Summary
 
 

SAF€RA, the ERA-NET coordinating industrial safety research in Europe, held its annual symposium in Paris, France, on February 9-10, 2015.

The 3rd SAF€RA Symposium is the milestone marking the end of the project co-funded by the European Commission, and the start of the SAF€RA Partnership dedicated to focus on the coordination of the European research investment in the field of industrial safety.

The objectives of the Symposium:

Inform about the outcomes of the European SAF€RA project, including a procedure for joint, transnational research programming and launching joint calls for proposals

Present an overview of the current results of the projects funded during the first SAF€RA joint call for proposals with the topic “Human and organizational factors including the value of industrial safety”

Share a vision on the research and technological challenges on industrial safety in Horizon 2020.
