Royal Award for Thatcham

26 November 2008

 Thatcham's contribution to safer roads was officially recognised today, as the research centre received a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for its commitment to the promotion of technologies aimed at reducing the number of accidents on the road.

Thatcham now joins an elite list of international organisations whose efforts in improving road safety have been similarly acknowledged since the prestigious awards were founded by The Prince in 1987.

The award was presented by Adrian Hobbs, former Director General EuroNCAP in recognition of Thatcham’s research on whiplash and ESC (Electronic Stability Control) that the award recognises.
