We are proud to share that our senior research advisor Ingrid Skogsmo is president-elect of the ECTRI organization for the two coming years. She will follow the chairmanship of Evangelos Bekiaris from the Hellenic Institute of Transport. The election was held during ECTRI’s General Assembly which met in conjunction with the Transport Research Arena (TRA) in Lisbon.

"It is a great honor and I’m grateful for the confidence the ECTRI members have in me leading the organization for the next couple of years. I’m very much looking forward to continuing to develop ECTRI’s position as a well-respected voice for the European transport researchers, and to further stimulate the members’ collaboration in project creation", says Ingrid Skogmo.
