The European Road Safety Charter, led by the European Commission, is the largest civil society platform on road safety. The Charter was drawn up in 2004. Since then, almost 4000 public and private entities from all over Europe have signed onto the Charter and joined its network. Vias institute is one of them and has been a member for many years. Moreover, in 2018, the European Commission gave Vias institute the role of ‘leading partner’. Together with ETSC and the Greek Road Safety Institute Panos-Mylonas, we form the ERS Charter team.

The Charter’s diverse community of members is made up of companies, associations, authorities, schools, universities, and research institutions. All members work to improve road safety on European roads. The Charter brings its members together through the website, quarterly newsletter, and social media. The members also inspire and learn from each other during workshops and seminars that the Charter team organizes. The Charter encourages its members to take action to advance road safety, with the ultimate vision of drastically reducing the number of road casualties in Europe.
