We are happy to announce the release of the TRIP, Transport Research & Innovation Portal!
TRIP is the new name given to the former TRKC, Transport Research Knowledge Centre. Created in 1997, the initiative currently funded by DG MOVE

research & innovation.

name, now has a new visual identity and new features to improve the services offered to its
The Portal now presents advanced and user friendly search and navigation capabilities to find
transport research projects and related information. A number of additional references have
been added to the Projects Database, including an increased number of project deliverables.
To keep you up to date on transport research & innovation activities implemented by EU
Institutions and the Research Community at large, the former TRKC services will continue:
News is displayed on the TRIP Portal, together with an Events Calendar of the key
transport conferences taking place worldwide. This information will reach you directly if you
subscribe to the monthly TRIP e-Newsletter.
TRIP gives particular attention to the contribution of research & innovation to meet relevant policy challenges in the transport field. Every year, 4 Policy Brochures will be released,
accompanied by Videos presenting the key elements of each publication.
TRIP also produces Thematic Research Summaries on a selection of
transport themes. The themes have been slightly revised compared to the previous TRKC
structure. There are now 24 themes organised into 5 categories.

new transport research activities and to the development of innovation solutions.
