Transport and Health
Our environment is unhealthy. Rapidly growing population that is running out of foods, water and other precious resources, disorganised urbanisation, city infrastructure going backward, pandemics and new diseases, climate change and extreme weather, and global uncertainty and security problems are only few of the challenges threatening our environment and humanity
Our research aims to understand the science and engineering between people, pathogens and pathways within infrastructure, and apply this knowledge to build a healthy environment, helping to solve these problems.
We are also living in a world that is more mobile than it has ever been. As a species we travel further for recreation than previous generations thought possible, and we commute to work for longer than we’ve ever done before. Our systems of travelling and living are vital to our wellbeing, and our health is under constant threat by our development.
The CEGE department’s transport research aims to deliver world class research that contributes to making transport systems safe, sustainable, efficient, secure, equitable, accessible to all and that promotes health and wellbeing. Our work of the centre spans the whole world, from established transport networks to developing solutions to the cities of the future, all around the globe.
