Transport Research Association for NSW (TRANSW)
What is TRANSW?
The Transport Research Association for NSW (TRANSW) is a new joint initiative of the University of Sydney, University of New South Wales (UNSW), University Technology, Sydney (UTS), and Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW). It aims to foster and support cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional transport research and practice. For more information, please visit transw.org.au. TRANSW will be launched this year and its Inaugural Symposium will be held in Sydney CBD on Thursday 15 November 2018. Please save the date!
The annual Symposium provides a platform for transport research students, academics, and practitioners to discuss relevant topics in transport. Research students will have the opportunity to showcase their research and attendees will have the opportunity to meet transport students, academics, and practitioners in an informal setting.
The Symposium will be organised each year by one of the participating universities. The Inaugural Symposium on 15 November 2018 is organised and sponsored by the University of Sydney and registration is available free of charge for researchers in transport from the three participating universities as well as for transport experts at Transport for NSW. Personal invitations will be sent by email on 15 October 2018.
