Understanding walking and cycling using a life course perspective (2013)
Thesis
Jones, H. Understanding walking and cycling using a life course perspective. (Thesis). University of the West of England

Understanding of how walking and cycling change over time has been restricted to looking at time series data that reveals aggregate change, and time-limited longitudinal studies of individual behaviour. This thesis presents a study of the change and... Read More about Understanding walking and cycling using a life course perspective.

Presentation / Conference
Drew, H., Ritchie, F., & King, A. (2013, December). How do knowledge brokers work? Implications for policy and practice in the case of WERS. Paper presented at 3rd International COSINUS ‘Innovation Systems and the new role of Universities’

The paper highlights the successful role played by knowledge brokers in bridging the gap between research and policy development. Drawing on the work of Oldham and McLean (1997) on the role of knowledge brokers, the paper identifies that intermediari... Read More about How do knowledge brokers work?
