InfraTrain Autumn School 2008
Welcome to the Website of INFRATRAIN, a Series of Events in Applied INFRAstructure Research and Policy TRAINing, designed to promote the training of junior researchers like PhD-students, post-docs, and young professionals from ministries, regulatory agencies and the private sector.
INFRATRAIN is designed as a forum for exchanging ideas of established research and work in progress, whereas the mutual development of new ideas by on-site communication is also seen as a major objective. Thereby INFRATRAIN covers the theoretical and applied topics most relevant for modern European infrastructure policy.
The eighth INFRATRAIN event will take place from October 6 to 11, 2008 on the premises of TU Berlin. It is dedicated to the issue of Infrastructure Modeling: Transport, Energy and Institutions.
Participants are offered alternative training sessions with a small number of participants (for the topics of training sessions click here ). Beside that, attendees can present their own research work in seminars. Keynote lectures of high level researchers complete the program.
INFRATRAIN is coordinated by the Workgroup for Economic and Infrastructure Policy (WIP) at TU Berlin. Scientific coordinators of INFRATRAIN are Prof. Dr. Georg Meran (Vice President of DIW Berlin / TU Berlin) and Prof Dr. Christian von Hirschhausen (TU Dresden / DIW Berlin).
