From driverless cars and drone deliveries to on-demand public transport and new data-driven mobility services, the way we move people and goods is soon to change beyond recognition.

On 29th October 2018, the TSC opened a new office in Glasgow to help facilitate transport innovation in Scotland. As part of our ongoing efforts to transform the future of the transport industry in line with the Scottish Government’s long-term goals, we will be hosting two key events on the 25th and 26th February, both at the University of Strathclyde.

Support and Networking event – Monday 25th February

This free event will explore developments in the Intelligent Mobility and Transport Innovation sector, and also offer support and guidance to growing businesses to help them bridge the gap between new innovations and commercial success. 

We already have a fantastic line up of speakers confirmed including Simon Tricker, founder of Urban Tide, James Blackwood, Chief Operating and Technical Officer at Simplifai, Adam Reid, CEO of PeddleSmart, Bernard O’Hear from the Department for International Trade, John Boyle, Director of Oracle Inventive Solutions, Douglas Hyslop, Senior Executive from Scottish Enterprise and Emil Rangelov, Founder of HV systems, to mention just a few.

Engaging with Academia- Tuesday 26th February

Our Academic Engage event will bring together, academics, transport professionals, researchers and knowledge exchange experts from across the UK who are working in Intelligent Mobility and Smart Transportation, and to give an insight into the TSC’s future plans and opportunities for you to become part of this future.

Your input on the day will be key to shaping the activities of Academic Network for Intelligent Mobility and inform how the TSC can best support it going forward and also find out about how the TSC can support you.
