On Monday 20thMay 2013, there was a town meeting under the Transport and Sustainable Mobility theme of UCL’s Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities (GCSC) to discuss the creation of a pan UCL Transport Institute. Using the SCHAPeS person-centred, complex systems research approach – which addresses Safety,Culture, Health and wellbeing, Accessibility, Prosperity and economic growth, and Security – the aims of the institute are “to promote new cross-disciplinary collaboration in research and bridge the translational gap to inform policy and practice and enhance societal relevance”. More information about  the new Transport Institute can be found in the prospectus here.
