Academic Engagement Events

The Transport Systems Catapult (TSC) and its university partners various events throughout the year including workshops, seminars, business breakfasts, and conferences. We believe that a strong working partnership between the Universities, as well as the other organisations we work with will allow us to build a unified and well established Academic Network for IM.

Event Highlights

IMCreate Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Hackathon 2017

On the 1st-2nd July, TSC hosted the 3rd IMCreate Hackathon, based around the theme of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV). Teams of data scientists, coders, creative types and business thinkers from the worlds of academia and business attempted to solve transport challenges over a 26-hour period. The event was co-sponsored by IMPART and Tech Mahindra. The three finalists Team Rostek, Team Sim IQ and Team Space Scanners competed at the final on 12th July at the London Transport Museum with winners, Sim IQ receiving the £2k prize. TSC is now helping SIM IQ to assess options for the development of their solution, including the formation of a start-up company and incubation at the Digital Engineering and Test Centre, hosted at Loughborough University’s London campus (The University of Loughborough is part of our IMPART University Partnership Partners).
