Evening Series Talks – Connected Transport Systems of the Future
Aberdeen City Council, Robert Gordon University and the University of Aberdeen have collaborated to organise a series of evening talks on the theme of ‘Connected Transport Systems of the Future’ which will run from February to May 2018.
The presentation series will look at not only what the future of transport systems may look like and the increasing role of smart phones, but also how sustainable transport solutions can be further developed between cities and rural areas linking to national, regional and local transport policy.
The series of evening talks has been organised and funded through the EU funded project ‘CiViTAS PORTIS’ which has the purpose of designing, demonstrating and evaluating sets of sustainable transport measures that address the mobility problems of port cities across Europe.
Further information on the Evening Series Talks can be found in the Information Leaflet.

This Med-Chi lecture, with Dr David Christmas will discuss the Modern Management of Treatment-Refractory Depression and OCD. Held on Thursday 12th April 2018 at 7pm – 9pm at the Medico-Chirurgical Hall, Medical School, Foresterhill, Aberdeen, AB25 2ZD.
This event is for post-graduate research students, researchers and academics working within health and social care. It is an exciting opportunity to listen to experienced researchers who have used a hermeneutic phenomenological approach to highlight some of the challenges in undertaking this type of study and to demonstrate how philosophical concepts can be applied to illuminate meaning within health and social care related research projects. This all day event will be held on Friday 27th April at Robert Gordon’s University.
For 2018 we need your events! Events include; information sessions, drop-ins, conferences, training courses and workshops.
