Digital Roads of the Future



The Future Roads Programme at the University of Cambridge would like to invite you to join us in exploring the outcomes of the first year of the research fellowships as well as potential opportunities within the wider Digital Roads of the Future initiative.    

Future Roads Fellowships Programme intends to foster excellence in experienced researchers' training, mobility, and career development in advanced research into the digital and sustainable transformation of road networks.   

The first year of the Future Roads Fellowships has enabled 15 postdoc researchers from all over the world to establish close relationships with many industry partners, addressing the challenges within the road industry as perceived and developed by the industry. The Future Roads Programme Annual Review will include a review of the program's progress, presentation of the research advancements and achieved outcomes, and plans for the further development of the fellowship program and the broader DRF Initiative.
