We would like to make you aware that the Sir Henry Royce Memorial Lecture 2015 taking place on 1 December will be changing venues. The lecture will now be held at Milton Court Concert Hall on the same date.



To gain further understanding about the change of venue, please read this message from our CEO, Nigel Fine.



Join us on 1 December for a lecture by Professor John Miles as he reflects upon the reasons why the car dominates our urban environments and explores the challenges of freeing our cities from the log-jam of traffic congestion and associated pollution which currently seems inevitable.


In his lecture, John will make reference to current research programmes on low-carbon transport systems and intelligent vehicles.


The lecture will explore the proposition that, to be successful, future public transport and shared ridership systems must simply represent a better journey option than taking the car.


The question is, as engineers, how we might meet this challenge and deliver success in the coming decades?
