The European Union aims to reduce road deaths and serious injuries by 50% by 2030. In order to achieve this goal, it is crucial for EU Member States to collaborate and exchange knowledge on effective policies. To this end, the European Commission and the European Parliament are launching the EU Road Safety Exchange project for a second three-year phase. The project will connect road safety experts from various European countries to tackle specific road safety challenges through twinning activities.
A high-level event in Brussels will mark the official launch of the project on 18 October 2023. You are warmly invited to join us.
The project and its launch event will cover various themes, including the safety of infrastructure, effective enforcement, the protection of vulnerable road users, and in-depth collision investigation. The event will bring together high-level officials and senior transport experts from participating countries, as well as international road safety organisations and stakeholders.
Participation is free but spaces are limited.
Note: two other relevant road safety events are taking in place in Brussels on 18 and 19 October:
