Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction

Transforming infrastructure through smarter information

CSIC Research Associate Dr Timea Nochta and CSIC Co-Investigator Dr Li Wan from the Department of Land Economy are collaborating with Dr Louise Reardon of University of Birmingham on a project, Facilitating Policy Change for Low Carbon Mobility: The Role of Multilevel Governancewhich has recently been awarded funding from the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS)This is one of eight projects funded as part of the CREDS recent Early Career Researcher (ECR) Flexible Fund Call. CREDS is a research centre based at the University of Oxford, established in 2018 with a vision to make the UK a leader in understanding the changes in energy demand needed for the transition to a secure and affordable, low carbon energy system.

Dr Nochta and Dr Wan will be investigating the urgent and significant changes to transport policy which are required if the UK is to meet its net-zero ambitions. The project will be comparing the multilevel governance of two city regions, Birmingham and Cambridge, using original data from policy documents, participatory mapping workshops and semi-structured interviews. In doing so, the project will provide important and timely recommendations for ways in which current UK governance arrangements can be supported to enable more effective local policy responses towards low carbon mobility.
