Delft Road Safety Courses

In September 2019 the eighth version of the international course Road safety in low and middle income countries was given at Delft University of Technology. Road safety for all initiated the course in 2011 and since then supported the course organization and the programme.

This course is organized by Delft Road Safety Courses (DRSC), a cooperation between Delft University of Technology, SWOV Institute for Road Safety ResearchDelft Post Graduate Education and Road Safety for All. As of 2015 DRSC is supported by the FIA Foundation.

Since 2016 DRSC is a foundation according to Dutch law; it is a not-for-profit organization working on capacity building in LMICs. All DRSC partners are represented in the Board of Directors.


As of 2019 prof Divera Twisk (Queensland University of Technology, CARRS-Q, Australia) is appointed courseleader of the course in Delft and responsible for the content of the course and the selection of lecturers. .

The course intends to provide up-to-date  road safety knowledge to professionals from LMIC’s. In ten full days a group of 20-25 students receives a comprehensive post-graduate training, given by a team of international lecturers. Together with our alumni we support follow-up activities, i.e. focussing on the development of local courses and related actions.
The course receives  high ratings from the participants.

 

In addition to the annual course in Delft, DRSC is offering tailor made courses locally in LMIC’s inspired by the course in Delft. Alumni of the Delft course can play a central role in the organization of such national courses and also provide a number of lectures. In last years local courses were presented in Ghana (3 times) and Brazil..
