ITSSI was interdisciplinary in terms of the academic team, but also in terms of stakeholders, including the local authority, Clinical Commissioning Group, the third sector, as well as the digital and transport industries. The 2016-2017 project was commissioned by Brighton and Hove City Council as one of the projects funded by the regional board “South East Area Transport Solutions” (S.E.A.T.S.) that in turn is funded through the Department for Transport’s UK wide “Total Transport Pilot Fund”.
Results of the project are of interest for policy, industry and research locally, nationally and internationally with the report outlining implications and further work for areas including policy, transport, mobility, smart and inclusive cities, health, data, digital and innovation.
