The ADAPT project has begun in earnest, and over the past six months we have made some significant progress on our initial project goals.
The Sustainable Transport Communication Dataset (STCD) is being constructed, with already some 56 entries, fully analysed as informal arguments, ready to be put to use in phase two of the project. We will be hiring our second Research Assistant in the coming months, who will have the exciting task of developing experimental studies using our fabulous new dataset.
Our intrepid leader, Kate Pangbourne, has been hard at work making connections between the ADAPT project and other leading research groups across the UK; including at the Leeds Crucible (three two day research labs across the University of Leeds promoting interdisciplinary research leadership), a workshop for the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency where she discussed behaviour change and communication, and meeting with her fellow fellows of the Living with Environmental Change network to share current cutting edge research in how to prevent, mitigate and cope with current and imminent changes in climate.
Now that the groundwork of the ADAPT project has started to come together, we can expect some significant research outputs to announce in the very near future, so keep your eyes peeled for conference papers and publications coming soon.
