SafetyNet was an Integrated Project funded by DG-TREN of the European Commission. The objective of the project was 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.
SafetyNet has made new proposals for common European approaches in several areas including exposure data and Safety Performance Indicators. It has extended the CARE database to incorporate the new EU Member States and has developed new fatal and in-depth accident causation databases. It has also developed new statistical methods that can be used to analyse combined macroscopic and other data.
This Observatory website will be incorporated within the Commission website.
22 institutes from 17 countries have cooperated in the SafetyNet project. This project lasted for four and a half years and has been completed in 2008.
