Writing of the full proposal in cooperation with the project coordinator; Contract Negotiations; Administrative project management, setting-up and hosting the project website and keeping track of the project technical and financial progress.
To realize the targets for road safety in the future, stakeholders indicate the necessity of integrating research capacities currently existing or emerging as far as possible. For this purpose COVER brings together coordinators of four FP7 projects in the field of crash biomechanics: CASPER, EPOCh, THOMO and THORAX.
The objectives of COVER are:
The biomechanical know-how from these four projects embedded in numerical and experimental tools will enable the design and evaluation of new (improved) vehicle safety technologies.
Facts & Figures
About 41,600 people were killed and more than 1.7 million injured in European road accidents in 2005. Although the number of road fatalities has declined by more than 17% since 2001, more efforts will have to be made to meet the EU's target of halving the number of deaths in the period between 2001 and 2010.
