Automotive Research Project Completed

January 2009

The end of 2008 saw the conclusion of the 'OPTIVe' automotive research project on which Patrick was working as an advisor. The project was funded by the Swedish government and involved Chalmers, Gothenburg and Luleå universities with Volvo acting as an industrial partner.

 

As well as acting as general advisor to the project, Patrick led research activities in the area of driving attitudes and behaviours, creating a driver segmentation that has already become internationally recognised. To request a free copy of Patrick’s latest paper on driver segmentation please contact us and we will e-mail one to you.

 

He said, “It was great to work on this project and to advise a team of very talented and dedicated individuals. What was achieved was tremendous and far exceeded the expectations of those funding our research. I feel very honoured to have been part of such a successful and exceptional team.”

National Health Service Initiative Launched

January 2009

This month sees the official launch of a new health initiative which Patrick has been working on with the National Health Service. The initiative, which will initially be implemented in Hull in the north of England, will tackle a number of health issues including: drinking, smoking, diet, exercise and mental health.

 

Patrick said, “I am delighted that the government has been so supportive of this initiative and that we have had such a good level of co-operation from local health trusts. If this succeeds it will provide a blueprint for similar programs which can be rolled out across the rest of the country.”

 

The launch will be attended by a government minister as well as local council representatives and players and officials from Hull FC rugby club.
