SAFER Thursday lunch seminars during spring 2023 - the schedule is set!

Jan, 03 2023

The schedule for our SAFER Thursday lunch seminars during spring 2023 is now set. The appreciated hybrid concept continues, and we look forward to seeing our partners here at the SAFER, including at the networking lunch, and of course also online for those of you can’t make it to the office. 

The main objectives with the seminars are to share knowledge about our research and other topics related to saving lives in traffic. We aim for inspiration to create new projects and boost dialogue and collaboration in our network.

This term features a range of interested topics! We kick off with presentations from the Swedish Electromobility Centre on January 26th. Continuing, you´ll get results from our ongoing SAFER pre-studies, an update regarding the upcoming Euro-NCAP protocol and strategy ahead as well as a presentation from the Swedish Emergency Services. We will also learn about how climate change will impact on the mobility system in the HEAT-project as well as about the new upcoming standard about safety for automated vehicles (ISO TS 5083).

SAFER researchers that are included in our contact list will get personal invitations to the seminars. Lunch for those of you that attend onsite at SAFER is served from 11.30 and the seminars will be held in hybrid format 12:00-12:45. You do not have to sign up to the event if you attend online, but registration to the lunch is needed. If you are a SAFER partner but not currently active in the network and would like to join the community, please contact Mikael von Redlich ( to be added to the invitation list.

Don't miss the opportunity to learn and network, a warm welcome to our seminar series, beginning January 26!
