You are now welcome 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.
