Intelligent Transport Systems UK (ITS UK) has launched a new webinar series, in partnership with the Transport Technology Forum, exploring the changing trends in transport over the coming decade.

The series of four webinars will look at the upcoming opportunities and challenges facing the intelligent transport sector, focusing on how the industry could look in the next decade or so.  The webinars will look respectively at the changing workforce, technology, global markets and procurement and funding.

Running over the course of the year, the webinars will seek to give a glimpse of what lies ahead for the sector, and for our wide transport network.
