22 October 2019

Story from the FIA Foundation.

Road safety professionals from low- and middle-income countries took part in this year’s Delft Road Safety Course, supported by the FIA Foundation, to learn about new ideas and take home new ambitions for safer streets.

The Delft Road Safety Course (DRSC) is a cooperation between Delft University of Technology, SWOV Institute for Road Safety Research, Delft Post Graduate Education and Road Safety for All in Delft, Holland. The two-week-long post-graduate course is an evidence-based and data-driven programme designed to build capacity of road safety professionals in low- and middle-income countries based on the Safe Systems  approach.

Rita Cuypers, Partnerships Director of the FIA Foundation, said, “The Delft Road Safety Course is an exceptional programme that gives road safety specialists from around the world the opportunity to build both an academic and practical understanding of Safe Systems. The course also creates an international network to provide support and share knowledge to help make roads around the world safer for everyone.”
