SafetyNet is an Integrated Project funded by DG-TREN of the European Commission. The objective of the project is to build the framework of a European Road Safety Observatory, which will be the primary focus for road safety data and knowledge, as specified in the Road Safety Action Plan 2003. The Observatory will support all aspects of road and vehicle safety policy development at European and national levels. It will make new proposals for common European approaches in several areas including exposure data and Safety Performance Indicators. It will extend the CARE database to incorporate the new EU Member States and will develop new fatal and in-depth accident causation databases. It will also develop new statistical methods that can be used to analyse combined macroscopic and other data.
Upon completion of the project it is expected the Observatory website will be incorporated within the Commission website.
22 institutes from 17 countries cooperate in the SafetyNet project. This project lasts for four and a half years and will be completed in 2008.
