About EPTS Foundation e.V.
The European Platform of Transport Sciences - EPTS Fundation e.V. is an independent European association of societies and associations working in the field of transport sciences and of other comparable national institutions in Europe who work in that field.
Since its first meeting in 2001 in Vienna the purpose of EPTS Foundation e.V. is the enhancement of the dialogue between politics, science and economy in the field of European transport.
This is to be accomplished by organising scientific events, encouraging the exchange of opinions and experiences, joint PR efforts, the enhancement of scientific research and continuing education, cooperation with other scientific institutions and support of young scientists, especially through the Young Forum of European Transport Sciences (YFE).
The EPTS Foundation e.V. annually organizes the European Transport Congress each year in a different European country.
