FERSI online symposium

Event date: 
14 Oct 2021

On 14 October 2021 (13:30-15:30 CET) FERSI will organise an online symposium: Implementing evidence-based road safety measures, removing barriers and enhancing public support. The symposium is a prelude to a physical conference on the same topic that will be held in the autumn of 2022.   

Effective but controversial measures 

The October 2021 symposium will consist of three presentations on vulnerable road users, speed and road safety management. Practitioners/decision makers who have been successful in implementing effective but sometimes controversial road safety measures will share their experience. How did they manage? How important was the scientific evidence? What can others learn from their experience?   

Speakers are:

  • Álvaro Gómez Méndez (Director of the Spanish National Road Safety Observatory)
  • Yiannis Kefalogiannis (Deputy Minister of Infrastructure and Transport in Greece)
  • Pernille Sølund Ehlers (Senior Advisor at the Danish Road Safety Council)

From an international, European and scientific perspective  

A panel (together with the speakers and the audience) will put the issues in an international, European and scientific perspective. The panelists are: 

  • Nhan Tran (Head Safety and Mobility, Department of the Social Determinants of Health, WHO)
  • Matthew Baldwin (Deputy Director-General DG MOVE and European Coordinator for Road Safety and Sustainable Mobility, EC)
  • Astrid Linder (Research Director Traffic Safety at VTI and Adjunct Professor at Chalmers University of Technology)
