TPS is sponsoring a Special Session on

‘Growing and improving transport planning skills in Europe’.

Our call is:

‘Following our Special Session on this topic last year, we invite transport practitioners and academics from across Europe to share how transport planning is regarded and structured in your country/region, how skills are developed and recognized, and your thoughts on how transport planning could be improved through better collaboration, networking, training and skills development.

Paper topics could include:

  • The development and recognition of transport planning as a profession in European countries
  • Routes into transport planning in European countries, covering university courses (undergraduate and masters level) and alternative routes (such as apprenticeships and work experience)
  • Post‐academic training in European countries – training in employment, professional development schemes and further qualifications which recognize competency in transport planning.
  • Ideas for pan‐European networking and collaboration in transport planning to support the development of transport planning skills and opportunities to do more through the AET
  • Case studies of projects or research that have been delivered through collaboration and integrated working between transport professionals and/or academics in European countries

We welcome papers from practitioners, academics, researchers and anyone else with an interest in the development of transport planning skills in Europe.
