Purpose

Through a series of Industry and Academic Forums we would like to create an environment that brings together researchers from academia and industry, with diverse experience and activities in distinct, yet complementary areas, to discuss the development of research and collaborative projects. We will also share the progress, achievements, and investments that the Beacon has made so far and open the discussion on a range of themes that cumulate to drive greener transport forward.
