Why attend Modelling World?

We are once again at a critical time in modelling history...

 

The Department for Transport's Chief Scientific Adviser and Chief Analyst recently announced areas of research interest for 2023. One priority is 'reducing environmental impacts, tackling climate change, improving air quality, biodiversity and ensuring the transport system adapts to be resilient to the effects of climate change'.

 

The rapid development of modelling capability and tools leaves modellers well placed to help the DfT deliver on these aims.

 

At the same time, the evolution of new travel, social and economic trends has given the data and modelling community many opportunities – as well as new challenges – as it gets to grips with current uncertainties.

 

Modelling World 2024 brings together UK and European experts – with a few international provocateurs thrown in – to meet, network, discuss and debate the way forward in an independent, convivial and professional space.
