Grants available to develop technology which helps to reduce road offending and improve road safety

The Road Safety Trust has launched its 2020 major grant programme under the theme ‘How can technology be used to reduce road offending and improve road safety?’

Grants are available for up to three years and can range up to £200,000.

Projects which aim to address in a mixture of practical and research ways the use of technology to reduce road offending and improve road safety can apply. The main objective of any project should be to help protect vulnerable road users.

The Road Safety Trust funds projects which:

  • generate new knowledge about what works
  • translate ideas into new measures
  • influence road safety policy and practice
  • support partnership working or collaboration

Eligible projects might include evidence reviews, trials, roll-outs, evaluations and support for the profession through guidance or other resources.

Who can apply?
UK-based organisations, public and professional associations, registered charities and university departments may apply for grants. Private commercial enterprises, Community Interest Companies and not-for-profit businesses will be considered for funding as long as the schemes or initiatives proposed are for charitable activity, are for public benefit and are in line with Road Safety Trust priorities.

How to apply
You can apply now on the Road Safety Trust website.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on 14 May 2020.
