Following a successful inaugural year involving 5 project teams, the Future Transport Visions Group (FTVG) is now inviting expressions of interest for a new programme of research and development projects in 2022.
The initiative is targeted at people in the first ten years of their transport career, and provides a platform for them to develop research and innovation in collaboration with other like-minded professionals. Applications are open to:
FTVG fosters collaboration; drawing together individuals with similar interests and ideas across multiple organisations and geographies. All applicants entering the competition will be invited to a series of collaboration workshops to help form teams. These teams can then formally apply for funding through the initiative.
The format of the initiative has changed based on feedback from last year. It now includes an expanded programme, providing successfully funded teams with a 8-month window to undertake their project. This year’s initiative will culminate at the Transport Practitioners Meeting 2023, where all participants will get to present their findings, and the winner of our Outstanding Project Award will be announced.
The winners of the previous competition – the Gender Equality Toolkit in Transport – have gone on to speak at multiple conferences, and also received additional funding to develop their idea further.
Applications can be submitted via the “Expressions of Interest” button on the top right of this page.
