Picturing an exciting future for Transport Systems
Throughout the latter half of 2012, Daniel Ruiz and the Transport Systems Catapult team worked hard with industry and academic stakeholders to put together the Enhanced Business Case for the proposed Catapult. This was submitted to the Governing Board of the Technology Strategy Board at the end of 2012.
The purpose of this document was to showcase industry-backed programmes, which would benefit the UK home and export markets, which it was believed would attract further match-funding from government.
Business Case Endorsed
In January, the Governing Board of the Technology Strategy Board endorsed the case for investing in the Catapult - paving the way for setting up the legal entity, recruiting key executives, identifying a location and planning all the other elements needed to set up a world-leading centre in its field.
Initial work planned
Specifically, preparatory work will continue on the development of a national transport systems modeling facility and a virtual test environment, where the UK’s world-class physical testing capability can be linked to digital models.
Where to now?
We are running a short webinar - our 5th in the series - on 5th Feb 2013, to update our stakehoholders on progress, outline the work planned and provide an opportunity for you to ask questions and shape the development of the work ahead.

Transport community at Knowledge Transfer Network
The mission of the Transport community on the Knowledge Transfer Network is to support the development of integrated, efficient and sustainable transport systems, by bringing together independent but interrelated organisations to stimulate innovation through knowledge transfer.
The KTN strategy is driven by market demand and supply-chain innovation; our work and programme priorities are set by the need for additionality, relevance, and neutrality. Winthin the transport community, we aim to break down traditional silo thinking and encourage knowledge, skills and technology exchange within the domains of Intelligent Mobility and Energy Efficiency.
We help focus TSB investment, and manage stand-alone programmes to better exploit technology to improve transport and transport infrastructure in the UK and overseas.
