The ITEA Scientific Committee and Local Organizing Committee are thrilled to confirm that Professor Hai Yang will give the Opening Lecture and that Professor David Besanko will be our ITEA Keynote Lecturer.

The aim of the annual ITEA School is to provide young researchers a high-quality introduction to academic research on transport economics, including many recent advances in the field. The School’s program consists of a series of lectures and tutorials; all faculty members are among the most prominent researchers in transport economics. The School contains two parts: the first two-and-half days consist of lectures by renowned scholars, whereas the last two-and-half days require students to attend the conference with the possibility to present their own work.

The aim of the annual ITEA Conference is to promote scientific excellence in the field of transport economics and to provide a forum for scientific exchange. Research presented at the Conference covers both theory and empirical work, it includes all transport modes, and it allows a wide range of research methodologies. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, transport pricing and investment, competition policy, transport decisions under uncertainty, agglomeration effects, valuation of intangibles, privatization, the economics of new transport technologies or the political economy of transport decisions.

With kind regards,
