Welcome to learn how collaboration can help save lives!

As a pre-event to the 3rd global ministerial UN-conference on road safety SAFER invites the delegates to a dinner event to share knowledge about how traffic safety research can be performed successfully in collaboration.

The participants will receive a summary from SAFER Vehicle and Traffic Safety Centre at Chalmers on effective traffic safety measures responding to the societal challenge on traffic safety. The event will furthermore create a deeper understanding on one of the key mechanisms behind how to improve traffic safety through a successful collaboration model between society, industry, academia and research organisations.

Concrete cost-effective implemented and future measures for increased traffic safety will be presented and the participants will be able to meet leading traffic safety experts within SAFER's network.

As a delegate you will bring home knowledge about:

  • Vision Zero – basic principles
  • Traffic safety measures today & tomorrow
  • A successful collaboration model to work towards a common goal
  • System thinking for traffic safety – practical examples on implementation
  • Build understanding for needs to move ahead in traffic safety: why fast-footed regulations and investments (including grants) are needed and their benefits, by showing examples of opportunities
  • Enabling the future: regulatory & research needs

REGISTRATION: Sign up no later than February 10, 2020 on the link below
