The line-up of speakers and workshops includes a keynote presentation by Professor Wandi Bruine de Bruin from the University of Leeds, who will talk about behavioural decision making, and a presentation by health psychologist Anna Sallis from Public Health England, who will talk about large-scale interventions using ‘nudge’ techniques.
Other speakers include professor Brendan Gough who will discuss male road users and masculinities; doctor Shaun Helman who will talk about novel lighting designs to increase motorcycle safety; doctor Marc Fabri who will discuss a design thinking approach to behaviour change; and Liz Smallman who will outline her experiences engaging children in long-term behavioural change interventions.
Dr Fiona Fylan, from Brainbox Research, said: “We have attracted an impressive range of speakers to bring a fresh perspective and the latest knowledge on changing road-user behaviour.”
The delegate rate for the conference is £75 and accommodation at the hotel starts at £65 per night. Brainbox Research is subsidising the conference to facilitate attendance by those working in academia and the public sector.
