  • This seminar will assess opportunities for UK transport to integrate new technologies, utilise big data and the policy requirements for the integration of autonomous vehicles and transformation of transport systems.

    Following the conclusion of evidence presented to the Science and Technology Committee’s Autonomous vehicles inquiry, the recent announcement in the Autumn Statement of £390 million investment in future transport technology, and with the Modern Transport Bill due to be introduced in early-2017 that will include further measures to increase investment in the next generation of transport, discussion is expected on next steps and implementation for innovative transport technology in the 21st Century. 

  • The environmental impact of transport within Europe is increasing due to increased mobility of people and goods. Products for example can be designed in one country, manufactured in another and sold in all European countries while people can live and work in any Member State of the EU. To reduce this environmental impact, the Ecovehicle project is developing the concept of road and rail vehicles with a low environmental footprint and aiming to define a classification for vehicles in order to promote those that are environmentally friendly.

  • Join the Advanced Propulsion Centre for a lively debate at the Royal Institution on 14 November, where a panel of industry experts will offer differing visions of the future – and argue that their technology has the power to let the internal combustion engine (I.C.E.) rest in peace.

  • This year marks 60 years since the Clean Air Acts, legislation that tackled the devastating impacts of the great smogs of the 1950’s. EPUK campaigned for this legislation (as the National Society for Clean Air), as we continue to push now for robust environmental legislation and programmes to protect human health, in the light of uncertainty around Brexit. EPUK is marking this significant milestone with a look back and a look ahead, to consider the opportunities and challenges for environmental protection from the current situation and the future to provide health protection for all in the UK.
