Aiming to promote an ongoing research in the Smart Transportation domain towards world class achievements, the center defined a mechanism, designed to address the rapidly evolving challenges due to emerging technologies and other influential forces in the field.

Hence, we fund two main annual activities:

  1. KNOWLEDGE GAP RESEARCH – Conducted by each of the center’s Professional Committees. All reviews include recommendations for research topics within each committee's domain.
    The Knowledge Gap Research Reviews can be found HERE.
  2. ISTRC Annual CALLS FOR RESEARCH – Topics recommendations defined by the center’s Professional Committees, based on the Knowledge Gap Research and the results of the surveys conducted by the center.
    Please find below the winning proposals for each Call for Research.
Call for Research 2022-23

The ISTRC Annual Call for Research 2022-2023 Evaluation Committee has completed its assessment process.
The committee, consisting of 7 members from 5 Israeli academic institutions, managed a review process of 29 proposals conducted by 53 academic experts from Israel and abroad.
Based on the evaluation committee’s recommendation, ISTRC decided to fund 11 proposals, with a total budget of 2,500,000 NIS.

ISTRC would like to thank the members of the Call for Research 2022-2023 Evaluation Committee and to congratulate the winners. Notifications were sent to all Principal Investigators (PIs) who submitted a proposal.

The funding goes to the academic institution of the proposal’s Principal Investigator (PI).
