to young scientists in European Transport Sciences
For the 5th consecutive time the European Platform of Transport Sciences
awards a prize dedicated to young transport researchers. The prize is
named “European Frie-drich-List-Prize” to honour the extraordinary
contributions of Friedrich List, a vision-ary of transport in Europe of
the 19th century, being a distinguished economist and respected
transport scientist committed to the European idea. The European
Frie-drich List prize is awarded for outstanding scientific papers in
each of the following categories:
Doctorate paper (PhD or comparable)
Diploma paper (Master Thesis or comparable)
The submitted papers should address topics in the transport field within
a European context and from a European perspective, ideally making
reference and contributing to the sustainable development of elements
and modes within pan-European or cross-border transport. The subject
should be characterized by its international scope while papers
elaborating on technical matters are equally accepted as those with a
background in economics or another discipline.
Eligible for submission are all scientific papers accomplished not
longer than two years ago and which have not been submitted in another
award competition. Papers may be submitted by individuals or a team of
authors (up to five persons), being citizens of a country in Europe and
under forty years of age at the time of submis-sion. Recommendations may
only be made by full professors of universities or direc-tors of
research institutions. Applications by the authors themselves will not
be con-sidered. The application dossier should include:
1. The full version of the paper in any European language.
2. An executive summary of five to ten A4 pages in English language.
3. A short CV of the author(s).
4. Recommendations are to be verified by the professor in a statement
written in English or German language.
Submitted papers are evaluated by a jury composed of reputable
individuals en-gaged in transport in its European dimension.
The award winning papers are published in the publications of the
European Plat-form of Transport Sciences.
Candidates are invited to submit the papers in electronic format (*pdf
or *doc) with papers exceeding 5 MB to be made available on CD ROM.
Applications may be submitted to:

Sciences, to be held in Berlin, Germany.
