Road safety 2.0: insights and implications for Government
Friday, 11 June 2010
School of Management Associate Professor Dieter Fink will be heading to Bled, Solvenia to present at the Bled e-Conference.
Held from 20 – 23 June 2010, the ERA ‘A-rated’ conference explores the theme of ‘e-Trust: Implications for the Individual, Enterprise, and Society.’ University researchers, as well as delegates from business and government, will attend a variety of paper and prototype presentations on electronic commerce.
As part of the conference, Dieter will be presenting his research on “Road Safety 2.0: Insights and Implications for Government”, which looks at the manner in which Web 2.0 technology can be used to enable government to engage with citizens in order to improve road safety.
Dieter’s study follows a behaviour change model, whereby the public is encouraged to modify their road usage behaviour.
The presentation reports on a survey done for the WA Ofice of Road Safety, which has indicated that the public is willing to use Web 2.0 technology in order to interact with the government on the topic.
“I am hoping to learn more about the Web 2.0 approach from other delegates, particularly as it relates to e-Government services” says Dieter.
