International Transport Forum Awards 2012
Every year, the International Transport Forum Awards honour outstanding achievements in transport, which count among the most distinguished prizes in the transport sector. In 2012 the International Transport Forum Awards are being awarded in three categories: the Leadership in Transport Award, the Young Researcher of the Year and the Transport Achievement Award.
Leadership in Transport Award
The Leadership in Transport Award was created in 2011 to honour public personae who have demonstrated exceptional vision and leadership, and thereby have made an exceptional impact and lasting contribution to transport - be it through a single, high-profile, high-impact initiative or through a sustained commitment over a long period of time that has resulted in major transport advances. The recipient of the first Leadership in Transport Award was urban planning visionary Jaimer Lerner, a pioneer of globally successful public transport ideas.

Young Researcher of the Year Award
The Young Researcher of the Year Award is open to young researchers under 35 years of age who have undertaken their research in an institution, university or consultancy firm located in a member country of the International Transport Forum. The Award aims to highlight the importance of transport research for sound transport policy formulation and implementation and to foster closer links between transport policy and research. The Award carries a prize of 5 000 euros.

Applications for the 2012 Award are now closed.

Transport Achievement Award
In 2012, the International Transport Forum's Transport Achievement Award will be awarded to a project, initiative or service/product offer that demonstrates progress towards the vision of seamless transport.

Seamless transport requires connections between services, systems, markets and industries that result in movement of people and goods with minimal planning and effort. Ideally, clients only need to determine when to use a transport service, and the points of departure and arrival. The transport system then meets this need by combining various modes, connections and services, with minimal transaction hassle and in a cost-effective manner.

The International Transport Forum, with the support of several key industry organisations, notably ITS Canada, ITS Japan, the International Chamber of Shipping, the International Association of Ports and Harbors and the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) is pleased to invite candidates to submit applications for the 2012 Transport Achievement Award.

Applications for the 2012 Award are now closed.
