From 30 August to 8 September 2021, our first Road Safety Summer School – RSSS was held at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences, University of Zagreb with the support of our dear sponsors which provided scholarships to majority of our participants.
The program of the RSSS included six days of theoretical classes and two days of practical work. During the summer school, participants had the opportunity to learn about the main road safety factors (human factor, road and its environment, vehicle) from 20 world-renowned experts coming from eight countries.
The participants also had the opportunity to see live crash test, conduct a crash analysis in PC crash, and to independently conduct road safety audit and road safety inspection. All that hard work paid off because at the end of the program the participants acquired 2 ECTS points, a lot of knowledge, new friendships and networks, and overall had an unforgettable experience. In addition to teaching activities, Road Safety Summer School organized a tour of the city of Zagreb and a day trip to Plitvice Lakes National Park.
The first generation of Road Safety Summer School in Zagreb included 17 students from 11 countries and four continents. This is something we are especially proud of, and we are looking forward to our next Summer School, hopefully even better.
