Research and Innovation Autumn Showcase

24 October 2014

Steer Davies Gleave is proud to have run an internal Research and Innovation (R&I) programme for many years, and we see it as an important part of our profile. All of our consultants can get involved, but we make a special effort to involve our younger staff, giving them a very wide brief – and the time – to investigate all manner of issues and topics. The result is a growing portfolio of new ideas and products that we can bring to our clients.

This October we held our second Research and Innovation Showcase event, giving invited guests the chance to see some of the rich variety of R&I work the company has done over the last year. Guests from organisations including Transport for London, ATOC, the Sports Ground Safety Authority, Department for Transport, Heathrow and the Greater London Authority saw six mini-presentations from SDG staff. The topics were:

  • Transport delays and how commuters find information 
  • Understanding live sites and road events
  • Using the Thames as a way to commute 
  • An update on the rail fares and house prices work 
  • Research into driver's use of managed lanes 
  • A review of Value of Time (VoT) research

Following the presentation there was an opportunity to network and discuss the topics in further detail. Certainly there were lots of ideas firing back and forth afterwards.

We're pleased to share that feedback has been very good and as a result there will be a further events early in 2015 both at our London and Leeds offices. If you would like to be kept informed of when this will be please forward your contact details to our marketing team.

If you would like to know more about any of the projects discussed during October's event, or our earlier event in April, please contact the presenters directly.
