Leipzig, Germany – Every year, the International Transport Forum honours exceptional initiatives in the transport sector with its annual Transport Awards, awarded at the ITF Annual Summit:

  • Transport Achievement Award
  • Promising Transport Innovation Award
  • Young Researcher of the Year Award

The International Transport Forum Awards are open to any organisation (governmental or non-governmental), business or individual within its 59 member countries. The applications are reviewed and winners determined by a jury of selected international experts.
Winners of the Awards are offered the opportunity to present their project to a high-level international audience including transport ministers from around the world and other global leaders from business, civil society, media and academia.

Transport Achievement Award

The 2018 Transport Achievement Award will recognise a demonstrated achievement linked to a significant initiative to improve safety and/or security in the movement of people and/or goods across one or more of the transport modes.

The award aims to encourage continual development and innovation; therefore the initiative must have been in operation for a minimum of two (2) but no longer than five (5) years, to allow for the stated attributes and benefits achieved to be adequately supported by quantitative evidence.

Applications from non-member or observer countries are welcome, but can be considered only for “special mention”.
