TInnGO - Transport Innovation Gender Observatory
Women face higher risks and burdens than men in transport, due to unequal access to resources, education, job opportunities and entrenched socio-cultural norms.
TInnGO, funded through the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme, will develop a framework and mechanisms for a sustainable game change in European transport using the transformative strategy of gender and diversity sensitive smart mobility. It will address gender related contemporary challenges in the transport ecosystem and women’s mobility needs, creating a route for Gender Sensitive Smart Mobility in European Transport, which considers diversity of different groups. A Pan European observatory for gender smart transport innovation will provide a nexus for data collection, analysis, dissemination of gender mainstreaming tools and open innovation. TInnGO will lead research into a new era and use the knowledge to achieve impacts on Social, Economic, Environmental and European ambitions of growth, wealth and innovation.

PolyCE - Post-Consumer High-tech Recycled Polymers for a Circular Economy
PolyCE is a European Commission Horizon 2020 project enabling recycling of plastics from electronic waste for a more sustainable future
The global economy needs an immediate shift towards a circular economy model for plastic waste. It requires a systematic transformation that involves all actors in the value chain and encompasses the entire lifecycle of plastic materials. Although there are individual efforts to improve the collection and recycling of plastics in electronic waste (e-waste) the plastics value chain is still too fragmented, and recycled plastics are still perceived as unattractive to the end-user. For reference, the European Commission estimates e-waste to be one of the fastest growing waste streams in the EU, expected to grow to more than 12 million tonnes by 2020.
PolyCE (or Post-Consumer High-tech Recycled Polymers for a Circular Economy), a European Commission funded project consisting of a consortium of 20 expert organisations, has taken on the challenge of addressing this problem. More information can be found here.
AEOLIX - Architecture for EurOpean Logistics Information eXchange
The AEOLIX Platform represents a critical step forward for supply chain visibility and interoperability through the decentralisation of information sharing. AEOLIX cloud services provide connectivity between multi-actor data and in-house or cloud-based applications, processes and services, resulting in enhanced collaboration and interoperability, potentially across the entire transport and logistics sector.
This project was made possible through funded from the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme. More information can be found here.
The CHESS (Colleges and Higher Education Security Standard) project will provide a flexible architecture which embeds collaboration across three key groups of stakeholders in order to produce output of concrete, pragmatic and immediate value to the educational sector. The three stakeholder groups are: an Expert Advisory Group, a Colleges and Higher Education Institutes group and the CHESS Project Team. More information can be found here.
The Innovation to Commercialisation of University Research (ICURe) Cyber Security Project is funded by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Innovate UK and is delivered through SETsquared. The project seeks to examine cyber threats to organisations and builds upon previous research from the Department of Media, Culture and Sport. More information can be found here.
Network Northamptonshire Total Transport (DfT)
Total Transport is a Department for Transport funded initiative led by Northamptonshire county council in partnership with the University of Northampton. Key to the project are the identification of synergies that can be made across a county wide provision of sustainable public transportation. The outputs of this research formed the first global holistic procurement transport commissioning social enterprise co-owned by the project stakeholders (April 2017).
