World Conference on Transport Research Society

SIG F2 – Transport, Climate Change and Clean Air

Upcoming Events

In September 2021 SIG F2 held the WCTRS Workshop on Decarbonizing the Transport Sector through Innovative Technologies. We collected several policy relevant issues, compiled them to a manuscript and transferred them to the COP26 in Glasgow. Our next event will take place during the WCTRS Conference in 2023.

Call for abstracts: International Workshop: Ambitiously decarbonizing Freight and Passenger Transport and supporting Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) Deadline 17 June 2022  Full details here

What are SIGs?

WCTRS encourages a continuous exchange between experts all over the world and in order to facilitate this exchange of ideas between researchers interested in the same topic area, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) have been created.
