Safety and security

We aim to improve safety and security on Europe's roads by reducing fatalities and severe injuries by 60% and reducing cargo lost to theft and damage by 70%.

Research priorities

  • Advanced engineering systems and risk-analysis methodologies for designing vehicles and infrastructure
  • Integrative approaches linking human elements, structural integrity, preventive, passive and active safety, rescue and crisis management.
  • Inherent design of vehicles/systems for safety and security (special focus on human-machine interfaces), use of intelligent safety systems and integrated safety.
  • Post-crash rescue technology and methods and new training systems to improve awareness of safety and security issues
