The Young Forum of European Transport Sciences (YFE) was founded 2003 in Budapest. The main objective of YFE is to support young scientists (under the age of 40) in the field of transportation sciences in their international studies either by establishing contacts to foreign scientists, institutions or companies or by organising field trips related to transport science.
The YFE is part of the European Platform of Transport Sciences and closely integrated in all of the EPTS´ administrative institutions and decisions. At every European Transport Congress, the YFE organizes both a general assembly of the YFE as well as a single conference session.
The YFE is open to members from all European Countries.

Since 2004, The European Friedrich List Award is conferred annually by the YFE in the categories "best thesis" and "best dissertation". To date, around 150 scientific works have been nominated and evaluated. The winners´ works are of perpetual outstanding scientific quality, reflecting the award’s high reputation and acceptance among experts.
