ERTRAC - European Road Transport Research Advisory Council
ERTRAC’s objective is to help maximise the effectiveness of public and private research into road transport.
According to ERTRAC, road transport is a key driver of the European economy: a major contributor to EU employment and the competitiveness of many other industrial sectors, it represents some 11% of total European GDP.
As a significant contributor to research in this area, ERTRAC recently announced its strategic research agenda for the next two decades.
eSafety Effects Database
The eSafety effects database has been compiled by eSafetySupport in order to maintain the uptodate knowledge of the effects of different eSafety systems or intelligent vehicle safety systems. The database is based on studies, conference papers and articles concerning the effects of eSafety systems, and particularly their safety effects.

European Commission – DG Information Society
DG INFSO is responsible for the eSafety programme which is a joint initiative of the European Commission, industry and other stakeholders and aims to accelerate the development, deployment and use of Intelligent Integrated Safety Systems, that use information and communication technologies in intelligent solutions, in order to increase road safety and reduce the number of accidents on Europe's roads.
European Commission – DG Transport and Energy
The road safety programme of DG TREN aims to ensure a sharing of responsibilities, and in accordance with the competences of each party involved (EU, Member States, regional and local authorities, industry, transport companies and private users), this programme aims to encourage road users to improve their behaviour, to make vehicles safer, and improve road infrastructure. It provides for the setting up of a European Road Safety Observatory within the Commission. Lastly, it proposes that all the parties concerned, whether public or private, should subscribe to the European Road Safety Charter.
European Conference of Ministers of Transport, ECMT
Recent trends in road accidents have induced the Council of Ministers to set up specific quantitative targets for road safety such as the reduction by 50% of the number of deaths in road accidents for all ECMT Member countries by 2012. To this end, the Group on Road Safety will intensify its activities in response to the seriousness of the situation as outlined by the Council of Ministers, and among other things conduct a review of any new approaches the ECMT might adopt towards road safety. Proposals derived from this exercise could be incorporated into the Conference's new three-year work programme.
European Cyclist Federation
The ECF stimulates and organises the exchange of information and expertise on bicycle-related transport policies and strategies as well as the work of the cyclists' movement.
