OUR MISSION: TO ENHANCE TRAFFIC SAFETY
“Zero injuries in road traffic” – that’s our drive and overall goal. We are the open innovation arena where researchers and expertise work together to create safe mobility. Our traffic safety approach covers people, vehicles and the infrastructure – and together we contribute to safer road transports and smarter, more sustainable cities.
SAFER is a research and competence centre founded in 2006 and comprising about 30 partners from the industry, academia and society.
