Simon Sternlund - new member of SAFER's management team

We have a new acting member in SAFER's Management team and Scientific Council, Simon Sternlund from the Swedish Transport Administration. Simon will replace Matteo Rizzi during his parental leave. The involvement in the Vision Zero academy and its network of researchers, which is closely linked to SAFER, will also be led by Simon. The network identifies common research needs and possibilities that support the work in SAFER's research areas. Simon is currently also a PhD student at Chalmers University of technology and will defend his doctoral thesis "Traffic Safety potential and effectiveness of lane keeping support" on June 15, 2020.

Welcome Simon!
