AIRSO National Conferences in August 2017

Details of the forthcoming AIRSO National Conferences in August 2017 are now available below

Academic Road Safety Conference booking form 2017 – Tuesday 29th August 2017, Jurys Inn (Hinckley), Leicestershire

Chairman – Dr Lucy Rackliff, Aston University

The aim of the conference is to build a community around academic road safety research, regardless of the methodological approach taken, or the discipline from which researchers come. It is hoped that this could help to build collaborations and partnerships, to identify and successfully bid for research funding, and facilitate an exchange of ideas, with the ultimate aim of improving safety on the roads. In order to begin to build a picture of the work currently being done in universities, we are keen to encourage as many researchers as possible to consider presenting their work.
