On March 19, approximately 70 YPT members and friends gathered at the Delegation of the European Union in Washington, DC for a lively discussion with Dr. Felix Leinemann on the latest transportation initiatives in the European Union, and transatlantic cooperation in transportation. The discussion focused on the European Union’s transportation policies and initiatives, followed by a discussion of areas where the EU may possibly collaborate with the US, including Intelligent Transportation Systems, high speed rail, urban mobility and climate change, aviation, and maritime.
