Road Safety Training Scholarships; The Transportation Research Institute (IMOB) of Hasselt University organizes international training programme on road safety.
This programme is titled "Road Safety in Low and Middle Income Countries: Challenges and Strategies for Improvement."
It is co-funded by the VLIR-UOS (Flemish InterUniversity Board - University Development Cooperation).
During the ITP, 3 major topics are dealt with:
With regard to behaviour, participants learn how to explain traffic and travel behaviour and are taught how to set up sensitization campaigns or educational programmes which can be used to influence behavior.
With regard to infrastructure, participants study infrastructural designs, go through the life cycle of an infrastructural project and evaluate how to modify existing infrastructural projects.
Afterwards participants study the impact of infrastructure on road safety and make a link between behaviour and infrastructure: to what extent does road design influence human behaviour in traffic and reversely: how can behaviour contribute to infrastructural design?
Finally participants explore mobility and road safety policy. If new developments arise in cities or in the country, we look at how to attune road safety and mobility policy, taking into account several aspects such as economy, demography, ecology, spatial planning, etc.
During the international training programme, participants are acquainted with certain theories and methods and are taught how to apply them. At the end of the course, participants are able to formulate guidelines, recommendations and measures to policy-makers.
Getting acquainted with experiences from similar countries and good examples from Europe is undoubtedly a benefit of this course. This way, participants can determine more efficiently which measures can be effective for their own country.
VLIR-UOS funds a total of 10 scholarships, which enable 10 participants to take part in the course for free. Only participants from countries on the VLIR-UOS country list can be considered for a scholarship. The following countries are on the VLIR-UOS country list:
