Call for Papers for the Young Forum

From 26 to 28 November 2019, the "Young Forum" will take place during the next STUVA conference. Qualified young engineers and employees from all fields of tunnel construction and tunnel operation aged between 30 and 35 will be invited to apply with an interesting contribution for the lecture event.

The participants of the "Young Forum" should have already gained initial experience in practice or science and should be able to report on current new developments in their respective fields. From the proposals submitted, about five will be selected for the "Young Forum" lecture event. The winners of the preliminary decision will then have the opportunity to present in front of a large and competent audience at the STUVA Conference 2019. The winner of the STUVA Young Talent Award will be chosen from the speakers by means of an audience decision. The award ceremony will then take place as part of the festive evening event. The winners of the past years won trips to tunnel construction sites in Dubai, China, Toronto and Doha. The travel reports were then published in the "Tunnel". Some examples can be viewed under the link on the right.
Anna-Lena Hammer, member of the steering committee of the STUVA-YEP - Forum for Young Engineering Professionals and winner of the 2011 Young Engineering Professionals Award, will be happy to provide further information.
