In 2014 Vias institute established an International Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB). ISAB’s main role is to advise the institute on its research strategy in the field of road safety. The ISAB members meet once a year and discuss the implementation of the strategy, the quality of the research and the possible options for the future.
