We live in exciting and interesting times and in the UK we have a significant opportunity to become a world leader in the design, development and deployment of integrated transport systems. The mission of the Transport community at the Knowledge Transfer Network is to support the development of integrated, efficient and sustainable transport systems, by bringing together independent but interrelated organisations to stimulate innovation through knowledge transfer.
As an independent organization focusing on the key challenges of lightweighting, intelligent mobility and energy efficiency across surface transport, we bring together expertise and technology from across automotive, rail and marine sectors to share challenges, ideas and best practice. Through stimulating innovation we will improve the integration, efficiency and sustainability of the transport system as a whole.
In coming together around these key challenge areas, synergies are realised, markets aggregated and barriers are overcome.
