Our annual papers competition returns this March. We received a high number of abstracts and our judges have shortlisted the following speakers to present on the evening:
• Traffic Modelling and Appraisal of the North East Clean Air Zone by Weijia Chen, AECOM
• Barriers to Electric Vehicle Uptake by Fynn Wang, Newcastle University
• The DfT Active Modes Appraisal Tool - Developing User Guidance by Kalina Petrova, WSP
• Does climate change have professional ethics implications for transport planners? by Alistair Baldwin, Newcastle City Council
• Autonomous Vehicles – Impact on Marginalised Groups, particularly Young People by Emma Scott, Jacobs
All presenters are in the early stages of their career in highways and transportation. Each presenter will be judged against certain criteria, with a cash prize for the eventual winner. The presentations on the evening will be judged on content (30%), presentation (40%), responding to questions (20%) and overall quality of the presentation (10%).
Join us at the prestigious Northern Stage to supporting our younger professionals in this friendly but lively presentations competition. Up to five candidates will have no more than 10 minutes to concisely present their chosen highways and transportation related topic, and then field questions from colleagues and peers. Following judging, the overall winner will be announced. It’s an evening always full of interesting subjects and lively debate.
This is a free event but please register if you wish to attend. A buffet is included. The event can also be used for accredited CPD time.
This event will be attended by the CIHT President, Martin Tugwell, who will give a short address and be available for questions after the event.
The event is free and a buffet will be provided.
