EU Road Safety Exchange

25 July 2019

Story from the European Transport Safety Council.

The EU Road Safety Exchange is a three-year twinning project (2019-2021) that supports improved institutional capacity and exchange of knowledge and best practice on road safety topics between EU Member States.  The project focuses on six Member States identified as having the highest potential for achieving significant improvements in road safety.

At the core of the project is a series of twinning activities whereby leading EU road safety professionals exchange effective road safety strategies and policies with their counterparts from the selected Member States. The activities will include thematic workshops, webinars, study visits, as well as a best practice seminar in Brussels.

General objective

The general objective of this project is to reduce the overall number of road deaths and serious injuries on EU roads and help close the road safety gap between EU Member States by providing support to those with the highest potential to make significant improvements.

Target audience

The primary target audience are decision-makers and road safety professionals working in the selected countries. The project should help improve coordination of road safety policies and implementation of effective measures. Participants will receive support in arguing for and introducing measures that lead to rapid and tangible road safety benefits, as well as engaging in long term structural improvements.
