AET Covid-19 Webinar: Tracking Future Trends After the Pandemic

After the Pandemic – Tracking Future Trends & Scenarios beyond COVID-19

Thursday 1 April 2021: 1800-1900 CEST (1700-1800 BST/WEST)

The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced massive shocks into the daily lives of individuals, communities and businesses across Europe, and resulted in multiple and complex changes to travel attitudes and behaviours. In addition, there are a number of pre-existing trends around commuting, remote working and online shopping, sustainability and technology, which have been sharply accelerated by years in a matter of months.

This AET webinar will explore these trends in more detail, consider what changes in travel demand and use of transport networks may outlast the pandemic, and how we can plan for a post-COVID future which is more uncertain and offers a wider range of options and impacts for policy makers, researchers and other professionals in the transport and mobility space.

This webinar will comprise thought-provoking presentations from three speakers which will set the scene for a discussion about the so-called ’new normal’ beyond COVID-19, and how we should prepare for future behavioural change and its impact on transport networks.

The discussion will be introduced by Jonathan Spear, Transport Policy and Planning Advisor at Atkins Acuity, and be focused on the following three speakers:

  • John Siraut is Director of Economics and Global Technology Lead for Transport Economics at Jacobs, UK.

  • John Pommer is Program Director of the Knowledge Platform on Mobility for Regional Authorities at CROW in the Netherlands.

  • Glenn Lyons is the Mott MacDonald Professor of Future Mobility at the University of West of England, Bristol, UK.

The webinar will be hosted on the WebEx platform. Please click on the link to the AET website and follow the link to register for the webinar:

The AET COVID-19 Working Group continues to encourage AET members and others to submit papers and reports describing their work on the pandemic response. These articles will be published on the AET website and will be used in planning the programme of webinars in 2021.
