On February 22nd, 2016, the SafetyCube project held a workshop for European road infrastructure stakeholders in Brussels. The objectives of the workshop were to present the project activities to date and plans for the coming research steps, and to receive feedback from stakeholders concerning:
- user needs for the DSS to make it useful – also over time: what information is needed? how should it be presented? how could the system be accessed?, etc.
- “hot topics” on infrastructure safety so that the DSS addresses key issues, e.g. policy and research priorities, areas in need of cost-benefit analysis or evidence, etc.
The workshop started with presentations of the SafetyCube project and the SafetyCube approach on road infrastructure risks and measures. Then, during a discussion session, the participants gave detailed feedback on their wishes and questions on the DSS. Thereafter, the participants were asked to prioritize the infrastructure “hot topics”. This was done on five posters showing the “hot topics”. The workshop concluded with a synthesis of the discussions.
The collected feedback is very important for SafetyCube and our further work and we would like to thank all participants for their contribution.
Minutes and presentations from the day are available below.
