ICORSI (the Independent Council for Road Safety International) launches a serie of international dialogues on current issues in road safety, starting October 20, 2020.

Each dialogue features an expert on the subject who will be in conversation with interlocutors like Dinesh Mohan, Honorary Professor or Geetam Tiwari, Professor at IIT-Delhi and Members of the VREF's network, on issues facing us in road safety interventions and research around the world. These dialogues are organised in collaboration with Universidad del Valle, Colombia.
