SAFERA is an ERA-NET and therefore aims at coordinating the research investment among the EU Member States in the field of industrial safety.
Objectives of SAFERA:
Building up sustainable channels for communication and effective instruments for collaboration between national programme owners and/or managers and promoting the creation of collective, strategic coalitions at a European level
Increasing awareness about the importance of research in the field of industrial safety as a major contributor to a dynamic knowledge-based economy as well as working to strengthen the impact of this research at the EU, national and international levels
Exploiting synergies and avoiding duplications of research and development among the partners of the Consortium and reducing fragmentation of the European Research Area by increased coordination
Establishing joint programmes of transnational research projects between the involved Member States, materializing in a pilot programme collaborating research projects between the SAFERA partners and serving as a test bed for the future joint programming
