Institute of Transport and Economics
Graduates of transport economics at the TU Dresden and employees of the Institute of Transport and Economics exchanged views on current developments.
In April, an exciting event took place for all transport economists at TU Dresden. Alumni of the Institute of Transport and Economics and a former employee of the Institute organised a network meeting in Berlin. On 22 April, it was time to meet again or get to know each other and exchange ideas. In addition to the graduates of transport economics (Bachelor and Master), former and current employees of the Institute were also invited.
Some of the alumni travelled long distances for the reunion - the transport economists came to Berlin not only from Dresden, but also from Zurich, Hamburg and Munich, among other places.
In addition to exciting insights into the everyday professional life of the graduates, there was input on current developments at the Institute of Economics and Transport.
The evening was rounded off with stimulating discussions and a joint dinner.
Many thanks to the organisers Fabian Heidegger, Jona Postner, Ferry Quast and Prof. Christos Evangelinos for the successful event.
