Volvo AB Partners Center for Research into Traffic Safety in China

Tuesday, 18 Dec 2012 02:30am EST 

Volvo AB announced that it is one of five partners behind a new center for research into traffic safety in China that was inaugurated on December 18, 2012 in Beijing. The China Sweden Research Center for Traffic Safety signals closer cooperation between Sweden and China in the field of transportation. In China, traffic safety has emerged as an increasingly important issue for both the Chinese government and the general public. When Sweden's Minister for Enterprise Annie Loof visited China in May 2012, the Swedish and Chinese governments signed a letter of intent regarding a joint research facility for traffic safety. The China Sweden Research Center for Traffic Safety was inaugurated and will conduct research projects with the aim of improving road safety both in Sweden and in China. Pilot projects are already under way, including some whose focus is on studying accidents in China involving trucks and buses. The research center also aims to boost the exchange of technology and knowhow between the two countries and to support the two governments' decisions on issues relating to traffic safety. The other partners in addition to AB Volvo are Volvo Car Group, Chalmers University of Technology, the Chinese Ministry of Transport's Research Institute of Highways and Tongji University.
