Sweden is to host the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety on 19–20 February 2020 in Stockholm. The conference marks the end of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020 and the starting point for continued collaboration on road safety. The aim is to reach global consensus on guidelines for continued international collaboration on road safety up to 2030. SAFER has been awarded the honorary task of arranging two agenda items in the official program.

Borderless research to save lives – a dinner event on how Vision zero can be addressed by collaboration
The participants will receive a summary from SAFER Vehicle and Traffic Safety Centre at Chalmers on effective traffic safety measures responding to the societal challenge on traffic safety. The event will furthermore create a deeper understanding on one of the key mechanisms behind how to improve traffic safety through a successful collaboration model between society, industry, academia and research organisations.

Presentations by SAFER partners will take place to help contribute to the understanding about the success factors behind collaboration as a key tool to save lives in traffic. On behalf of VIRTUAL project coördinator Astrid Linder (VTI) will be present to talk about ‘Human Body Models’.
