TRI organises joint meeting with DfT and other research sponsors

TRI recently organised a joint meeting with Department for Transport at their offices in London, between the DfT, research sponsors (EPSRC, ESRC, InnovateUK, Transport Systems Catapult, Transport Scotland, Welsh Government) and several members of the University Transport Studies Group (UTSG). The meeting provided an opportunity to improve the alignment of research priorities between academics and the end users of transport research. More targeted subject-specific meetings are intended to be held in future, in order to deepen engagement, and this represents an important step forwards in improving the impact of transport research at universities across the UK and Ireland. For any enquiries, please contact Professor Tom Rye (UTSG chair) or Dr Jason Monios (UTSG secretary).
