• Global activities

  • DRSC aims also at supporting educational and research programmes in LMICs, often at universities.

    We may provide a range of supporting activities:

    • provide educational material to improve current road safety courses
    • give assistance to universities to develop a new road safety master course. This may involve  courses given by guest- lecturers or developing e-lessons.
    • give assistance to develop post-graduate courses
    • give assistance to develop a research programme related to a course
    • organize a tailor-made version of the Delft Course in your country, in your region, at your office/institute/university, with a mix of local and international lecturers.
    • Where appropriate, activities will be organized in association with FIA Foundation.
  • For practical reasons we try to build on the contacts with alumni of the Road safety course in Delft. As of 2012 we received over 95 participants from all over the world.

    Assistance that is provided ‘on distance’ (electronically from the Netherlands) can mostly be given free of charge. Local assistance (in your country) will have to be paid for (guest lecturers, course coordination).

    Welcome to Delft Road Safety Courses for Africa

    Delft Road Safety Courses (DRSC) is a joined initiative of the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), the Foundation of Postgraduate Education (PAO) at TU Delft, SWOV Institute for Road Safety Research,  Road Safety for All (www.delftroadsafetycourses.org) and FIA Foundation. These Dutch based organizations started the DRSC in 2012 with training courses for road safety professionals in low- and middle income countries.

    Global Road Safety Facility of the Worldbank will sponsor this course.

    Road crashes form a large and fast growing problem, especially in low- and middle income countries (LMIC). Road crashes kill 1.3 million people a year  and 20 – 50 million people get injured in a road crash every year.
