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.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
