This pilot website is one of the final results of DaCoTA. Its basis is led in the SafetyNet project. Both projects are funded by DG-TREN of the European Commission. The aim of both projects is/was to produce a framework and enhance road safety information for a European Road Safety Observatory (ERSO). ERSO helps policy makers, researchers and road safety advisors to find their way into the European road safety world.
The objective of SafetyNet, which was completed in October 2008, was to build the framework of a European Road Safety Observatory that should become the primary focus for road safety data and knowledge in Europe. When SafetyNet was finalised, the ERSO-website was transferred to the Road Safety section on the website of the European Commission, Directorate-General for Transport & Energy (DG-TREN). It is accessible by using the address: www.erso.eu.
DaCoTA is the follow-up of SafetyNet and is also funded by DG-TREN (now: DG MOVE) of the European Commission. The objective of DaCoTA is to add to the strength and wealth of information in the Observatory by enhancing the existing data and adding new road safety information. This project will be finalised in 2012. During the project, the updates of the ERSO website will be available on this website.
