Are you a professional dealing with road safety and mobility issues? Do you want to expand your expertise in this field and learn from other countries?

Road safety progress in the European Union has stagnated for the last four years. Only urgent measures will reduce the 500 deaths that occur on EU roads every week. The Safe System approach is internationally considered to be best practice in road safety and in the European Road Safety Summer School, we advise you on how to successfully implement this strategy in your country or region.

This five-day course will present an integrated approach to road safety, based on good examples from European countries, within a short time. There will also be ample networking and knowledge exchange opportunities.

The European Road Safety Summer School 2019 is an initiative of the Flemish Foundation for Traffic Knowledge (VSV), the Transportation Research Institute (IMOB) of Hasselt University, the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC), the Polis Network, and Road Safety GB. It will take place from 26 August to 30 August 2019 in Mechelen (Brussels North area).
