[EPTS] For the 17th consecutive time the European Platform of Transport Sciences – EPTS Foundation awards a prize dedicated to young transport researchers. 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:

  1. Doctorate paper (PhD or comparable) EUR 1,000
  2. 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.

Eligible for submission are all scientific papers accomplished no longer than two years ago and which have not been submitted successfully in another award competition. Papers may be written by individuals who are citizens of a country in Europe and under fourty years of age at the time of submission. Recommendations may only be made by full professors of universities or directors of research institutions. Applications by the authors themselves will not be considered.
