The detailed programme for the FERSI Conference is now available. The conference programme includes plenary sessions with keynotes by Geertje Hegeman, Head of the Road Safety Department at the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure & Water Management, Pernille Sølund Ehlers from the Danish Road safety Council and Graziella Jost from the European Transport Safety Council. It also offers poster pitches, parallel sessions with paper presentations on various road safety topics, a social gathering in Madurodam, a round table discussion and a wrap-up session with an award ceremony, finally ending with a goodbye lunch.
The international conference will be held on October 6 & 7 in the Hague and is open to researchers, policy makers and road safety professionals from road authorities and road safety observatories but also professionals otherwise involved in road traffic and road safety (enforcement, engineering, consultancy, education). The conference will allow for discussion on promising ways to facilitate the decision making and implementation process of proven (cost-)effective but politically sensitive road safety measures.
