy, the economic crisis, the increased demand for mobility, safety and security, etc. Transport infrastructures, vehicles and vessels, modal share, co-modality, urban planning, energy and environment issues are the subject of extensive studies, research works and industrial innovations, conducted by universities, research institutes, companies, practitioners, and public authorities.

The conference topics address the main challenges in transport and mobility of people and goods, with respect to energy, environment, safety and security and socio-economic issues. TRA aims at exploring the most advanced research works and innovations, the latest technological and industrial developments and implementations, and innovative policies, in Europe and worldwide. As a wide forum open to all interested parties, it is a unique occasion to promote and improve efficiency in transport.
