The PIARC Global Road Safety Knowledge Exchange comes to an end!

Published on 25 January 2024.

Throughout the year 2023, PIARC boosted the knowledge exchange on road safety.

Nazir Alli, President of PIARC, has a message for you on the occasion of the closure of this project. Watch it now!

In 2023, PIARC has made it a point of honour to promote road safety, particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This is why the Road Safety Knowledge Exchange Project was set up, in collaboration with the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT).

This global project addressed issues relating to vehicles, speed, data, vulnerable road users, infrastructure, tunnels, management and human factors in order to improve road safety.
