The 2023 iRAP Innovation Workshop will be held 5-6 October 2023 at the Prague Congress Centre, Czech Republic. It is being held in association with the XXVIITH World Road Congress from 2-6 October being organised by PIARC (World Road Association) and the Czech Road Society, supported by the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic and the Slovak Road Association. As always, the Innovation Workshop is made possible thanks to the generous support of the FIA Foundation.
Road safety is critical to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Road crashes remain the biggest killer of young people worldwide and transport produces around 25% of man-made carbon emissions. Innovative policies, tools and action are needed to meet international and national road safety and sustainable transport targets through solutions that deliver for both people and the planet.
Promoting active mobility is central to decarbonizing urban mobility. But as more people move to sustainable modes such as walking and cycling, exposure to conflicts with large, high-speed vehicles increase. It is therefore essential the safety of all road users is at the heart of transport planning and policy. Policy experts are embracing Safe System principles in support of Vision Zero goals and the potential for 5-star users in 5-star modes of transport on 5-star roads at safe speeds to provide the framework for that to occur.
Now in its 10th year, the Innovation Workshop will be a 2-day invitation-only event for registered delegates of the World Road Congress. With the theme “Safer Roads for People and Planet”, presentations and discussions will explore innovations in road agency leadership, data, investment planning and finance that can be used to implement change and deliver on the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 and the Paris Agreement. It will bring together leaders and experts in road safety innovation, policy, technologies and investment from across the world.
In addition to the Innovation Workshop, delegates at the World Road Congress will have access to more than 60 Technical Sessions, Workshops and Foresight Sessions, as well as the Congress Dinner and networking opportunities with 40+ Ministers, 3,500+ delegates and 300 exhibitors from 120 countries.M
