6th ICTCT Early Career Researcher Course

6-7 November 2012


In the framework of the 25th ICTCT workshop, we will organise our 6th ICTCT Early Career Researcher Course. The aim of the International Course on Road Safety Research is to broaden the views of young researchers by providing them with an overview of road safety research areas, knowledge of research approaches in other fields of investigation, and examples of inter‐disciplinary research work.

The road accident phenomenon is complex and so are road safety management systems. As a consequence, road safety research is multi‐disciplinary and covers such areas as epidemiology, statistics, in‐depth accident analyses, biomechanics, behavioural studies, sociology, economics, etc. “Early career” researchers (i.e. researchers new in the field of road safety) are usually limited to a specific field of investigation in which they work in‐depth, without getting the broader picture of what is being done in road safety research and how the different investigation fields complement each other.


Target audience of this course are early career road safety researchers from all disciplines, in all sectors (Public Health, Transport, Urban Planning, Education, Law, Academia, etc.) and from all countries are welcome to the International Course. The course language will be English. In order to facilitate interactions, the number of participants is limited to 15.
