The next Young Researchers Seminar, YRS15, an event jointly supported by ECTRI, FEHRL and FERSI, is organised next year by “Sapienza” University of Rome, Italy, Centro di ricerca per il Trasporto e la Logistica (CTL) on June 17-19, 2015.  
The objectives of the Seminar are:
- To enable the networking of young transport researchers belonging to the Supporting Organizations Members, ECTRI, FEHRL, FERSI and from TRB.
- To provide training to the young researchers, by tutorial means through a retroactive manner, to elaborate, prepare papers and present oral scientific communications.
Therefore, this conference is not only aimed at scientific excellence, but also at presentation skills and the ability to put science into practice.
The indicative research domains are:
- Transport economics, policy and transport behaviour
- Transport sustainability and environment
- Transport safety
- Intelligent transport systems - ITS & Traffic
- Transport civil and road engineering
Abstracts and Tutor nomination can be sent by the 10th of October 2014. For more information, see the link below.


DECOMOBIL Final Workshop

Human Centred Design for Safery Critical Transport Systems

September 8th 2014
ISG / Business & Economics School
Lisbon, Portugal

DECOMOBIL is a European project under FP7 which started on 1st October 2011 and will end on 30 September 2014 (

DECOMOBIL is a support action with the objective to contribute to the preparation of future community research program me in user-centred design for eco-multimodal mobility. The general concept of the DECOMOBIL project has been to take advantage of the structured network of research set up in the HUMANIST Network of Excellence and followed up in the HUMANIST Virtual Centre of Excellence, in order to develop knowledge in the area of human centred design of ICT for sustainable transport and to widely disseminate results of these activities towards relevant stakeholders at European and international level.
