IP D1 Paper on links to national and international activities
This deliverable on links to national and international activities is a compilation of the important forces surrounding the active safety international arena. In a large project such as IP PReVENT, many external factors need to be taken into account in order to bring a broader picture to the research project and its topics.
An overview of preventive safety applications and the technologies used helps the reader to understand the extent of the research topic. We also describe the different stakeholders and their involvement in the project.
We describe the political environment around the road safety policy. A description of the regulatory bodies is given with focus on the main road safety contributors.
Finally, we describe the challenges and potential impacts represented by preventive safety applications for the member state in the European Union and beyond.
In the annexes, we review the EU15 member states policies according to their road safety agenda. We link to the national authorities and other relevant national bodies. A list of the most relevant EU and national projects is also provided.
This document was specially dedicated to the European activities as a first stage of international cooperation. In a next revision, it is planned to include further information about relevant on-going national projects and national policies related to active safety, covering EU25.
