Outstanding Young Talent Program

  HVTT15 -clever


The HVTT15 symposium aims to promote the scientific and engineering achievements of young engineers. HVTT15 offers a place for them during the symposium. With new advanced developments within the field of heavy vehicle transport technology on their way and more exciting innovations to be expected in the future, it is important that HVTT inspires young and talented researchers and, vice versa, is inspired by them.


The HVTT15 wishes to foster the exchange of knowledge between young researchers and more experienced participants to the conference. To that end there will be two special Young Talent Sessions of one hour each. For each session, in the first half hour, five selected young researchers are invited to hold a presentation. The presentation consists of a maximum of 15 slides, with each slides having a duration of exactly 20 seconds. The approach is very much like a Pecha Kucha event, but with 15 instead of 20 slides. In the second part of the session, the presenters will form a panel, to be questioned by the HVTT audience. The discussion will be chaired by a member of the scientific committee. This will allow the presenters to receive valuable feedback and hands-on advice from senior researchers, and have recognition from the world-wide IFRTT network.

From the total of ten selected young researchers, three promising young researchers will be awarded for the HVTT Young Talent Award by a special jury, with one of the nominees being the overall winner. 

Who can attend?

The Young Talent program is open for undergraduates, master students and recent graduates with an age of 35 years or younger at the start of HVTT15 in September 2018. Selected nominees will get a reduced symposium fee of € 150, not including excursions and symposium dinner. After acceptance of the abstract they can register with a unique discount code.
