City Collaborative Transport Hub - Panel discussion

City University London has launched an interdisciplinary transport centre. The City Collaborative Transport Hub (CCTH) will focus on “Promoting research, education and holistic solutions into transportation.” It will build on current postgraduate education and research strengths in key areas such as air transport, shipping and maritime operations, and automotive engineering, together with underpinning research capability in software reliability, systems engineering, risk analysis and human behaviour.

Taking good transport decisions rests on first having clear policies and objectives, combined with a sound evidence base. Techniques for devising and assessing alternative delivery provide essential support. City University London is perfectly placed to offer advice to businesses, governments and other organisations on integrated solutions for large cities like London.

To deliver part of the University's strategic purpose to create and disseminate knowledge and insight that adds value to City's role as the University for business and the professions, six interdisciplinary centres were created. Transport is one of these key development areas, under the directorship of Professor Dinos Arcoumanis, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research & International).

To ensure the Transport Hub has real world relevance, an interdisciplinary Advisory Committee was created which includes a mix of external advisors and City experts. It is chaired by Professor Eric Sampson CBE, formerly Head of Transport Technology at the Department for Transport.
