Centre for Urban Transport Technology at Queen Mary: Launch Event

9 September 2020

Centre for Urban Transport Technology at Queen Mary Industry Event, Queen Mary University of London.

Date and time: Friday, 18 September 2020 14:00 - 16:00 BST

Queen Mary University of London has won two large grants from the Department for Education (£18M) and the Skills for London (£10M) to establish the Institute of Technology (IOT) where we will offer degree apprenticeships from 2022 with our partners at Newham College.

As part of this, Queen Mary is establishing a new Centre for Urban Transport Technology and new relationships with large employers and SMEs.

So far more than 50 Queen Mary academics have expressed an interest in joining this research centre. One of our initial motivations was to bring together this community at Queen Mary so that it is easier for external partners to navigate and to allow us to develop a Queen Mary wide activity from which we can build large future CDTs and research grants.

Dr Jun Chen, Senior Lecturer in Engineering Science and Turing Fellow, invites IADS members for the launch event for the new Centre for Urban Transport Technology at Queen Mary. In this launch event, two of our IOT anchor partners, Siemens and the Port of London Authority, as well as Connected Places Catapult and Podaris, will join us to scope out their largest research challenges. We also encourage our academics to pitch our research areas. Our idea is that we will identify initial projects of mutual interest that our existing taught students can work on collaboratively in 2020-21.
