This call has been launched in the frame of the SAF€RA action. It aims to promote European transnational research in the field of industrial safety taking a proactive, multidisciplinary and innovative approach to developing solutions for sustainable growth and enhanced competitiveness of European industry.

Priorities and funded actions:

This call is divided in two topics
– Topic 1: Managing emerging risks
– Topic 2: New technologies for safety

Objectives
* Topic 1: to support investigations into new techniques for assessing and controlling emerging risks

* Topic 2:
– To allow concept development and pilot tests of novel uses of existing technologies for safety management in smart working environments 
– To support experimentation with new uses of existing technologies which have been developed for applications in areas such as medicine, security, military, and aeronautics 
– To develop and test small-scale methods and simulations to predict the properties and behaviour of hazardous substances

Among priorities
– Safety in process industries
– Safety in dangerous goods transport
– Safety in construction and operation of major infrastrucutres
– Occupational safety

Among financed actions
– Topic 1: case studies, empirical evaluations of current practices, development and evaluation of practical methodologies/tools, exploratory studies
– Topic 2: research aiming for concept development and pilot tests, concept development and pilot tests of new characterization methods, either experimental or simulation-based
