We produce a number of industry reports and thought-leading white papers, covering all aspects of the sectors and services in which we work.

Explore our reports from our UK and Europe business: 



Connected & Autonomous Vehicles (CAV)

CAVs are a subject of huge interest both in the UK and internationally, as companies and cities try to understand what the future holds when these vehicles are widely available. Much focus has been made on the future – from platooning and connected traffic lights to last mile automation – and the possible travel solutions that may exist.

Journeys of the Future report

Journeys of the Future

The transport sector is at the beginning of a period of significant disruption, with new technologies, products and services fundamentally shifting customer expectations and opportunities. Intelligent mobility, as an enabler, has the ability to create opportunities that will improve the current state of the transport system.

The Skills Deficit

The critical importance of infrastructure to the UK’s global competitiveness, economy, businesses and society is undisputed. Our report highlights some of the very real consequences industry could face if we fail to address the UK skills shortage effectively in the UK. Collated with the views of 40 experts from infrastructure owners and their supply chain, academia and industry bodies, we focus specifically on the consequences of four key sectors: water, energy, transport and digital infrastructure.

Female Engineers report

Britain’s got talented female engineers

To help encourage more women into engineering, Atkins led a unique survey in partnership with the Royal Academy of Engineering, Rolls-Royce and BP to ask 300 professional female UK engineers what inspired them to choose a career in engineering and how they feel about their choice. This report provides fascinating insights, statistics and views which we hope will prove to be a hugely popular tool in inspiring a new generation of female engineers.

Future Proofing Cities

Future Proofing Cities

Half the world’s population, 3.5 billion people, now live in cities and this is forecasted to reach 60% by 2030 and 75% by 2050. So how do we create liveable and inclusive cities fit for the future? Our report, produced in partnership with the UK Department for International Development and University College London, assessed 129 major cities across Africa and Asia and was developed to help tackle risks to long term prosperity and growth.
