TRA Visions 2020 for Young and Senior Researchers Awarded

The main activity of TRA VISIONS 2020, a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Framework Programme, is the development and implementation of two competitions. One is directed towards young researchers and the second towards senior researchers involved in EU projects. They take place every two years together with the TRA, the most important European conference on transport. TRA VISIONS 2020 invited young and senior researchers from all over Europe to submit their innovative ideas related to different transport modes (road, rail, airborne, waterborne and cross-modal).

The Young Researcher TRA Visions 2020 Award

ERTRAC sponsored the road mode award and it was given to 

  • Pier Giuseppe Anselma, Claudio Maino, Alessia Musa from Politecnico di Torino (1st place: “THEO: a tailored hybrid emission optimizer for the drivers of tomorrow”),
  • Milan Tešic from University of Belgrade (2nd place: “Star rating Road Safety Performances and Identifying the most significant Road Safety Indicators of a Territory”) and
  • Ahmed Ayadi, Jakob Pfeiffer and Mohamed Ali Razouane from Technical University of Munich (3rd place: “Self-Learning Enhancement of Measurement Quality with Artificial Intelligence”).

Congratulations to them!
