Final Report - APSN (Network of Excellence on Advanced Passive Safety)

Project ID: 506257
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final summary report of the APSN project, which followed in the footsteps of two previous EU thematic networks on vehicle passive safety: PSN and EVPSN2. The overall aim of APSN was to mobilise the European scientific and business expertise in vehicle passive safety to accelerate improvements in road safety in order to reduce the annual road victims for the European Union. This was to be realised by the creation of a permanent form of organisation in order to continue the activities among the partners started under the umbrella of the EU funded Network of Excellence (NoE) and moreover do this in a self-sustainable way.

The report begins with some background on road safety issues and accident data in the EU and motivation for further improvements. It later explains the project's objectives and then presents the results, findings and progress made.
