Collaboration & Networking
Establishing a networking framework between TTI and the Latvian, the EU and other Research Institutes will be pursued from the very beginning of the TTI creating. R&D and knowledge and technology transfer, as well as business projects, necessarily involve cooperation and networking.
TTI pays special attention to the collaboration of scientific personnel with colleagues from others research centres and universities and as the results of this collaboration are common publications; Conferences, scientific workshop; research projects etc. And for 2016-2020 period TTI has the ambitious plan: to increase the quantity of cooperation agreements twice and establish the strong scientific alliances in main directions of TTI research activities.
First of all, the research activities aim at opening the grounds for exchanging knowledge, and combining capabilities of the participating members, exploit existing research results and invest in developing more knowledge, assuring at the same time the research sustainability.
Close collaboration with these internationally-leading counterparts in Europe will help to achieve the goals through the following activities:
- organization of young researcher's seminars and training schools;
- organization of workshops and Conference;
- enhance the educational programme for graduate (Ms Computer Science, Ms Management Information Systems, Ms Transport and Logistics) and post-graduate students;
- enabling short term scientific missions with the aim of international collaboration in preparing exploitation of research, mainly publications
- preparing common project proposals.
1) TTI is active member in ECTRI (European Conference of Transport Research Institutes) organization . It gave the possibilities to become more visible in the European research area. By participations in ECTRI thematic groups: TG Mobility; TG Freight and Logistics; TG Traffic Management, TTI participates in activities related to the thematic groups: define research topics of interest for influencing EC policies and programs; participation in EU projects; networking and scientific exchanges. Participation in ECTRI thematic groups give ability to bring out TTI interests to participate in EU research projects and to be involved in proposals initiated by ECTRI members.
2) TTI also (as whole organization or research personnel) participated in activities of next European organizations mentioned below:
- European Engineering Deans Council
- Informatics Europe
- Association of Paneuropean Coach Terminals
- European Council for Small Business and Entrepreneurship
