QTTSC, IATSS hold roundtable talk on road traffic safety
At the event, experts from QTTSC, IATSS, the National Traffic Safety Committee, Qatar Ministry of Interior (MOI) and Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) discussed policies, strategies and technologies for improving safety conditions in the two countries.
“It aligns with CENG’s commitment to raise community awareness of the importance of traffic safety,” CENG Dean Dr. Khalifa Al-Khalifa said. “Road safety represents an important pillar of CENG research plan as there is significant increase in the traffic flow on the roads in Qatar. It is critical that we enhance our strategic partnerships with local and international organizations to find sustainable solutions for road safety risks and challenges that stand at the heart of the welfare of the people of Qatar.”
IATSS project leader Professor Hideki Nakamura gave a presentation at the event about the status of traffic safety in Japan.
“Our partnership with QTTSC on projects and programs related to traffic safety contributes to pursuing advanced studies in areas that benefit the society in Qatar and Japan,” Nakamura said.
