Catapults A new force for innovation & growth Part of a world-leading network of technology and innovation centres Bridge the gap between businesses, academia, research and government Long-term investment to transform the UK’s ability to create new products and services Open up global opportunities for the UK and generate sustained economic growth for the future Being established and overseen by the Technology Strategy Board Two further Catapults announced 7 Catapults 7 Catapults £1b n private and public sector investment £1b n private and public sector investment All Catapults up and running in 2013 All Catapults up and running in 2013 Transport Systems High Value Manufacturing Satellite Applications Offshore Renewable Energy Connected Digital Economy Future Cities Cell Therapy
Why is Transport Important? ‘the UK’s ability to generate and sustain economic growth and jobs depends on the quality of our transport systems.’ ICE State of the Nation report 2014 Key driver to the health and wealth of the nation Without transport, we would run out of most foods within seven days and energy within a few weeks Transport gets us to work, it ensures we can get the goods we need (and want). Transport enables us to live where we want, work where we can, enjoy our leisure time
Why is Transport Important? Globally 30 million miles of roads 80 billion passenger kilometers per day 30 billion tonne kilometers of freight per day 50,000 vessels deliver 570 million containers to ports around the world UK 1.4 million people are employed in the transport and storage sector Total length of road in Great Britain estimated to be 245.4 thousand miles Value of logistics to UK economy: £75bn
Population Growth - 2050 World population currently 7.1 billion will increase to 9.7 billion UK population will swell from today's 62.2 million to 77 million + 24% Equivalent to combined populations of Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds Bigger than France (70 million proj.) and Germany (71.5 million proj.)
Negative Impact Excess delay is costing our urban economies £11 billion pa This will increase to £22 billion pa by 2025 Carbon emissions impose costs to society of up to £4 billion pa Public health costs c£25 billion through physical inactivity, air quality and noise.
Energy Consumption Rapidly Increasing Energy Costs +46% projected 2013 - 2020 Transport: 36% of total consumption of UK energy products 2012. Road transport: 74% Air transport: 23% Rail 2% Marine 0.6% Transport Energy Consumption: +11% 1990 to 2011 Some decrease in total consumption since 2007 Economic downturn Less car use for leisure Improved engine efficiency
Common Requirements All modes (road, rail, sea, air, active) have common requirements: Reducing cost Reducing use of resources and environmental impact Increasing efficiency Improving convenience 17
Complexity Markets and industry silos Need to drive behaviour change – users and providers Very wide range of stakeholders Metrics Role of government Commercialising R&D - IP
Challenges to Innovation ‘It is very evident that the challenges of technology development are not related primarily to the technology itself, but to the regulatory, commercial and operational environment in which development and deployment takes place’ Railway Industry Association report on Technology Development 2009 ‘The key to Intelligent Mobility lies in the interconnections which can be made between a range of different industries and technologies.’ Automotive Council
Intelligent Mobility: The efficient & cost effective movement of people and goods
10 Innovation Challenges 1. Improving the traveller experience at transport modal interchanges 2. Minimising the impact of disruption through use of adjacent transport networks 3. Incentivising the provision of a seamless journey through modal interchanges 4. Providing personalised contextualised, trusted, information that improves the traveller experience 5. Developing insight from transport system information to improve the performance of the network 6. Offering end to end mobility as a service 7. Integrating quality of life and city economy benefits into transport decisions 8. Enabling whole journey accessibility of transport systems 9. Taking a systems approach to investment and policy in transport infrastructure 10. Delivering seamless freight
Benefits of intelligent mobility Social perspective: Reductions in CO 2 (help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 34% by 2020 and 80% by 2050) Improved safety and security of public and private transport Smarter end to end travel options Reduced congestion Health and wealth of the citizen
Benefits of intelligent mobility Business perspective: Connecting expertise: expediting the commercialisation of research to generate exploitable IPR Clustering of transport systems organisations Providing a platform for start-up businesses in transport technology areas Economic perspective: Improvement in the competitiveness of the UK Increased direct foreign investment Direct economic benefits through increases in transport sector jobs Improved efficiency in the haulage and logistics sectors and……………….
