In Memory of Laurent Dauby

Paying tribute to a colleague and friend is not always an easy task; but it is certainly an important one for UITP.  

With the passing of our Director of Rail, Laurent Dauby in 2019, we knew that in time it would be important to honour the commitment Laurent gave to public transport throughout his career.  

Laurent was a passionate advocate of public transport and his industry expertise was focused on rail, with more than twenty years committed to advancing our sector.

Now, to continue his legacy, UITP is unveiling a Scholarship Programme in Laurent’s name, inviting the next generation of young, passionate leaders to become our 2021 scholars.

Laurent’s main focuses were within the rail sector and our training programmes with the UITP Academy, where he took great pleasure in sharing his expertise and being inspired by the next generation of public transport leaders.

Laurent was a respected colleague to many across the public transport sector, and a friend to even more. His commitment to advancing our industry was recognised by all of those who knew him. UITP believes that a legacy such as this deserves to be honoured with a commitment to collaborate with the next generation of public transport leaders. I encourage all of those who meet the criteria to apply for what I know will be a rich and rewarding experience.”
