The previous Transport Research Knowledge Centre (TRKC) of the European Union is maintained and extended in the TRIP project. TRIP is the European Union's portal for providing access to transport research projects - particularly EU funded projects, but also research projects by EU member states, EU neighbouring countries and a selected number of other countries. Besides the Internet platform containing information on finished and ongoing research projects, TRIP embraces a compilation of 'Thematic Research Summaries' - which give an overview of research carried out within a certain area -, and the production of 'Policy Brochures', in which policy fields are related to the outcomes of research projects. These publications are elaborated through participation of members of the TRIP Support Network. The project is accompanied by extensive dissemination activities.
KIT is the coordinator of the content related work, among others dealing with the drafting of Policy Brochures and Thematic Research Summaries. Moreover, KIT takes part in the process of collecting information on national transport research programmes.
