16th of April 2018, Vienna, Austria


TRA2018 in Vienna, Austria, is a premier EU conference on transportation technologies. It emcompasses a broad spectrum of research and innovation activities, ranging from basic research to application-oriented engineering, social, technical and economic aspects, as well as policies and standards.

TRA2018 covers all modes of transport: Road, Rail, Waterborne, Aviation, Cross-modal, not mode-specific. OSEM-EV partners used TRA2018 as an excellent platform for dissemination of the findings made during the project in a number of forms, including oral presentations in technical sessions, and poster presentations in Market Place and in EGVIA stands.

Three technical papers have been presented in the conference, and published in the conference proceeding. Two papers are co-authored by a number of OSEM-EV partners, demonstrating fruitful close collaborations within the consortium. The technical advances reported in these papers range from advanced modelling and control techniques for heat pump systems to vehicle thermal management strategies for waste heat recovery and their practical implementations.
