New research partnership to tackle transport challenges
A new research collaboration between transport analytics firm Veitch Lister Consulting (VLC) and the University of Queensland is set to tackle issues of how we navigate our cities.
The new agreement will see researchers explore new solutions to manage congestion and reduce emissions, including policies around electric, shared and automated vehicles.
The partnership will allow UQ researchers and students to participate in collaborative projects, gaining valuable industry experience and working on mobility challenges in Australia.
VLC Chief Executive Officer Tim Veitch said he was looking forward to bringing UQ’s expertise on board to help combat transport challenges.
“There are numerous questions that will need answering over the next decade, and through this partnership we’ll be able to provide our clients with the expertise of leading transport researchers at UQ.”
UQ School of Civil Engineering head Professor Simon Washington said the agreement could lead to breakthroughs, solutions to significant civil engineering challenges, and future employment opportunities for students.
