Are you a transport innovator? Have you carried out highly impactful research funded by the EU? If so then you could be eligible for the TRA VISIONS senior researcher competition (previously called EU Champions of Research Competition).
Cutting edge transport research has a profound effect both on our lives and the world we experience, changing the way we travel, consume and interact with each other.
TRA 2018 will feature the third edition of this Senior Researcher Competition. This competition recognises and celebrates leading researchers who are or have recently been contributing to surface transport EU-funded projects. Successful candidates will have to demonstrate excellence and prove impacts in their field of research.
This competition will provide a platform to further disseminate knowledge and results from research projects in surface transport, promoting future synergies and the further development of innovative ideas in line with the strategic objectives of the TRA stakeholders.
The Senior Researcher competition will act as a showcase for the very best EU-funded research and encourage the identification of current and future leaders in the field, thus contributing to building a vibrant community of transport researchers working in the different modes in Europe.
The competition will be promoted through the stakeholders in the consortium, national contact points, targeted contact coordinators, participants in EU-funded transport projects and the TRA conference itself.
Participants will be asked to submit a paper by September 2017.
You can register your details by selecting the link “Register as a senior researcher” and completing the registration form that is found there.
