About TRA 2024 and Logistics Innovation Village

The Transport Research Arena (TRA) will take place in Dublin, Ireland from the 15th – 18th of April. With more than 3000 expected participants, TRA is Europe’s key conference for transport research and innovation.

ALICE aims to support the freight transport and logistics innovation ecosystem to be visible and showcased within the TRA 2024 exhibition through the Logistics Innovation Village. Together with 10-14 projects and initiates we will create a collaborative space enabling multiple opportunities for knowledge gathering, sharing, dissemination, outreach and networking to a wide range of stakeholders. Join us in this venture!

We build this based on our success at TRA 2022 in Lisbon. With 16 innovation projects and initiatives involved, the Logistics Innovation Village was the second biggest stand that was full of visitors and activities!

A core element of every TRA conference is the Conference Exhibition, and TRA2024 will provide a large space for stakeholders and companies to showcase their work. The exhibition offers superb networking opportunities.
