The next Young Researchers Seminar will be held in Spring 2017 and will be hosted by Deutschen Zentrums für Luft- und Raumfahrt / German Aerospace Centre (DLR) in Germany.

This seminar offers the opportunity to extend the network of young transport researchers belonging to ECTRI, FEHRL and FERSI members as well as from TRB. Moreover young researchers are able to improve their presentation skills in written and oral scientific communication by tutorial means and on a retroactive basis.

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