Welcome to YEAR

Welcome to the Young European Arena of Research website.

This site showcases early-stage research within the Road Transport arena from across Europe. You can browse through this site and view all submitted abstracts that summarise areas of current research and highlight expected deliverables within the field. This will stimulate your interest while also allowing you to compare work with others and possibly form collaborations with people that are in the same or complementary fields. The site is open for viewing by all those interested in the road transport research!
