Safety and Security in Mobility – Thematic Research Summary published

Safety and Security in Mobility – Thematic Research Summary published

Project research results from the TRKC database are analysed according to our 30 transport themes. The policy implications of the projects are compiled into Thematic Research Summaries. These reports are regularly updated as more information from completed research projects from European and national research programmes becomes available.

We are proud to announce the publication of the latest Thematic Research Summary from our series of new updates, each one focused on a single transport theme. It is available for download in the 'Publications' section of the TRKC website:

  • The Thematic Research Summary on Safety and Security in Mobility deals with the level of danger that is socially acceptable in a real-life situation, taking into account other factors such as efficiency, cost, liberty and comfort, as well as systems, rules and procedures aimed at preventing, discouraging and detecting negligent, irresponsible or malicious human acts which threaten safety.
