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.
