About Us

The Forecasting Knowledge Hub is a community of practitioners, modelling specialists and policy advisers that provides a forum for information sharing and collaboration on modelling/forecasting techniques, methodologies and related issues across the transport sector.

We run a range of seminars and other discussion forums with the aim of sharing knowledge and experience to help improve understanding and capability of transport modelling and demand forecasting.

  • To provide a forum for sector modelling specialists to present and discuss topic issues.
  • To provide advice and guidance to enable the enhancement of knowledge and capability in the transport sector especially in the modelling and forecasting area.
