This award is made to any organisation or group of organisations that has implemented innovative, science-based practice to improve the sustainability of elements of Australia’s and/or New Zealand’s transportation infrastructure. For the purposes of this award, sustainability can be interpreted in its broadest sense; environmental, economic, social (including safety and security) or any combination thereof.
Reseach Rising Star Award
This award is made to an Australia or New Zealand based researcher under 35 years of age, who has made significant progress in tackling a transportation related problem in the previous 12 months as part of their research activities. Nominees must be able to identify – when they are part of a research team – their specific contribution in the progress made.
It is now more important than ever to recognise the great work that has been done in Australia’s roads, transport and mobility sector during the most challenging of years.
This year's National Transport Research Awards (NTRA) will be held via a virtual awards ceremony at 10am on Thursday, November 19.
