grad cap 1245541 1919x910The international EU-MENA final conference in Traffic Safety will take place in Salt in Jordan at Al – Balqa University on the 11th of October 2018. The conference will summarize the actions, results and present the new Master Programme in Traffic Safety along with new teaching tools and methodology.

MENASAFE project consortium gathered top-level road safety teachers from Spain, Sweden and Poland to design and develop Traffic Safety Programme adapted and implemented by the leading Universities in Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. During these past 3 years the road safety experts have worked together, analyzing existing programmes and job markets, tailoring the Master Programme to the problems, needs and local traffic characteristics. Advance teaching techniques were developed which will be supported with hi-tech laboratory equipment and software to make the Master Programme highly specialized and competitive on the academic market having a positive impact on the MENA Countries and their economies in terms of road accidents reductions. The new Master Programme in Traffic Safety will produce a new generation of master students in Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon with excellent theoretical and practical skills in traffic safety in terms of design, operation, planning and management.
