Reducing Motorcyclists’ Casualties In Wales

Summary

Welsh Government logoThe ‘Innovation in Reducing Motorcyclist Casualties in Wales' project is a new national competition launched by the Welsh Government to drive forward Wales' innovation agenda.

 

This competition is funded by the Welsh Government and Innovate UK, and jointly run with RoSPA Wales. The competition will identify innovative projects that can help the Welsh Government to reduce the number of motorcyclists killed or seriously injured on Welsh roads in particular accidents occurring at junctions. Organisations are invited to compete for a share of a total of £510,000 in funding for the prototype development and demonstration of innovative technologies.

 

The challenge will be to develop an effective intervention or technological feature that provides demonstrable improvements in the safety of motorcyclists, either by reducing the likelihood of a collision occurring, or by lessening the impact of a collision.

 

For further information, a Briefing Event will be held on 18 February. You can register for this event via this link: https://wales.business-events.org.uk/en/events/briefing-event-innovation-competition-motorcyclist-casualties/
