The 2021 iRAP Innovation Workshop will take place online on 7th and 14th October 2014. The International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) is co-hosting the “Data Driven Innovation to Halve Global Road Deaths by 2030” workshop with the Regional Road Safety Observatories in Africa (ARSO), Asia-Pacific (APRSO), Ibero-America (OISEVI), Europe (ERSO), and Western Balkans (WBRSO).
Effective action, policymaking, and investment will require accurate road safety data collected through transparent, rigorous, and efficient methods that meet the global safety standard for benchmarking and comparison across time. The Regional Road Safety Observatories supported by iRAP and other intergovernmental organizations, aim to accelerate country-level improvements in data collection, analyses and decision making.
The 2-part online event will bring together global innovation, policy, technical, and road safety leaders, along with investment experts, with the capacity to implement change and eliminate high-risk roads. The Workshop will explore the data need and shine a light on the cutting-edge practice and emerging research and innovation in data collection, partnerships, and programmes. A global challenge requires a global solution and the regional road safety observatories present an opportunity for joint regional efforts and economies of scale. Partnership opportunities for efficiencies of scale in resourcing and implementation will be investigated.
