Partners from the 14-country SENSoR project came together with ROSEE partners in Slovenia to continue the push for reduction of risk on roads in South East Europe.
A high-level briefing including Slovenian infrastructure minister Omerzel Samo, EuroRAP chairman John Dawson, and EASST president Emma Maclennan focussed on role of improved infrastructure in reducing injury.
A key theme was the need to connect the “left hand” of infrastructure investment with the “right hand” of spending on emergency response, health, long term care and insurance.
The mid-term SENSoR planning and reporting conference attracted 140 participants who heard that 3,150km of the Slovenian network and 3,600km of the Greek TEN-T network have already been inspected (click here to see results). Inspections in the other countries are underway, as are seminars and dissemination events aiming to raise public and political awareness of the road traffic injury epidemic.
