Translating research into practice: insights into practical pathways to apply new research findings
Keywords: Road Design, Bicyclists, Road Environment
Submission Date: 2018 Conference: ARSC
Too often, there is a gap between research and action. For researchers, peer-reviewed scientific evidence is the benchmark of success, while for policy makers and practitioners, success is being able to apply findings in the ‘real world’. In this presentation, we will unpack the practical process used to translate the research to practice taken in a major research project that aims to improve cyclist safety. We will discuss the approach used to bring together leading Australian and international road safety experts, practitioners and policy makers to build the pathway from research to practice and increased safety.
