2ND TRAIL/BETA CONGRESS, Tuesday 17 November 2015

Location: Het Muntgebouw, Utrecht


Based on many positive reactions we received earlier, TRAIL and Beta are organising a 2nd TRAIL/Beta PhD conference.

The aim of this conference is to give PhD students the opportunity to present and discuss their ongoing or finished work informally with colleagues from the universities, exploring joint interests and planning for any future joint work/publications, through parallel sessions and a poster market.

In addition we plan to organise tutorials/workshops like: How to defend your thesis, What’s next after your PhD?, Scientific Integrity, (Poster) presentation tips & tricks and Working Together with industry during your PhD in the morning (final program will be set ASAP).

In short, an attractive program for all TRAIL & Beta members! Come to Utrecht and join us!


Contributions on any topic relevant to progress in TRAIL & Beta research are welcome.

Topics of special interest include:

Transport Policy Analysis (scenarios, KBA, MCDA) Transport policymaking
Travel Behaviour Traffic Management
