The University of Nottingham is at the forefront of smart transport and mobility innovation within a future city context. Our activity spans the whole University, and includes the Faculty of Engineering and the Schools of Computer Science, Psychology, Philosophy, English, History as well as the Business School.
Through this strong and established internal network we share knowledge, learning and data to develop holistic solutions across the transport, mobility and cities domains to co-create future cities.
The Transport, Mobility and Cities initiative, or Transport, Mobility and Cities at Nottingham, is concerned with creating knowledge for a better understanding of, and response to, the challenges cities and citizens face.
We aim to make cities and their systems smarter, greener, sustainable and more efficient, through research that is innovative, challenge-oriented and useful to a range of stakeholders. Our particular and unique focus is the challenge of placement and movement of people and goods, and their consequent impact on city planning, energy use, carbon emissions and citizens’ health.

Urban sustainability has become a global priority, but tackling it in the most densely populated places on earth, cities, is an enormous challenge. Equally difficult is understanding how we can protect cities from sudden shocks, and make them resilient enough to ensure they can contribute to sustainable societies. Finding the answers to these challenges can only be accomplished through interdisciplinary and collaborative research effort, which is what we offer at Transport, Mobility and Cities at Nottingham.
The University of Nottingham is at the forefront of smart transport and mobility innovation within a future city context. Our activity spans the whole University, including world-leading expertise from more than 100 staff from 26 different schools, departments and groups in all 5 faculties. We work closely with over 100 external national and international stakeholders. Through this strong and established network we share knowledge, learning and data to develop holistic solutions across the transport, mobility and cities domains.
