European Institute for Road Assessment
- The European Institute for Road Assessment (EIRA) is a not-for-profit entity established under Slovenian law as a zavod by board members of the European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP), an international not-for-profit membership organisation registered in Belgium in 2002.
- EIRA’s purpose is to promote assessment of the inbuilt safety attributes of roads in south-east Europe and the Balkans using EuroRAP protocols, which promote safer road infrastructure and are embedded in national road safety strategies across Europe.
- EuroRAP staff have supported national road assessment projects and several large transnational projects with the European Commission including the European Road Safety Atlas and the 14-country €1.4m SENSoR programme covering 19.000km of roads in south-east Europe.
- EIRA draws on the support, skills and knowledge of EuroRAP’s 56 public authority and not-for-profit members.
EIRA partners with the European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP) to reduce road deaths and injuries across Europe. To find out more about EuroRAP click here.
