We expand the work of the University of Northampton’s ‘Institute of Logistics, Infrastructure, Supply and Transport’ (LIST). SOCIETAL aims to further the University’s social impact; targeting the social benefits within its work, delivering empowerment through mobility, well-being from clean air/reduced congestion/healthy transport options, and improved access-generating employment opportunities in key local areas.
