Relaunch of the Transport Research Knowledge Centre
New website helps European transport community to find transport research solutions
The Transport Research Knowledge Centre (TRKC) has relaunched its web portal www.transport-research.info – with a dynamic new look, improved navigation and user-friendly structure.
The Transport Research Knowledge Centre features up-to-date information on transport research activities. It enables policy makers, researchers and other stakeholders to access results of EU or nationally financed transport research in the European Research Area (ERA).
Visitors can easily browse and search information about:
• Transport research programmes across the European Research Area;
• Ongoing and completed European and national transport research projects;
• European and national research funding mechanisms;
• Thematic analysis reports;
• Policy brochures;
• Major events in the international transport community.
Users also have quick and easy access to a link library listing transport research government institutions, professional organisations, information relays or fora. Using TRKC’s data collection tool, project coordinators can submit descriptions and results of their own projects.
Enhancements to the website include:
• Improved navigation – the website and the search tools are structured in an intuitive and consistent way, making it easier for visitors to find what they are looking for and know where they are within the web site;
• Improved look and feel – enhanced graphics and new page layouts provide visitors with an improved user experience.
The Transport Research Knowledge Centre will be present at the Transport Research Arena 2008, on April 21-24, in Ljubljana – Slovenia. Participants are welcomed to visit our stand for a personal introduction to the new TRKC website.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
