Identification of Hazard Location and Ranking of Measures to Improve Safety
The target of the project is the performance of a "project pilot" on two lane rural roads. The project will be able to define methodologies and procedures for the analysis of actual road safety conditions and to arrange maintenance or restoration projects in order to improve safety.

ICTCT - International Coorperation on Theories and Concepts in Traffic safety
ICTCT is an association developed out of an international working group of safety experts with the aim to identify and analyse dangerous situations in road traffic on the basis of criteria other than past accidents, analogous to the methods of air and industrial safety.
The Injury Database (IDB) is a database on non-fatal home, leisure and sports accidents. It is an internet database set up by DG SANCO under the Injury Prevention Programme in 1999, in order to provide central access to the data collected in the Member States under the EHLASS Programme (European Home and Leisure Accident Surveillance System). IDB is the only data source in the EU that contains sufficient detail for developing preventive action against the rising tide of home and leisure accidents in Europe. The purpose of the IDB is to facilitate injury prevention in the Member States and at EU level - through trans-national aggregation and harmonization of data, and through reporting and benchmarking.
IFP - International Federation of Pedestrians
The goals of IFP are to promote and to defend the pedestrian's right to full access and mobility.
Impaired Motorists, Methods of Roadside Testing and Assessment for Licensing
IMMORTAL specifies a research programme concerning the accident risk associated with different forms of driver impairment and the identification of 'tolerance levels' applied to licensing assessment and roadside impairment testing (including drug screening). Thus, IMMORTAL is focused on two societal needs that both contribute to quality of life, namely mobility and safety. IMMORTAL will provide added community value in terms of the generalisation of conclusions relevant to EU policy and standardisation of driver testing and assessment methods with respect to EEC directives.
Integration of Navigation and Anticollission for Rural Traffic Environment.
The aim of IN-ARTE is to develop an integrated autonomous on-board system to be able to build an extended view of the environmentin front of the vehicle, integrating signals from anticollision radar, road recognition CCD sensors and navigation map, in order to guide and warn the driver through an optimum HMI in a series of rural areas related traffic tasks, such as intersection handling, speed selection while negotiations, curves, obstacle detection, etc
The aim of In-Safety is to develop intelligent, intuitive and cost-efficient combinations of new technologies and traditional infrastructure best practice applications, in order to enhance the forgiving and self-explanatory nature of roads.
INRETS - Institut National de Recherche sur les Transports et leur Sécurité
The INRETS is a state-financed scientific and technological body under the dual administrative supervision of the Ministry of Research and the Ministry of Transport
INRETS five main missions
- To collect and develop scientific knowledge through a global approach of transports system.
- To carry out evaluative and advisory studies.
- To contribute to the general trend of higher education.
- To promote the research results within the framework of economic partnerships.
- To circulate the acquired knowledge among a wide audience.
Le réseau des centres de documentation et des bibliothèques de l'INRETS met à la disposition des chercheurs et spécialistes du domaine des Transports des fonds d'ouvrages et des collections de périodiques pluridisciplinaires.

Institution of Highways and Transportations
Originally established in 1930 as the Institution of Highway Engineers before changing its name in 1987 in recognition of sector developments.
The IHT is the foremost learned society in the UK concerned specifically with the design, construction, maintenance and operation of sustainable transport systems and infrastructure. It aims to provide a forum for the exchange of technical information and views on highways and transport policy; to produce practical technical publications; to provide specialist advice to government and other bodies; to make roads safer for the travelling public; and to encourage training and professional development to meet today's requirements.

Instytutu Transportu Samochodowego
MOTOR TRANSPORT INSTITUTE
The Institutes main objectives are: conducting, co-ordinating and popularising scientific research as well as development work on the road transport, working out new technical solutions, organisational and economic ones concerning mainly such subjects as road traffic participants. safety and environmental protection. Also fulfilling other tasks particularly important to obtain goals set out by social and economic state policy.
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the Highway Loss Data Institute are independent, nonprofit, research and communications organizations funded by auto insurers and dedicated to reducing highway crash deaths, injuries, and property losses.
International Transport Forum
In May 2005, Ministers agreed in Moscow that the ECMT should be transformed into a publicly recognised international Ministerial forum, designed to increase the understanding of the importance of transport. In Dublin, in May 2006, they established the International Transport Forum.
The aim of the Forum is to foster a deeper understanding among policy makers and wider audiences of the role of transport as a key to economic growth and of transport’s impact on the environmental and social dimensions of sustainability.
INTRAS - Instituto Universitario de Tráfico y seguridad vial
NTRAS (Institute of Traffic and Road Safety) is an interdisciplinary research centre of the University of València dedicated to the scientific and applied research, the development and innovation, the training and advising in the field of road safety and traffic accidents, mainly from the point of view of the human factors and the driver’s behaviour with the vehicle, the infrastructures and the police controls.
IRCOBI International Research Council on Biomechanics on Injury
Road transport deaths and injuries have been a byproduct of increased motorisation since the introduction of the motor car; but had gone largely unnoticed by policymakers until three decades ago. Therefore, a small group of researchers from different European countries agreed to combine two programmes one on accident biomechanics and the other on human tolerance to impact into the science of the kinematics of impact injuries. These deliberations resulted in the formation of the International Research Committee on the Biokinetics of Impact (IRCOBI) under the leadership of Prof. Bertil Aldman who chaired IRCOBI for almost 20 years. In 1992, this group changed its name to the International Research Council on the Biomechanics of Injury to reflect more accurately its overall mission.
