Welcome from the Chair

Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the International Conference on Sustainable Transport – SUTRA 2022!

The conference is organized jointly by the University of Rijeka, Faculty of Maritime Studies, Croatia and University North, Croatia.

Globalization brings new challenges in transport of goods and passengers. In order to cope with the rising demand for transportation of every kind, special attention must be paid to ensure the sustainability of the modern transport. SUTRA conference is focused on multidisciplinary research and development, as well as operational experiences, all with the aim to discuss optimal scientific and engineering solutions to reduce the negative environmental impact of transportation systems. This must inevitably be done by interdisciplinary approach and taking into consideration different means of transport: maritime, rail, road and air services, as well as inland waterways. The variety of topics covered by the SUTRA conference reflects the complex interaction of the transport systems with their environment. SUTRA conference is intended to gather together academia, business and administration, all key stakeholders in ensuring the sustainability of the transport.

SUTRA is going to be held in the beautiful city of Opatija, Croatia. Opatija, a magnificent coastal town on the Adriatic Sea and a well-known 19th-century health resort, is today a popular holiday destination for tourists from all over the world. A mild and pleasant climate makes Opatija a perfect destination all year long. The town is surrounded by stunning nature. It is located at the foot of Mount Učka, a popular destination for hikers and excursionists and a boundary between the green Istrian peninsula and the littoral region which features a perfect harmony of varied landscapes. The town of Opatija offers a beautiful view of the sea and the nearby islands of Krk and Cres, which can easily be visited by car or ferry. Opatija is surrounded by charming small towns characterised by narrow streets and a rich history. It can easily be reached from airports in Rijeka (40 km), Pula (100 km), Trieste (105 km), Ljubljana (130 km) Zagreb (180 km) or Venice (215 km).

Putting European Mobility on Track for a Sustainable Future

Ms. Maja Bakran Marcich, Deputy Director General, Directorate General for Mobility and Transport of the European Commission

To support the transition to cleaner, greener, and smarter mobility, in line with the objectives of the European Green Deal the Commission has prepared a number of proposals to modernise the EU’s transport system, also within the Fit for 55 package. By increasing connectivity and shifting more passengers and freight to rail and inland waterways, by supporting the roll-out of charging points, alternative refuelling infrastructure, and new digital technologies, by placing a stronger focus on sustainable urban mobility, and by making it easier to choose different transport options in an efficient multimodal transport system, the aim is to put the transport sector on track to cutting its emissions by 90%.
