Infrastructure Research and Policy Training (InfraTrain Autumn School)
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.
Participants are offered alternative training sessions with a small number of participants. 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), Jens Weibezahn (TU Berlin), and Nicole Wägner (DIW Berlin)
