TRA VISIONS 2018 Young Researcher Competition

TRA VISIONS 2018 invites Young researchers from all over Europe to submit innovative transport concepts to

The TRA VISIONS 2018 Young Researchers Competition edition is for the first time including Cross-modality as part of the scope of the awards which gives the Logistics Young Researchers community a natural opportunity to increase visibility and awareness of the importance and impact that logistics has on transport. Therefore, from ALICE we encourage participation in this competition. We would appreciate that you could further disseminate this Competition within your network and potential candidates. For more information, do not hesitate to contact the organizers of the competition reading in copy.

The deadline for a first short abstract is 30th June 2017. Following this, participants are requested to develop and submit their full idea by 30th October 2017 where they need to provide a report, a short presentation and a project poster accompanied by an optional short video.

Projects may cover design, construction, research or operations of new and innovative Transport and Logistics concepts and products. The participants should engage in further research and use their creativity, knowledge and personal effort in order to produce an innovative concept idea of high quality standards. The idea is not required to be a completely engineered “ready to build” product or service. It may also contain new technical solutions, based on solid engineering judgment and estimation of feasibility and/or business models. Finally we very much welcome the submission of existing projects you may be working on as part of your studies (final year thesis, group project etc.) as long as they are compatible with the competition rules and guidelines (

The top three ideas per transport mode (Road, Rail, Waterborne and Cross-modality) will be selected and the final winners of the competition announced during a prestigious award ceremony at the Transport Research Arena (TRA) Conference 2018 in Vienna, Austria on 16-19th April 2018. The winners will also receive monetary prizes sponsored by the Industry. Attached is also a flyer with more details.
