Young Reseachers Seminar 2017

15. May 2017 @ 16:00 - 17. May 2017 @ 17:00

Not public

The 8th Young Researchers’ Seminar will be held from May 16 – 18, 2017 in Berlin, Germany and will be hosted by the German Aerospace Center (DLR). 

The Seminar is supported by:
ECTRI (European Conference of Transport Research Institutes) www.ectri.org
FEHRL (Forum of European National Highway Research Laboratories) www.fehrl.org
FERSI (Forum of European Road Safety Research Institutes) www.fersi.org

The Young Researchers’ Seminar is organised every two years in a different European country. The common vision for the Seminar is the preparation of a new generation of transport scientists and science based professionals in the area of transport.
The objectives are:

  • To enable the networking of young transport researchers belonging to the Supporting Organizations Members, ECTRI, FEHRL, FERSI and from United States’ Universities.
  • To train young researchers, by tutorial means through a retroactive manner, to elaborate, prepare papers and present oral scientific communications.

Therefore, this Seminar is not only aimed at scientific excellence, but also at presentation skills and the ability to put science into practice.

Since 2007, thanks to the Memorandum of Understanding between ECTRI and the Transportation Research Board from the United States, participation to the Seminar has been opened to young researchers and tutors from the US Universities.

What are the topics of the Seminar?

The indicative research domains covered during this seminar are:

  • Transport economics, policy and transport behaviour
  • Transport sustainability and environment
  • Transport safety
  • Intelligent transport systems (ITS) & Traffic management
  • Transport civil and road engineering
