The 8th Annual International Conference “Smart Mobility – The Future of Sustainable and Green Transport” was held in hybrid mode on 20th January 2022. It was organized by Tempulli Academia and Kosovo Association of Motorization (AMRKS), supported by the Kosovo Insurance Bureau and convened more than 120 participants and over 20 local and international experts in the field of Transport and Traffic who participated as presenters.
Olivera Rozi from the EuroRAP Management Committee presented EuroRAP’s support for road safety in Europe. Olivera focused on the explanation of iRAP’s Star Rating model and highlighted also iRAP’s Training and Accreditation system. A lot of interest was drawn also by EuroRAP’s and EIRA’s (European Institute of Road Assessment – EuroRAP; EuroRAP’s subsidy company) transnational projects: project RADAR – Risk Assessment on Danube Area Roads successfully finished towards the end of 2021 and project SABRINA – Safer Bicycle Routes in Danube Area which is focusing on safer bicycle infrastructure on long-distance EuroVelo routes in Danube Area, which runs until the end of 2022.
The conference conclusions include: “Government institutions are requested to approve the relevant legislation and to open legal base for the development of Kosovo’s road scheme and their classification according to the stars of safety standards. These actions are already possible as EuroRAP has licensed AMRKS from Kosovo as a local partner for the implementation of the National Road Safety Action Plan according to the criteria and safety standards of European protocols.”
