Details

RISER in a nutshell

Every year, 14,000 motorists die and countless numbers are seriously injured as the result of single-vehicle collisions on European roads. The number and severity of these accidents can be reduced through the establishment of European best practices guidelines.

RISER (Roadside Infrastructure for Safer European Roads) is an EU-funded research initiative to achieve a Europe-wide consensus on the design, implementation and maintenance of road safety devices based on a better understanding of collision parameters. The foundation of the RISER project is that improved data collection combined with the establishment of pan-European guidelines can reduce the number and severity of single-vehicle accidents. By providing a comprehensive input on the do's and don'ts of roadside equipment design, RISER comes at a crucial time in research on road infrastructure safety as a growing number of road authorities are seeking innovative approaches to reducing their road-related death injury and mortality statistics.

Final seminar (Budapest, 30 Nov. - 1 Dec. 2005)

Under the high patronage of the Hungarian Ministry of Economy and Transport, ERF and the RISER consortium are pleased to invite you to a free two-day seminar on safer roadside engineering held in Budapest (Hungary) on 30 Nov - 1 Dec 2005.

The purpose of this event is to discuss engineering good practices covering such areas as accident data analysis, preventive hazard identification and road safety audits. The presentations will be completed on Day 2 with on-site field demonstrations of roadside engineering techniques applied to road sections open to traffic.

On the occasion of this seminar, a copy of the final RISER guidelines summarising the result of two years of research work will be distributed to each participant.

Who should attend ?

The workshop is primarily addressed to road engineers , local and national road authorities, highway operators, traffic management consultancies and  road equipment manufacturers

Cost

The seminar is entirely free of charge. In addition, delegates from Central & Eastern European countries may benefit from vouchers covering part of their travel and accomodation expenses.
