Conference will share innovations in road user behaviour

A two-day conference later this year will share some of the latest thinking in behavioural research and how it can be applied in road safety.

‘Innovations in Road User Behaviour Change’ (28-29 November) is being organised by Brainbox Research, which specialises in researching how to change road user behaviour and evaluating interventions people use to make the roads safer.

At the conference Brainbox will present some of its latest work and facilitate a series of workshops covering a range of topics including behavioural change techniques, evaluating the effectiveness of e-tools (e.g. apps), analysing qualitative data, increasing survey response rates, and critically appraising the quality of research.

Brainbox is also interested to hear from people or organisations who would like to present research at the conference.

It is particularly interested in proposals that are reflective, rather than those that give a step-by-step explanation of projects. Examples may include collaborative work, using behaviour change theory in a practical way, and adapted tools for different stakeholder groups. Examples of working across traditional geographical boundaries or internationally are also welcome.

For more information about the conference contact Amanda Jewell at Brainbox Research on 0113 238 0157.

    Perhaps they can concentrate on finding out why some 25% of drivers look left first at T junctions before they drive out and cause a SMIDSY.
