Special interest groups
As part of fostering greater cross-campus collaboration, the Urban Living theme identifies areas in which there are numerous individuals or groups already engaged in research, but in which some greater co-ordination or capacity building would be valuable.
The group includes academic and research staff from all three faculties, representing a wide range of interests within the scope of transport in the urban world. Through a series of internal workshops the group is working towards strong interdisciplinary research funding applications.
As of summer 2018, the SIG's focus has been incorporated into the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund activity on mobility. Once this activity comes to an end, the Transport group focus will resume as before.
