ICORSI (the Independent Council for Road Safety International) launches a serie of international dialogues on current issues in road safety, starting October 20, 2020.

Each dialogue features an expert on the subject who will be in conversation with interlocutors like Dinesh Mohan, Honorary Professor or Geetam Tiwari, Professor at IIT-Delhi and Members of the VREF's network, on issues facing us in road safety interventions and research around the world. These dialogues are organised in collaboration with Universidad del Valle, Colombia.

The programme can be found here.

The Independent Council for Road Safety International is a not-for profit organization that provides independent authoritative advice on global road safety policies by road safety scientists that have no financial conflicts of interest.

ICoRSI aims to:

  • Provide rapid, independent and evidence-based information on road safety policy and practice to policy makers and the public.
  • Strengthen the capacity of safety professionals and policy makers to understand existing evidence and undertake new research.
  • Facilitate in capacity building for safety professionals and policy makers in the field of transportation safety.
