Projects

Phaeton project (submitted for consideration) 

Phaeton aims to elaborate an innovative training toolkit for further vocational training of traffic psychologists with particular focus on driver improvement courses (DIC). The idea was derived from the recent research studies and the requirements of DIC training providers . They claim the current educative measures to be uneffective, due to the out-dated methods that do not correspond with the needs and communication styles of the participants. Didactic training of traffic psychologists belongs to further vocational training, which so far has never dealth with development of training methods in the field in entire Europe. Phaeton will fill the gap providing the psychologists with interactive tools.

Prosim project (submitted for consideration) 

The project’s main objective is to develop a curriculum for postgraduate education in traffic psychology that would be shared by the EU member states and to define the basic requirements for the implementation of such a training programme. The training of traffic psychologists that meets the highest quality standards, follows a unified structure, reflects the latest knowledge, and is provided all across Europe will significantly increase road safety, as traffic psychologists assess, select, and rehabilitate drivers. The failure of the human factor is the most common cause of traffic accidents. It is the traffic psychologists’ work with drivers and other road users that may help in eliminating such failures. We are building on the assumption that each road injury or death is unnecessary and preventable.

ADAPT - MitigAte Distraction-relAted Problems in Traffic safety (submitted for consideration) 

The project primarily focus on factors that may reduce or increase road user attention to the road traffic situation. It classify and analyse different possible types of distractions and provide specific analysis for the different distraction types, where relevant. It covers the attention/distraction of different road user groups including vulnerable road users.
