The Center for Friendly Cities for Mobility Safety – CeSCAM, based at the Department of Civil Engineering, Architecture, Territory, Environment and Mathematics, deals with issues concerning the quality of life, in particular safety in urban mobility, accessibility and quality of urban public spaces, especially in relation to the movements of weak road users.
The activities of the Center will also have a positive influence on the Brescia area, in fact, among the objectives, the identification of a methodology for the processing of data on accidents in the Province of Brescia also emerges, such as the recent agreement between the University of Brescia and the Prefecture, and identify the type of interventions to mitigate the critical issues. Further objectives are: the design of typical interventions of redevelopment of urban outdoor public spaces, in particular mobility infrastructures; monitoring the relationship between urban and territorial development and relative quality of life; the performance of validation of infrastructure projects and verification of the safety of those in operation; scientific research and technical insights on the issues of safety in mobility.
In training, on the other hand, national and international seminars, refresher courses and study conventions will be organized, also in collaboration with Public Bodies, Individuals and Scientific Associations, also encouraging the cultural exchange of students through internships.
