Paris/Leipzig – Dr Shanjiang Zhu, assistant professor of engineering at George Mason University in Virginia, USA, is the recipient of the International Transport Forum’s 2014 Young Researcher of the Year Award.
Zhenhua Chen, a Graduate Research Associate in the Center for Transportation P3 Policy, was selected to participate in the 22nd Annual Leadership Development Conference hosted by the Eno Center for Transportation. Zhenhua was chosen from a pool of over 60 applicants and had the opportunity to learn about transportation policy development and industry executive responsibilities and decision-making.
The Center has launched an online library of research and resources on public-private partnerships (P3s).
The library will be developed in three stages:
- A database of known resource documents, many of which are available online.
- An online “reading room” with links to most documents in the library, for immediate download and review.
- A searchable database or knowledge management system through which topics can be cross-referenced and like subjects explored.
Currently populated with more than 250 documents, the collection will grow from additions of existing resources and from scholarly work completed in the United States and abroad.
