ICP SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME "ROAD SAFETY IN THE SOUTH"

THE NEW ICP CONNECT APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN! YOU CAN APPLY UNTIL 1st FEBRUARY 2022.

The ICP Connect "Master of Transportation Sciences - Traffic Safety" is a 2-year multidisciplinary master programme with a unique focus and approach to Road Safety in Developing Countries. The programme is supported by VLIR UOS and has 10 scholarships available each year.

Students are trained to identify transportation and road safety issues in order to create innovative solutions by using an integrative approach based on three pillars: the individual (dealing with the human behaviour in traffic and how to influence it e.g. intentional and unintentional riskful behaviour such as drunk driving or cognitive impairments), the environment (e.g. creating self-explaining roads and infrastructure that minimizes crash impact) and the society (e.g. societal norms and translation into policy and enforcement measures). Road safety in this programme is approached as a cross-border field, incorporating elements of psychology, economy, urban planning, environmental studies, engineering and more.
