International Transport & Mobility Research

Overview

Our international research and innovation arm plays a leading role in mobility research and demonstration projects.

Through this work and how we apply it, we are helping to advance more sustainably designed, low carbon and future-proofed communities.

With our international offices, we work with a wide range of organisations including the European Commission, the EBRD, the World Bank and the United Nations.

We use our research to understand the social aspects of mobility and transport. This informs the narratives for our development planning clients, which include urban designers, masterplanners, property developers, municipalities and transport authorities.

The focus of our future mobility work is wide-ranging and covers sustainability, climate change, social cohesion, virtual mobility, flexible streets, new technologies, smart economics and pandemic resilience.

Through envisioning the future and implementing the latest innovations, we are proud to be making a positive contribution, driving decarbonisation and changing mind-sets about travel behaviour, at the same time addressing the needs of different genders and generations.
