On Wednesday 14 November 2018, The Ministry of Transport and the Transport Knowledge Hub held the 1st Transport Research Colloquium in Wellington.

The purpose of the Transport Research Colloquium is to connect research and policy communities by providing an opportunity to meet and share insights on transport topics of contemporary importance to New Zealand.

The half-day pre-Transport Knowledge conference event included a number of presentations, world café, and discussion sessions, through which topics including: the current focus and work of the Ministry, the role of the Chief Science Advisor for Transport, research topics and themes – including the refresh of the Ministry of Transport’s research strategy, and mechanisms of support for research, were discussed in a collaborative way.

Representatives from the Ministry of Transport (MoT), the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), the Royal Society Te Apārangi, and other organisations attended to build networks between the various organisations and participants.
