Design School awarded a TEMPUS project
Professor Andrew Morris and Dr Jo Barnes from the Design School will collaborate with the University of Rome and the National Technical University of Athens to help the east European country develop a Masters degree in Road Safety for their own universities.
Loughborough will receive a £100,000 grant for the project, whose aim is to produce road safety professionals for the future, in an attempt to cut the number of fatalities on Belarus’s roads.
The estimated number of deaths on their roads is 14.4 per 100,000 people compared to the UK rate of 3.7.
“The UK's fatalities figure is one of the best in the world, but there is clearly room for improvement in Belarus,” said Professor Morris, a member of the renowned Transport Safety Research Centre in the Design School.
