SPRING 2016

Our Spring 2016 Newsletter had a transport flavour, with articles on our success winning a place on Highways England's SPaTs framework, our evaluation of new drug driving legislation and our work developing modelling of speed and flow on the strategic road network. The Network Performance Model, NPM, which we develop and maintain on behalf of Highways England, is becoming an increasingly powerful tool to inform strategic interventions to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow.

We also report on the recruitment of natural resources economist, Stefano Andreola, to the team, and our success as an integral part of the consortium delivering the Centre for Evaluating Complexity Across the [water, energy, food, and environment] Nexus. Membership of this exciting, policy led centre, will keep up at the forefront of evaluation practice as it relates to complex systems.

SUMMER 2015

Our Summer 2015 Newsletter reported on our programmes of presentations across Whitehall of our innovative work modelling reform of the water abstraction licencing system using agent based behavioural modelling. It also described research work we have been carrying out with Copper Consultancy exploring the benefits of early engagement around major construction projects and a project we have carried out with RAND Europe for Innovate UK exploring future transport scenarios.

CHRISTMAS 2013

Our Christmas 2013 Newsletter provides news and views on projects and events that have been occupying our time during 2013.

This includes our work on Abstraction Reform for Defra and Safety Risk Assessment Training on the Strategic Road Network for the Highways Agency. We also welcomed a new recruit and held our 2013 Modelling Seminar entitled - "Modelling Complex Systems".

SPRING 2011

Our Spring 2011 newsletter reported on our 2010 client event at the HQ of the Magic Circle and featured three recent projects that illustrate the breadth of work we are involved in:

  • Developing a traffic flow simulator and virtual reality model of the UK's first managed motorway scheme (the M42) for the Highways Agency and DfT
  • Researching how local authorities are working with partners to improve health and social care services for elderly people on behalf of the DWP
  • Conducting independent quality reviews of value for money reports produced by the National Audit Office.

WINTER 2009

In our 2009 newsletter we reported on our move to new offices in Russell Square and reported on three very different projects:

  • Performing an interim value for money review of Irish Rail's 15 year Railway Safety Programme
  • Helping to develop a risk-based Climate Change Adaptation Strategy for the Highways Agency
  • Producing guidance on how to understand and communicate public risks based on the experiences of the Risk and Regulatory Advisory Council.
