Since 1972 the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Transport Research Program has overseen the development of the ITRD in its mission to facilitate the sharing of published information and ongoing research in the transportation field.
Input to the ITRD database is provided by more than 20 renowned institutes and organisations from more than 23 countries in one of the four ITRD languages through the appropriate ITRD language Co-ordinating Centre.
English / American / Spanish: TRB, Washington, USA
French: IFSTTAR (Institut Français des Sciences et Technologies des Transports, de l'Aménagement et des Réseaux)
German: Bundesanstalt für Strassenwesen, Bergisch Gladbach, Germany
Over the past years 2008 – 2009, the ITRD database has been subject to a review by the Joint Transport Research Committee of OECD / International Transport Forum. The outcome of the review, completed in March 2010, was to develop a new joint product with the US Transportation Research Board (TRB) which includes the hosting of ITRD into TRB’s Transportation Research Information Services (TRIS) database, to form the TRID database.
Since January 2011, ITRD is no longer administered by TRL on behalf of OECD. The Transport Research Centre of the International Transport Forum and the OECD is administratively running the ITRD database.
The ITRD Operational Committee composed of ITRD members oversees the database and meets annually.
You don't have to be a member of ITRD to search the database - see http://trid.trb.org for details of how the database can be easily searched online via the Internet.
However being a member of ITRD does bring with it many advantages.
“It is a privilege to currently lead the work of such a long standing OECD initiative, and assist in fostering the growth in content and usage of TRID,
which continues to go from strength to strength. I also find the contacts I have through ITRD membership invaluable to my work. I regularly leverage the
expertise of ITRD members to benefit land transport research and information initiatives in Australia".
“It is great to be an ITRD member and
be part of this global network with skilled and
dedicated information professionals who add so much value to
transportation research. Together we efficiently supply
actors in this area with information and knowledge and make
their results spread and used”.
ITRD is a tool which strengthens the visibility of research materials from its member organizations and promotes the main findings on a global scale. With ITRD membership it is also possible to take part in on-going debates on topical research and political issues.
"ITRD is a much-needed tool for the professional research as well as for the innovative business developer" says JORGEN CHRISTENSEN, Chief Counsellor at the Danish Road Directorate.
