The CASPER and EPOCh projects on child safety are organising a final workshop to present their research findings on child safety and to discuss future activities. It will inform the public about the outcome of the projects through presentations and demonstrators and give room to discuss future research needs for child safety.
Although significant achievements have been made in reducing fatalities and injuries in traffic accidents over the last decade, continued efforts are needed to bring the numbers down further. Motivated by this, the CASPER and EPOCh projects will address some aspects of child safety in vehicles.

As part of the European project REStARTS, four European Research Establishments in aeronautics have developed a set of educational materials for teachers and students of primary and secondary schools. The tools developed for teachers to use in the classroom are directly related to aspects of research in aeronautics.
This afternoon will be an opportunity to demonstrate the developments resulting from a close collaboration between the world of research and education.

The WakeNet3-Europe initiative promotes multidisciplinary exchange between scientific and operational specialists in the field of wake vortex turbulence. It is also working on how to ensure air transport safety with regard to wake vortex encounters despite increasing air traffic density and increasing diversity of the operational aircraft fleet.
After almost four years of intense activities of the WakeNet3-Europe team the 4th Major and Final Workshop “Wake Turbulence in Current Operations and Beyond” will be used to discuss recent achievements and remaining research needs in the field of wake turbulence.
