European Transport Research Review brings you a topical collection that comprises a selection of papers from the 50th European Transport Conference, held in Milan, on 7-9 September 2022.

The European Transport Conference (ETC) is the annual conference of the Association for European Transport (AET), attracting transport policy makers, practitioners and researchers from all over Europe and beyond. After two years of online conferences, ETC was re-established as an in-person event for the celebration of its golden jubilee, welcoming almost 600 delegates from 27 countries. ETC 2022 continued the tradition of being a place for open-minded and out-of-the-box discussion of ideas and solutions for the future of transport.
