Autumn School 2014
INFRATRAIN is a series of events in INFRAstructure research and policy TRAINing designed for graduate scholars, practitioners, and policy makers. They are designed to promote the training of graduate scholars (advanced Master students, PhD-students, post-docs) as well as junior practitioners and policy makers (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.
This year’s INFRATRAIN event will take place from 6 to 10 October, 2014, at TU Berlin. It is dedicated to the issue of Advanced Infrastructure Modeling: Numerical Models and Efficiency Analysis.
Participants are offered alternative training sessions with a small number of participants (for the topics of the 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, and the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin). Scientific coordinators of INFRATRAIN are Prof Dr. Christian von Hirschhausen (TU Berlin / DIW Berlin) and Dr. Friedrich Kunz (DIW Berlin).
Registration will take place October 6th, 9-10am, in room H3150 on the 3rd floor of the main building: Strasse des 17. Juni 135, 10623 Berlin.
The venue of the welcome reception will be room H3004 in the main buliding.
