Project Meetings

A number of research consortia and other project groups have held their management or dissemination meetings during or adjoining the Conference. This can prove to be a convenient time if several group members already plan to attend the Conference.

The Association for European Transport offers the facility to hold such project meetings alongside or during the European Transport Conference.

To discuss benefits of this with the Association, please contact Sabrina Winter through the AET contact form.
