Executive Dinner with Sarah Sharples

26 June @ 18:00 - 22:00

Executive Members Only

Each year, ITS UK organises four dinners, exclusively for our Executive Members, providing them with the opportunity to meet with key decision-makers in the transport sector and to discuss key issues of the day in an intimate setting.


As Chief Scientific Advisor, Sarah Sharples provides advice and independent challenge to Ministers and senior officials and ensures the Department’s work is supported by rigorous scientific evidence. Sarah will discuss her key priorities in the role, including the upcoming Transport AI Strategy and the importance of user behaviour in transport.


This event is kindly sponsored by Arup, AtkinsRealis and Egis.
