Young European Arena of Research 2012 Students have the chance to submit an abstract to YEAR2012 and become a finalist in TRA2012 in Athens


The Young European Arena of Research 2012 is a competition for early-stage researchers who are doing research in the area of all surface transport modes: road, rail and waterborne. Previously held in Slovenia and Belgium, the competition gives PhD students all over Europe an opportunity to showcase their work to experts within the field, both on the web, and for the best applicants, at the Transport Research Arena (TRA2012) conference in Athens in April 2012.

Students are asked to submit an abstract on-line under one of the YEAR2012 scientific pillars, or the additional pillar of Future Visions of Transport. To see a list of all 6 pillars, please click on the link given below. This collection of submitted abstracts is hosted online on the YEAR2012 website and represents a showcase of European research and is open for viewing by all those interested in the field. All abstracts will go through an online judging review, after which the top 30 finalists will be invited to attend the TRA2012 Conference in Athens to display their research in an exhibition space. The 30 finalists will be judged a second time at the conference and the winner for each of the pillars will be announced and presented during the conference, for an expected 1,500 delegates to observe. The deadline for abstract submission is October 15, 2011.
