MRC McLean Hazel specialise in comparative and international research into cities and mobility, using both quantitative and qualitative methods.
We bring a unique combination of academic rigour, a global network of experts and practical on the ground experience to our research projects. We analyse transport and non-transport secondary data from all over the world, but also carry out primary research in many countries. We make good use of our professional networks of experts in putting together collaborative multi-disciplinary research projects.
Valid, reliable, innovative research underpins and informs all our work. We have designed methodologies and funding proposals for a range of clients, and have an excellent track record in winning EC Research Project funding.
We have pioneered the concept of mystery travellers to really test the customer experience of travel and visiting cities, bringing forward interesting and challenging results for clients.
As part of our commitment to thought leadership, MRC McLean Hazel and Department of Geography at St Andrews University successfully applied for a CASE Studentship into"Transport and Quality of Life" from the Economic and Social Research Council. As a result we now co-fund a PhD student (Sara Tilley) within the Department and are able to work together with the University on specific research projects. We also collaborate with a number of other universities and research institutions throughout the world, and are currently actively working with institutions in UK, Italy, Macedonia, Germany, Canada, USA and Brazil.
