The prize is named “European Friedrich-List-Prize” to honour the extraordinary contributions of Friedrich List, a visionary of transport in Europe of the 19th century, being a distinguished economist and respected transport scientist committed to the European idea.

The European Friedrich-List-Prize is awarded for outstanding scientific papers in each of the following categories:

    • Doctorate paper (PhD or comparable) – EUR 1,000

and

    • Diploma paper (Master Thesis or comparable) – EUR 500

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 crossborder 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.
