Abstract

Sustainable transport is integral to our societies, there are persistent challenges to its sustainability. This paper proposes strategies for cooperation among academia, industry, and transport sector through transport research dissemination by establishment of transportation professional networking group to provide a platform for sharing of experiences and exchange of ideas amongst transport professionals and researchers. This group has organized five international conferences on transportation globally which required the dissemination of innovative researches and approaches that brought about safe and sustainable mobility solutions. With proper coordination, transport experts are poised to help solve problems at this level of complexity and importance. The paper concludes by highlighting the availability of potentials and critical mass in academia, government, and the private sector to attain global stature and tackle workforce development challenges in transport sector which depends on how the research dissemination and publication ecosystem is nurtured. The study made a couple of recommendations that would enhance collaboration in order to ensure that fundamental advances are made in the areas of focus for workforce development and sustainability of transport infrastructure as technological advances and their impacts on infrastructure planning.
