The National Seminars: summary info and downloads

Summary

To identify the transferability and policy implications of the emerging results we are hosting 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 at the end in London (Royal Society, September 2013).

The aim of each seminar is 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.

Progress and outcomes

  1. The first national seminar was held at Oxford's St Anne's College in October 2008, with more than 30 external stakeholders attending the one-day event. The programme and presentations of the day can be downloaded in the Links section below.
  2. The second seminar was held at the Cambridge University's Girton College in July 2011, again with more than 30 external stakeholders attending the one-day event. The programme and webcasts of the morning session can be viewed by following the links below.
  3. The third and final seminar was held at the Royal Society London on 24 September 2013, with 60 participants from research, policy and practice. The team presented results of the evaluation of walking & cycling and overall physical activity, the evaluation of overall travel behaviour and carbon emissions, the evaluation of mechanisms of behaviour change and the strategic economic evaluation. The concluding panel discussion sought external views on implications for research, policy and practice by a distinguished panel of experts from Department for Transport, Public Health England, Imperial College London and Sustrans.
