    Keep it Civil 304 – The past, present, and future of transport

    Keep it Civil 304 – The past, present, and future of transport

    In this week’s episode of Keep it Civil, we are joined by Dr Clemence Cavoli from the UCL Centre for Transport Studies, to speak about the past, present, and future trends of transport use. The centre for transport studies is a multidisciplinary research centre at UCL, the work they do covers established transport networks to developing solutions to the cities of the future, all around the globe, and this year celebrated its 50th anniversary.

    Keep It Civil 302 - The Future of Infrastructure

    Keep It Civil 302 - The Future of Infrastructure

    For the second episode of series three we are joined by Professor Brian Collins to talk us through the work of the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC), which aims to address the insufficient and unsustainable value extracted by services using national infrastructure.

    We analyze the motivations for this project, and look at the developments for UK and international infrastructure it will bring about.

    More information about UKCRIC can be found at www.ukcric.com, you can also follow them on twitter @UKCRIC. More information on the International Symposium for Next Generation Infrastructure can be found at www.isngi.org.
