U.S. Government Special Awards of Appreciation to SAFER related researcher Nils Lübbe from Autoliv

We are proud to announce that Dr Nils Lübbe, Director of Research at Autoliv, today received the prestigious U.S. Government Special Awards of Appreciation.

The award was presented at the 2019 Enhanced Safety of Vehicles (ESV) Conference in the Netherlands. Dr Lübbe has made an exceptional research contribution to integrated protection for Vulnerable Road Users. As his research has shown, best protection is offered when both active and passive protection measures are combined. His work has advanced safety assessment programs around the world. He continues to quantify safety benefits of new technologies and to identify residual problems, combining the benefits of pre-crash and in-crash interventions to maximize protection levels on the way to Vision Zero.

The award is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in cooperation with 2019 Enhanced Safety of Vehicles (ESV) Government Focal Points, and participating country representatives.
