INSTRUMENTS FOR EXCHANGE OF KNOWLEDGE

Road safety specialists, civil servants and decision makers tell us that they have a great need for exchange of experiences and expertise concerning speeding. The control of speed is still a particularly tenacious issue. It is difficult to achieve sustainable effects and an integrated approach is needed. New efforts are constantly being devoted to it, and these provide us with new knowledge. However the standard methods for exchange of information, such as reports and brochures, are hardly used, so these information media are not particularly suitable. This makes knowledge transfer an important area of attention for traffic safety policy. In the Netherlands, central government is responsible for the development of new knowledge and for knowledge distribution, despite the decentralization of a major part of the road safety policy to provinces and municipalities. This decentralization makes it all the more necessary that there should be a proper transfer of knowledge. The government has instructed the SWOV to produce a survey showing what forms of knowledge transfer are needed. This is to form the basis for a proposal for the organization of exchange of knowledge in the area of speed control. The product of the survey is: an evaluation of 12 forms of knowledge transfer, in consultation with people involved in the traffic safety field, and a division of responsibilities between the national and regional level, to develop those instruments for transfer of knowledge.
