The Young Researchers Seminar 2015 was successfully held from the 17th until the 19th of June 2015 in Rome, at the “Sapienza” University of Rome. The seminar was hosted by FERSI member Research Centre for Transport and Logistics. On behalf of FERSI I would like to express a gratitude to CTL Director, Prof. Luca Persia and to his team for enabling us to work in a very pleasant atmosphere.
The Young Researchers Seminar is sponsored and organized by ECTRI, FEHRL and FERSI since 2005. The seminar offers to young road transport researchers from Europe and USA (via TRB) an opportunity to present results of their research and to learn effective presentation and communication techniques. Besides, the seminar serves as an excellent networking platform for road transport research young professionals.
Young researchers prepare their presentations with a help of experienced tutors from sponsoring organizations.
We congratulate Ms. Veronica Kureckova from CDV (Czech Republic) who has made the best presentation and received the first award. Ms. Kureckova’s presentation was a sample of presenting results of scientific research professionally and clearly, briefly and attractively for an audience.
We congratulate the winners of the second award shared this year by three researchers:
Gaby Gurczik, DLR (Germany)
André Paixao, LNEC (Portugal)
José Ramalho, Polito (Italy)
All award winners managed to convince the audience with their dedication, inspiration and profound knowledge.
Looking forward to meeting (not only young) FERSI colleagues at the next Young Researchers Seminar, that will take place 2017 in Germany.
