Event to mark 50 years of the Transport Studies Group at Marylebone , reflecting on teaching and research, past, present and future

About this event

Join us for a celebratory event, marking 50 (+) years of the Transport Studies Group (TSG) at Marylebone , reflecting on teaching and research, past, present and future.

The event will comprise two distinct segments, the first being an afternoon session with speakers on past development, and current roles, of teaching and research in the Group, together with contributions from alumni who have attained important positions in the transport sector.

This will be followed in the evening by an informal reception for past staff colleagues, alumni and others connected with TSG's work over the years (such as research collaborators in other institutions, external examiners) and presentations ceremony.

The event will take place in person at the Marylebone Campus, and delivered in tandem online, with a joining link to be shared with registered attendees ahead of the event. Tickets are available for in person attendance at the first session and/or reception, and for online attendees, for the first session and/or the Presentations segment of the Reception.
