25th ICTCT Workshop

8-9 November 2012

The 25th ICTCT workshop will be held at Hasselt University on 8 and 9 November 2012. The conference theme is ‘Road safety in a globalised and more sustainable world – current issues and future challenges’. The annual ICTCT workshop provides a forum to discuss innovating theories and concepts in Road Traffic Safety research and brings together international experts in an open-minded and friendly atmosphere. conference has been organised annually in different locations, both in Europe and beyond, for the last 25 years.


Up until now, road safety research and practice focused on tackling operational safety issues. A lot has been achieved, but it seems that the law of diminishing returns is setting in. It is now time to put road safety research and policy development in a wider context to make a better connection to future mobility options, globalisation, sustainability, liveability, health, as well as to help create a more durable and robust environment to live in. Not only in the Western world, but also in Third World countries. Road safety policy development needs to be underpinned by good research and facts. It also has to include interrelations and interaction with neighbouring fields, e.g., to make it possible to keep the elderly mobile, to allow children to go to school by themselves and thus learn about the world. This ICTCT workshop aims at putting road safety facts, data and visions in a wider context of economical, ecological and social aspects of modern-day and future life
