The TSU and individual members of staff have developed many connections within the University of Oxford and beyond.

In the UK context we are positioned as the major transport research group embedded within a Geography department. This means that we can benefit from the latest thinking in the social sciences and environmental studies. Within the University of Oxford we collaborate with researchers in various departments and schools, including the Saïd Business School and the Department of Engineering.

Outside Oxford we collaborate with colleagues in many UK universities who work in disciplines such as geography, urban planning, engineering, public health and innovation studies. There are also intensive and long-lasting links with universities and consultancy firms across the EU, in Israel, the USA, and increasingly in Asia and Latin America. These partnerships have resulted in many collaborative research proposals to international funding agencies, as well as joint publications.
