Child Occupant Protection seminar - Latest knowledge and challenges in future mobility

SAFER invites to a whole day seminar on the latest research on child occupant protection. You are welcome to attend the fifth biannual seminar Child Occupant Protection - Latest knowledge and challenges in future mobility.

About fifteen international researchers will share their state-of-art child safety research, discussing future opportunities, with the target to set the future agenda for child occupant protection. We want to create a positive dialogue between all different experts, researchers and users involved in child safety in cars. The focus is on children aged 4-12.
