bolsistaMost probably a number of scholarships will be made available for participants of this course in Fortaleza. We have no formal approval of our attempts to receive a grant for a scholarship fund yet, but we have high expectations.  Because of this we invite applicants to express their interests in getting a scholarship.  We don’t expect that all participants will get a (full) scholarship covering the course fee. A limited number of scholarships will become available.  A scholarship will only  cover (a part of) the course fee. Travel costs to/from Fortaleza are on your own account.

Include your interests in a scholarship in your registration for the course and indicate if and why your employer will not be paying the full costs of the course fee.

The deadline for submitting a scholarship application is February 1st 2018. Please make sure to apply on time.

noticia Prof. Fred Wegman (presenting report to Chilean Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications, Paola Tapia), the course leader of the Delft Road Safety Course for Latin America, presented the results of a study in Argentina, Chile and Colombia early November 2017. The title of the study is: Benchmarking de la seguridad vial en América Latina.

The report describes and benchmarks road safety management and performance in ten Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay and Uruguay. The comparisons in this study allow identifying similarities and differences between countries’ road safety performance. It will be useful to policy makers in assessing weaknesses and strengths and designing effective road safety policies that make use of the experience in other countries.

The reports are available in Spanish and English (coming soon). The study can be downloaded for free from:

It is also possible to download the methodology of this study from the ITF-website (for free as well):
