Road safety causes concern
To address these issues of road safety, the European Commission, through the COST-Transport programme is organising the second European Road Research Conference in Brussels between 7 and 9 June 1999.
Every year, 1.7 million injuries are reported on the roads of the European Union and the estimated direct cost associated with accidents is 45 billion euro
The main objective of the conference is to bring the results of high-quality, road-transport research programmes and projects within Europe to the attention of politicians, policy makers, road operators, local authorities and industry, thereby encouraging their implementation.
Further information on the conference as well as European projects mentioned in the programme can be found on CORDIS news service:
