TYROSAFE Final Seminar

Event date


Tyrosafe (Tyre and Road Surface Optimisation for Skid resistance and Further Effects) is a Coordination Action, which started on the 1st of July 2008. The main objectives of the TYROSAFE project were to raise awareness, to coordinate and prepare for European harmonisation and to optimise the assessment and management of essential tyre/road interaction parameters (skid resistance, rolling resistance, noise emission) in order to increase safety and support greening of European road transport.

Primary focus was on:

- Improving Road Safety: Reducing occurrence of accidents through safer roads with better skid resistance

- Facilitate the Greening of Road Transport: Road surfaces and tyres optimised for low rolling resistance, resulting in lower CO2 output, and for low noise emission

- Introduce European Harmonisation: Comparable road behaviour across Europe leading to reduced human error

Bringing together representatives from the road related industry, road decision makers, owners, operators, stakeholders, contractors, academia, the European Commission, and researchers at national and local level, the TYROSAFE FINAL SEMINAR will feature the development, assessment, and final results of the TYROSAFE project.

For this occasion, we would like to invite you to the new “SQUARE Brussels Meeting Centre”, Glass Entrance, rue Mont des Arts, 1000 Brussels, on the 10th of June 2010, for a half-day seminar and evening cocktail.
