Special issue in Journal and Transportation Engineering on tunnel safety
A special issue in Journal of Traffic and Transportation Engineering (JTTE) is planned for the special session on tunnel safety. The special issue in JTTE will accommodate extended versions of papers presented in ESREL 2021, after further peer review process of JTTE.
ESREL 2021 – an opportunity to promote the Capacity Boost Tunnel Safety project
ESREL's 2021 special session on Tunnel Safety is a good arena for establishing collaboration across research communities within tunnel safety. The University of Stavanger is the project owner of an ongoing project called Capacity Boost Tunnel Safety (KATS) funded by the Research Council of Norway. KATS started in 2018 and will continue until March 2024.
The main goal of KATS is to build research-based expertise that enables the tunnel safety industry to deliver valuable solutions for tunnel safety. New joint activities with partners in the tunnel safety industry on a national and international levels, in both R&D and industrial projects, will be emphasized the next three years.
You can also read an information letter about the KATS-project here (in Norwegian and English).
