Upcoming Policy Forum seminars

We have an exciting programme of seminars usually held in Central London (most take place near Baker Street). Our thirteenth was held in June 2014.

Following a summer break we will be returning on Tuesday 2nd September with our fourteenth seminar on Protected Junctions for Cycling. We'll discuss different designs, what works and what doesn't, what can be done now and what regulations need to change for the future. Our expert panel will include John Dales (Urban Movement), Brian Deegan (TfL), Phil Jones (PJA) and the Ranty Highwayman. Book here.

Our fifteenth seminar will be entitled Current Cycling Research and will take place at 6:30pm on Tuesday 23rd September. A panel format will involve five academics talking about their work for ten minutes, each followed by ten minutes Q&A. The evening will conclude with brief reflections on relationships between policy, research and advocacy. As with our other seminars, this event is free and open to the public, but you need to register in advance here. Our panel:

Ian Garrard, Brunel University - on a study exploring how much space drivers give cyclists wearing different types of clothing

Anna Goodman, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine - on research looking at the relationship between new walking and cycling routes, and levels of physical activity

Katrina Jungnickel, Goldsmiths College - on a project studying the bike, the bloomer, and the female suffrage movement in late 19th century Britain

Alan Latham, University College London - on a study exploring how people use cycle infrastructure in London, and what that tells us about cycling

Jo Wood, City University London - on research analysing hire bike journeys, and what that tells us about men's and women's travel choices
