Road safety professionals are being invited to register for the 2020 European Road Safety Summer School, which is now taking place digitally.
Presented in English, the annual summer school is a partnership initiative by Road Safety GB, the Transportation Research Institute (IMOB) of Hasselt University, the VSV (Flemish Foundation for Traffic Knowledge), the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) and Polis.
The 2020 edition was due to be staged in Mechelen, Belgium, on 24-28 August – but will now take place online due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The course will present an integrated approach to road safety, based on good practice examples from a number of European countries.
Topics to be covered in the programme include road safety strategies (the Safe System approach), strategies in education and awareness raising, infrastructure, technologies and enforcement.
Road Safety GB is represented on the agenda, with Jeremy Phillips, research director, presenting ‘Road accident statistics for a road safety policy’ as part of a session on infrastructure and data (26 August).
Meanwhile, Liz Brooker, chair of Road Safety GB, will present ‘Understanding the road user’ as part of a session on 27 August.
The delegate fee for the whole five-day course is €250, with individual day tickets from €75.
