Task: identify transferability and policy implications

You need to be logged in to edit this content.

The first thread will seek to identify the transferability and policy implications of the emerging results from WPs 2 to 5. The main method for achieving this will be three national seminars:

  1. one in Oxford at the start of the project (October 2008),
  2. one in Cambridge at the midpoint (July 2011) and
  3. one in London towards the end (September 2013).

We will solicit participation in these seminars from key stakeholders including members of the expert advisory board, representatives of relevant government departments and local authorities with interests in the Connect2 case study sites, and representatives of other organisations relevant to the three topic areas of:

  1. travel (e.g. Commission for Integrated Transport, Walk21, Association for Commuter Transport, Cyclists' Touring Club, Living Streets, Ramblers Association),
  2. physical activity and public health (e.g. British Heart Foundation, Faculty of Public Health, Physical Activity and Health Alliance, Public Health Observatories, Sport England, Wellcome Trust) and
  3. carbon (e.g. Office of Climate Change, UK Energy Research Centre, Energy Saving Trust, Leverhulme Trust, Sustainable Development Research Network, Health and Sustainability Network)

as well as others with a more general interest (e.g. Commission on Architecture and the Built Environment, Forestry Commission, National Children's Bureau, Natural England, British Waterways).

The aim of each seminar will be to present our research plans, interim findings or final report as appropriate and identify through discussion the most appropriate messages, audiences and opportunities to influence policy and practice as a result of our research.
