4-5 December 2014, Palazzo Ducale – Genoa, Italy
It is now time to register to be able to attend the conference on Transport Safety Research, on 4-5 December 2014, in Genoa, Italy.
This Conference, convened by the Italian EU Presidency and the European Commission, will gather researchers, stakeholders, transport professionals and policy makers from the different transport modes, to assess the future needs for transport safety, and identify priorities for research and innovation activities in Horizon 2020 and beyond.
The conference will address both the safety challenges specific to each mode, common issues and concerns that cut across them – notably human factors, automation and data management – taking into account societal challenges, policy requirements, technological developments and economic benefits.
This event is expected to provide useful input towards the definition of a shared European R&I agenda, with pointers to be taken into account in the preparation of next Horizon 2020 Work Programmes, with a view to ensure the proper deployment and implementation of safety solutions resulting from research activities.

The conference's main objective was to raise awareness about the Citizens’ Observatories concept and present the first outcomes of the five Citizens Observatories projects after two years of work.
The conference aimed at setting the scene and providing a forum for discussion about the role and opportunities for active citizen participation in environmental monitoring and policy making. The event provided opportunities to engage with experts and practitioners working across a range of European citizen science initiatives and policy making bodies, with two round tables addressing the concept of Citizens’ Observatories from a strategic as well as from a technical point of view.
The discussions held at the conference shown that Citizens' Observatories have a great potential to complement in-situ observation networks with novel Earth observations and ICT techniques, involving citizens in environmental monitoring using their own portable devices or do-it-yourself sensors. Thanks to the vast array of ubiquitous information and data they can provide, Citizens’ Observatories can allow authorities to obtain evidence and inform policy making, while providing citizens with opportunities to address environmental issues affecting them at different scales and to influence decision making.
Agenda, summary and presentations of the conference are available below.
