Our H2020 research interests

dub bridgeIn keeping with Transport Insights’ commitment to innovation, we are keen to pursue development of new approaches, tools and techniques to address the transport related economic, social and environmental challenges facing Ireland and Europe.  As a result, we warmly welcome the publication of the Horizon 2020 transport work programme for 2016 - 2017.

Having mapped Transport Insights‘ core capabilities against the work programme[1], MG.4.5-2016 of the urban mobility domain – “New ways of supporting development and implementation of neighbourhood-level transport innovations”– appears to be of greatest interest.  Transport Insights remains eager however to explore suitable opportunities elsewhere in the work programme.

2015-09-03 09.14.48Transport Insights has recently been commissioned by the Jack and Jill Foundation to provide advice and support in relation to the proposed National Children's Hospital development at St. James's Hospital Campus in Dublin 8.
 
Working alongside other members of the client team, Transport Insights' support has built upon our expertise in development planning, behavioural change, public transport, parking management and traffic modelling.  It has represented a unique opportunity for our team to engage in the planning process for this strategically important hospital development on behalf of Jack and Jill Foundation, the highly respected national children's charity.
 
While the Board of Jack and Jill has for some considerable time had major reservations in relation to the selection of the St. James's Hospital Campus as the site for the National Children's Hospital, Transport Insights' comprehensive evidence base review of the application and supplemental impact analysis has reinforced and clearly articulated traffic and transport related concerns.

2015-10-15 08.41.53-2 v1.2Transport Insights has produced a note providing advice on the key elements of a successful transport strategy.  These strategies are generally commissioned by central, regional or local government, and form part of a structured planning framework, to inform policy – in particular spatial/ land use and economic development plans or social inclusion initiatives, and/ or development of capital investment programmes.

As such, maximising the effectiveness of a transport strategy and setting it in the wider land use planning context, while ensuring its deliverability are of the utmost importance – these represent the strategy’s critical success factors. 

The advice note can be found here.
