Llewelyn Morgan
Head of Innovation - IHub, Oxfordshire County Council

Llewelyn Morgan leads a service area within Oxfordshire County Council encompassing transport, planning policy and strategy, and early-stage scheme development. Llewelyn conceived Oxford Science Transit as an outward-focused research and innovation team, leading on the development of a more innovative mobility strategy for Oxfordshire. Initiatives to come out of this include; MaaS (Mobility as a Service), analytics and autonomous vehicles.

Llewelyn’s service area leads on the development and support of innovative collaboration projects in partnership with leading universities and private sector partners, and has established a strong reputation through its work on Innovate UK, Horizon2020 and EIB projects.  Recently this has included; the DRIVEN CAV2 project, a new V2G project, and several EV and CAV3 projects being delivered in partnership with universities and private sector partners.

Llewelyn’s focus on developing collaborative approaches to real world problems has resulted in collaborations such as; MobOx CIC, Culham City (AV Test Bed), and Oxford Open Data Platform development.  With Oxford City Council colleagues, Llewelyn has established the Smart Oxford working group with Oxford’s Universities, the Oxfordshire LEP and local businesses.  From this has come the “Smart City” vision for the Oxford City Region, providing the opportunity for innovative organisations to collaborate to design and deliver solutions for Oxfordshire’s challenges and at the same time develop worldwide market opportunities.
