Welcome to IMPETUS

The IMPETUS partnership is a joint venture by The University of Nottingham and the University of Leicester, which will support the Transport Systems Catapult’s work on ‘Intelligent Mobility’ – the optimised movement of people and goods. It is estimated that the Intelligent Mobility market globally will be worth £900 billion per year by 2025.
Intelligent Mobility harnesses new technologies to create seamless journeys, where transport is smart and connected, and delays and congestions are a thing of the past. This programme will bring universities and businesses closer together to work on solutions to the most pressing transport challenges, and make those ideas a commercial success.
Steve Yianni
Chief Executive of the Transport Systems Catapult


The IMPETUS partnership will launch a series of events which will enable local businesses to link with the Transport Systems Catapult in order to get involved with research being undertaken and access funding for new technologies. In addition, researchers and academics from the Universities will spend time at the Catapult’s world-class “Imovation” Centre (which combines Intelligent Mobility and innovation) where they will work alongside industry experts to develop solutions to the sector's main challenges.
