Transport Innovation Centre Sheffield

The Floow - September 16th, 2014

The University of Sheffield’s Faculty of Engineering is holding an event to launch their new Transport Innovation Centre Sheffield (TICS) as part of the Transport Systems Catapult (TSC) University Partner Programme.

The Floow are happy to confirm that we, alongside the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, are an official partner of this new body, bringing leading research for transport to Sheffield.

The Transport Innovation Centre Sheffield, which was announced at the ‘Brains to Business’ event on June 16th, is one of the TSC’s network of long-term university partners – supporting their vision of Intelligent Mobility for the benefit of the economy and society within the UK. It aims to provide the industry and organisations with access to the UK’s world-class research and work to ensure that the UK has the skilled workforce to support the Intelligent Mobility market.

£1m has been awarded by the TSC to support activities and projects at 14 different universities over the course of the next three years. The aim of The University Partner Programme is to encourage and promote collaboration with business and focus on the development of products and solutions within the field of Intelligent Mobility – an emerging global market estimated to be worth £900bn per year by 2025.

The Innovation Centre is holding a launch and planning event on the 18th September at the University to officially present TICS to many industry partners and to collectively scope the work and priority areas for both the University and industry. The Floow’s Innovation Leader and Co-Founder Dr Sam Chapman will be attending the event and giving a short presentation.
