Safety in tunnels, thematic network on development of european guidelines for upgrading tunnel safety
SafeT is a "Safety in Tunnels" Thematic Network on development of European guidelines for upgrading tunnel safety. The European Thematic Network is funded by the European Commission in the 5th Framework Programme.
The overall objective of the project is the formulation of safety arguments for selecting certain design elements or for recommending certain dimensions. Main output of SAFESTAR will be recommendations for design guidelines or possible standards on the basis of road safety considerations. SAFESTAR will concentrate on roads that can be part of the TERN network, i.e. primarily motorways, express roads and major interurban roads. In addition, some attention will be devoted to urban conditions.
SafetyNet - building a European Road Safety Observatory
The EU target of a 50% reduction in fatalities by 2010 will only be achieved by the introduction of the most effective countermeasures. It relies on the existence of basic knowledge of crashes and their causation and the availability of road safety data to monitor and assess performance. The EC has expressed the demand for a "Road Safety Observatory" in its 2001 White Paper and other public documents. This Proposal is for an Integrated Project that meets those demands. When complete the data resources developed within SafetyNet will revolutionise the EU approaches to road safety.
This proposal is for an ambitious and exciting project that will bring together all of the most experienced organisations within the EU to assemble a co-ordinated set of data resources that together will meet the EC needs for policy support. The Road Safety Observatory will enable the Commission to monitor progress towards targets, identify best practise, and ensure that new regulatory and other safety actions will result in the maximum casualty reduction. All data assembled or gathered within the project will be available over the web to the entire road safety community.
Social attitudes to road traffic risk in europe
The SARTRE project was conducted at the beginning of the 90s. Scientist researchers from the main national Road Safety research bodies in Europe, co-operated to explore attitudes and reported behaviour of car drivers in their respective countries, with help of FERSI and support from EEC. Representative surveys were carried out in each countries on the basis of an identical questionnaire with the same methodological criteria. The rough results have been presented and commented in a former publication.
Ministry of Transport is a leading institution of state administration of transport and communication branches which elaborates legal acts and policy planning documents regulating the branch. It provides the implementation of the transport policy.
SAVE (TR1047) is a Transport Telematics EU project that aims to develop an integrated system capable of detecting driver status problems which may indicate an imminent danger of an accident or other emergency. In such cases, the system will inform the driver, thesurrounding traffic and (if necessary) an Emergency Centre. If the driver is seriously impaired and incapable of safely controlling the vehicle, the SAVE system will automatically manoeuvre the vehicle to the roadside, where effective help can be provided.
Road safety in school transport
Every day millions of children need to displace from home to schools. This displacement can be made through different modes: private cars, school transport, public transport, walking and cycling. Whereas special EU wide statistics on accidents during the school travelling are not available, considering the distribution of accidents of children over a normal work day, it is clear that on their way to and from school, there is a potential risk for children to be involved in an accident.

Improve road safety in south, east & central europe
The overall aim is to contribute to a long-lasting improvement of transport safety in the “SEC-Belt”, i. e. the Southern, Eastern and Central European countries. Hence, this project seeks to translate a European safety vision into practical measures to improve the safety of transport users within the SEC-Belt Countries. The project will raise awareness for the introduction of measures within six priority areas: user behaviour, vehicle technology, road infrastructure, road technology, information and databases, evaluation of national road safety policies.
Since 1983, EG-Liaison, part of Senter, shows you the way within the complex fields of European subsidies. It is free and independent. The project advisors of EG-Liaison provide information, advice, courses, and training. In addition, EG-Liaison helps you in the search for (research) partners. Its purpose is to strengthen the position in Europe of Dutch companies and organisations.
Slovenská Správa Ciest
Slovenská správa ciest (hereinafter referred to as „SSC“) is an independent non-profit organisation established on 1 January 1996 by the Ministry of Transport, Posts and Telecommunications of the Slovak Republic (hereinafter „MTPT“) that executes for motorways, express ways, 1st, 2nd and 3rd class roads („roads“ or „road network“) transport planning, keeping of central technical databases, central databank, technical development, including related conceptual, coordination and methodological activities, administration of 1st class roads and land owned by the Slovak Republic, including investment activity for 1st class roads.
Harmonisation of in-vehicle speed alert system
The SpeedAlert initiative is mainly the result of the previous work carried in the SpeedAlert committee. The consensus reached among the different public authority and industry actors is that in-vehicle speed information and warning system can significantly contribute to road safety. To increase drivers awareness of speed limits and recommendations will reduce the number of vehicles with non-adapted speed and consequently reduce the number of speed related accidents.

The SUNflower+6 project aims to identify differences in the road safety performance of different European countries, by a comparative study of the development of road safety. In the SUNflower project this approach has been applied successfully for the SUN countries (Sweden, United Kingdom and the Netherlands), that have safety records that are among the best in the world. Using the SUNflower-methodology, the study is continued and extended with three Southern European countries or regions (Greece, Portugal and Catalonia) and three Central European countries (Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovenia).
The SUPREME project focuses on best practice measures in the field of road safety. The objective of the project is to identify best practice measures currently in place in Europe and to communicate these measures to policymakers.
