This group aims at producing knowledge for public authorities, users, general public and industry on the transport issues in terms of people's safety and on how state policies can be effective in this field. It focuses its work particularly on socio-political and epidemiological dimensions. In accordance with the priorities of the government, road safety will come first.
This operational group has three main objectives:
- Capitalise on, valorise and discuss knowledge already produced on the subject and applied but not formalised
- Foster new investigations, approaches to problems, make new assumptions to work on road safety
- Create an enlarged research group to better analyse conditions (information, training, actions, etc) in order to tackle road safety problems.
Five themes have been defined within this sub-programme:
- Socio-policy of safety (focusing on risks linked to road use)
- Conditions of knowledge production in transport safety to understand how data are produced and propose new sources of data and analyses
- Individual behaviour in public and private transport
- Risks in transport linked to health: driving capacities linked to illness, under the influence of medicines, drugs, etc
- Risks linked to freight transport: analysis of improved safety in freight transport.
See main programme form for Predit 3 for details.
