Purpose and goal

The aim is to boost research and innovation for safe cycling to support the restart of the Vision Zero. The project aimed to understand the reason behind why so few proposals are submitted and to contribute for more relevant proposals to emerge.

Expected effects and result

The project could identify two main contributing factors to explain the lack of applications. First, the content of the FFI program was not well-known by relevant actors. Our activities contribute to increased awareness of the program. Second, the finance model was found to be a huge obstacle to apply. Industrials partners are interested in the research proposal, however, in the actual context of an economic boom, they do not have enough resources to do the research and the priority is too low. Our recommendation is to decrease the amount of private finance from 50% to 25%.

Planned approach and implementation

The workshop organised on the 23rd of Maj was a catalyst to reach several goals. People who earlier received a negative answer had one more a chance to present the research, to receive feedback and to find new partners to make their proposal stronger. New actors could present their research ideas and get the opportunity to find relevant partners to join and to find industrial partners willing to finance. The workshop contributes also to show the program board the amount of great ideas and people interested. The accident analysis was perfomred by a deep analysis of STRADA data.
