Activities

Each year, BIVEC-GIBET organizes many activities centered on current topics in the field of transportation research. For our members our activities are free of charge for our members or there is a substantial reduction of the registration fee.

Biannually, we organise the Transport Research Days, a conference that offers young and established scholars from the three Benelux-Countries an opportunity to present their research findings to an informed audience of transport researchers.

Also every two years BIVEC-GIBET awards its Transport Chair to an individual who has made an important scientific contribution related to transport and mobility within Europe. In the context of this award several lectures are organised. Current chair holder is professor Alan McKinnon (Kühne Logistics University) who will give three lectures in relation to "Low Carbon Freight Transport in a Climate-Changed World" (lectures in be in Brussels, Rotterdam and Liège).

Finally, our organisation (co-)organises many activities related to transportation research in the Benelux, such as the 2016 Conference on the Future of Collective Passenger Transport by Road and the Seminar about Belgium as a logistic top location.

While Dutch and French were traditionally the working languages, most of our activities are now in English in order to reduce the translation costs.
