BRSI

 

 

IBSR/BIVV - Belgian Road Safety Institute - The Belgian Road Safety Institute is a private organization with a social goal, that is partially funded by public sources. The core mission of the institute is to improve road safety and reduce the number of casualties and fatalities from road crashes. Ever since its creation in 1986, BRSI has initiated and deployed a large and varied  number of activities that are related to road safety: from awareness campaigns over research activities to fitness to drive assessments and driver improvement courses. Our activities are connected with the three factors that determine road safety: the road user, the vehicle and the road (traffic environment).

Currently BRSI employs some 110 people and its operation activities are structured into three pillars. The “Knowledge Centre” (= research and analysis department) has a multilingual team of some 25 experienced researchers with various profile (e.g. master/doctoral degrees in engineering, transportation science, psychology, criminology, health sciences, statistics and political sciences). Its research activities span 12 research lines covering the broad field of road safety. Some research is also undertaken in connected fields such as mobility, security and health. The Department “Public Affairs, Innovation and Regulatory” includes experts who monitor innovative developments and anticipate future trends in transport modes and systems. The Department “Advice & Consulting” (including organization of campaigns, driver improvement courses, reintegration assessment and fitness to drive assessment) has long-lasting experience in education and training development based on evidence-based knowledge.

BRSI is an active member in several international organizations (such as FERSI, HUMANIST, CORTE, ETSC, IRTAD, TPI …).

IFSTTAR(1)old, news, imported

IFSTTAR - The French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks

The harmonious development of human societies depends on our capacity to live together and share public space and time, quite as much as resources. Society is becoming not only increasingly mobile, urbanized, globalised and digital, but also more and more participative, environmentally responsible, aware of the limited nature of its resources and safety conscious. In addition – at least in developed countries – populations are ageing rapidly. Each of these factors is a challenge for the 21st century.

IFSTTAR has made a non-exhaustive list of the areas where it could make a valuable contribution:

- Mitigating climate change, adapting to it and limiting energy demand

- Protecting our built heritage and making it versatile, increasing the resilience of systems

- Preserving biodiversity and natural resources

- Enhancing living environments and reducing socio-spatial inequalities at various scales

Responding to demographic changes, improving public health and human safety

- Adapting to and implementing technological and socioeconomic changes to improve the design of public space and transport

Its role of advancing, disseminating and exploiting knowledge in the area of human and freight transport, urban and non-urban spatial planning and networks, both physical (transport, energy, water) and non-physical (expertise and knowledge), makes IFSTTAR able to play a part in taking up these major challenges which it will tackle while giving a central role to considering people in their spatial and social setting.
