Edinburgh Napier’s Transport Research Institute celebrate their 25th anniversary – Member Profile for April 2021 newsletter

Published 26 April 2021 by Edinburgh Napier University Transport Research Institute

Join us as we celebrate 25 years of Edinburgh Napier’s Transport Research Institute (TRI)

TRI’s 25th anniversary Timeline Event, Thursday 29 April.

At this event, you will hear from past members of TRI who will describe how it shaped over the years and the contributions they made to its current success. Hear from past students who will share their experiences at Napier and how their skills opened up job opportunities in the transport sector and learn more about the research and teaching work which TRI is involved in and how this might be relevant to you.

This is an online webinar starting from the Transport Research Institute’s inception in 1996, history, how it developed, running through to present day and our future plans.

TRI, together with the wider Civil and Transportation Subject Group, have provided the MSc in Transport Planning and Engineering since 1991.  Many of our alumni have obtained senior positions in public bodies, local authorities, consultancies and 3rd sector transport related organisations, as well as continuing studies on to PhD level.

The event will open with a Welcome Address from Prof Andrea Nolan, Edinburgh Napier’s Principal & Vice Chancellor.
