RTR Conference 2024

February 5 @ 12:00 pm - February 7 @ 2:00 pm

The highly anticipated RTR (Road Transport Research) Conference 2024 will be held from 5 to 7 February. With the expected participation of 400 attendees, this year’s event promises to be an important gateway into the realm of EU-funded projects revolutionising the landscape of road transport.

The RTR Conference has cemented its position as a premier platform, paving the way for groundbreaking advancements in road transport. This year’s agenda is designed to provide a comprehensive insight into pivotal areas crucial for the evolution of road transport. From the eco-friendly strides of Green Vehicles to the intricacies of Urban Mobility, Logistics, Intelligent Transport Systems, Safety, and the ever-evolving domain of Automated Road Transport, the conference is primed to offer a holistic perspective.

The focal point of the RTR 2024 Conference is to propose a vivid picture of the European research landscape, showcasing its forward trajectory in these vital domains. By unravelling the latest innovations and research breakthroughs of EU-funded projects, the conference aims to underline the profound benefits these advancements bring to the environment, the economy, and the overarching fabric of European society.

Several projects in which ERTICO is involved will be featured in the parallel sessions over the three-day event. Starting on Monday afternoon, from 16:30, FAME, SUNRISE and SINFONICA projects’ outcomes will be discussed during the session 6 “CCAM coordination frameworks, inclusiveness and societal impact”. On the morning of the next day at 9:30, the results of the SOLUTIONSplus project will be presented in the session 7A about “Next generation electrified vehicles for urban and suburban use” and, at the same time, in session 8A the PoDIUM project will be showcased in the “CCAM and connectivity” session. On Tuesday, starting at 10:50, an entire session will be dedicated to discussing CCAM and 5G connectivity featuring the ERTICO-led 5G-MOBIX project and sisters’ initiatives 5GCroCo and 5G Carmen. Later, the NextETRUCK project will participate in the parallel session 11 on “Medium and heavy-duty vehicles’ developments”, followed by the V4SAFETY project in session 14 “Crash protection and collision avoidance”, and the SHOW project in session 17 “CCAM on the roads”, starting at 16:15.

This annual event focusing on results from mature projects is organised by ERTRAC, the 2Zero and CCAM  Partnerships and the European Commission’s DG for Research and Innovation. It is supported by STREnGth_M (Stimulating road Transport Research in Europe and around the Globe for sustainable Mobility), an ERTRAC support action in which ERTICO is a partner.

At RTR 2024, participants can expect an immersive experience, featuring keynote addresses, panel discussions, and interactive sessions facilitated by industry experts and policymakers. This collaborative gathering will foster knowledge exchange, ideation, and collaboration, which are crucial for propelling the road transport sector into a future defined by sustainability, efficiency, and safety.
