Welcome to Delft Road Safety Courses

Supporting Safer Mobility

Road safety leadership training & capacity development for professionals in low and middle income countries.

About us

Our Vision

To nurture professional capacity in low and middle income countries to support the development and implementation of evidence-based road safety strategies and action plans that are relevant to each country’s unique local context.

Our Approach

Our courses focus on the core principles of the Safe System Approach and how this can be tailored according to local need. Participants are encouraged to think critically and use their own experiences in group discussions and peer learning.

Our Goal

We strive to develop and enhance participants’ road safety research skills and empower them in contributing to structures that support the organization and governance of road safety management in their countries.

Our Network

Through our vibrant alumni network, we provide opportunities for research, cross-border networking and knowledge sharing for ongoing capacity development of participants, their organizations, and their countries.

DRSC started as a collaboration between Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), SWOV (the Netherlands institute for traffic safety scientific research), the Post Academic Education Foundation, and the Road Safety for All Foundation.

With support from the FIA Foundation and Sensys Gatso, DRSC organised it’s first annual road safety course. 


With support of the World Bank’s Global Road Safety Facility, DRSC began organising annual tailor-made training courses in Brazil, Cambodia, and Ghana.


The FIA Foundation became DRSC’s core donor, supporting the annual course for road safety professionals from low and middle income countries.


DRSC is officially registered as a ‘Stichting’ according to Dutch Law, becoming a Netherlands-based NGO.

2020 onwards

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, DRSC began offering more online learning. Today, in addition to our core course, DRSC offers continuous learning and capacity development opportunities for our alumni through online webinars and discussion forums.
